Marriott Rewards Triple Miles Promotion Oct 1-Dec 31, 2010

Marriott has a new offer of triple airline miles for fall 2010 travel from October 1 through December 31, 2010. You will find this offer when you set your Marriott Rewards account earning preference to miles instead of points. Registration is required.

Only five airlines are participating in this Marriott 3x miles promotion:

  • Continental
  • Air Canada
  • British Airways
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Jet Airways

Triple miles begin with your second stay. This offer applies to all Marriott properties and brands worldwide.

Triple Miles Promotion terms and conditions.

Marriott Rewards members may earn miles with 30 airlines, but this promotion only applies to the five airlines listed above.

The regular earning rate is 2 miles per US$1 on all qualifying charges at Marriott Hotels, JW Marriott, Renaissance, Autograph Collection and Marriott Vacation Club. This means your room service, restaurant purchases, spa services and such will count for miles. Earn 6 miles per $1 with the “Triple Miles” promotion this fall.

Other Marriott brands earn 1 mile per US$1 spent on room rate only. Earn 3 miles per $1 with the Triple Miles promotion at Courtyard, Fairfield Inn, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites, TownePlace Suites and Marriott Executive Apartments. These six Marriott brands do not earn any miles for food and incidentals hotel spend.

So don’t count your miles when you order that fine bottle of wine at the Napa SpringHill Suites.

  1. can this be combined with the fall mega (in my case stay 2 nights get a free cat 1 – 4 night cert? or do you need to be earning points to get the mega bomus and miles to get the triple miles?

  2. Receive 1.5 credits per stay at any Marriott brand. The great thing about Southwest is the same miles for lower tier brands in Marriott and Hilton.

    Gary – Hilton used to be the only program to double dip for miles and points. Then Hyatt and Starwood started frequently doing it last year.

    Marriott is still miles or points as far as I know.

  3. Checked the T&C, it says the following are participating partners:
    Continental
    British Airways
    Cathay Pacific
    Air Canada
    Jet Airways

    No Southwest……bummer! 1.5 credits per stay would be sweet.

  4. Paul – thanks for the update. This promotion allowed me to register the day I posted this, however, there were no terms and conditions posted for the triple miles offer.

    What a disappointment to see that only five airlines are participating.

    I’ll update this post to reflect the terms.

  5. You do not lose accumulated Marriott Rewards points by changing your earning preference to miles.

    You will not earn Marriott Rewards points for hotel stays when your earning preference is set to miles.
