Ritz-Carlton Rewards $100 Gift Card after 5 nights March 15-June 30, 2011

Ritz-Carlton Rewards members earn a US$100 Ritz-Carlton gift card after 5 nights or a US$250 Ritz-Carlton gift card after 10 nights at Ritz-Carlton Hotels worldwide during the promotion period between March 15 and June 30, 2011.  Nights are cumulative and do not need to be consecutive nights in a single stay.

Ritz-Carlton Rewards gift card promotion link. No promotion registration is required. You still earn points or miles for Ritz-Carlton stays in addition to the gift card offer.

This offer is only for Ritz-Carlton Rewards members and does not apply to Marriott Rewards members. This is the first Ritz-Carlton Rewards loyalty promotion I recall since the program launched in September 2010.

The following Ritz-Carlton properties are not participating in this global gift card promotion.       

  • The Ritz-Carlton Millenia, Singapore,
  • Phulay Bay Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Krabi, Thailand
  • The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club (time-share program)
  • The Ritz-Carlton Residences and Partner Hotels.

This seems like an odd term in the fine print: Offer requires member to be an existing or new member of Ritz-Carlton Rewards as of March 14, 2011.  This reads to me like you must already be a member to be eligible for the gift card, yet the promotion page states, “Not a member? We invite you to enroll now.”

Terms state the gift card will be mailed 4 to 6 weeks after the conclusion of the promotion, so likely late July or August before gift card is received by member. Gift cards are valid at all Ritz-Carlton Hotels worldwide.
