If you’re a frequent traveler and use Uber for your transportation needs, you’ll love the latest partnership between Uber and Marriott. This exciting collaboration allows you to earn Marriott Bonvoy points every time you use Uber, but there are a few steps you need to take to start earning those points.
Linking Your Accounts
To begin earning Marriott Bonvoy points on your Uber transactions, the first thing you need to do is link your Uber and Marriott accounts. It’s a simple process. Just head over to this link and follow the instructions to link your accounts.
How Many Points Can You Earn?
Once your accounts are linked, it’s time to start earning those bonus points. Here’s a breakdown of how many bonus Marriott points you can earn based on different Uber transactions:
|Category||Bonus Marriott points|
|Uber Premium rides – Uber XL, Uber Black, Uber SUV and Uber Comfort||3 points per USD|
|Uber Eats – Food and Grocery. When staying at a Marriott hotel.||6 points per USD|
|Uber Eats – Food and Grocery. (Not at a Marriott property)||2 points per USD|
It’s important to note that for Uber Eats orders, they must be worth US$40 or more (excluding taxes, fees, and tips) to qualify for earning Marriott Bonvoy points.
Maximize Your Savings
When looking at the bigger picture, it becomes evident how valuable this partnership can be for travelers. Commute expenses, grocery shopping bills, and dining out contribute significantly to our monthly budgets.
By combining the benefits of this partnership with a Marriott credit card, you can potentially save enough to enjoy a free vacation every year.
It’s interesting to see how Marriott is incentivizing ordering food from restaurants, even though their properties already have their own dining options.
However, it makes perfect sense. People are unlikely to change their dining preferences solely for bonus points. After all, dining at Marriott restaurants earns you points anyway.
By extending this reward program to Uber Eats, Marriott is appealing to a wider audience and providing an additional benefit for loyal customers.
