Ritz-Carlton Rewards 50,000 bonus points after five nights at Ritz-Carlton hotels is a new promotion offer for stays between July 1 and October 31, 2014. The bonus points may be earned twice for 100,000 points after ten nights. Registration required by September 30, 2014.

The webpage states this offer is targeted and you must be a Ritz-Carlton Rewards member at time of registration. You have nothing to lose trying to register for this promotion if this offer looks better for you than the earn one free night after two stays with Ritz-Carlton.

Loyalty Traveler: Ritz-Carlton free night after two stays July 1- Oct 31, 2014 (June 6, 2014). Ritz-Carlton Rewards member must register by September 30, 2014. Limit of two free nights during this promotion.

Also, Ritz-Carlton Rewards members receive double credit for elite qualification for stays at Ritz-Carlton hotels in 2014. This means 25 nights at Ritz-Carlton Hotels in 2014 earns Gold elite membership.

  • Silver (5 nights)
  • Gold (25 nights)
  • Platinum (38 nights)

Looks like Marriott is really pushing Ritz-Carlton Rewards membership for their high end frequent guests. The Ritz-Carlton Rewards promotions have been very good in 2014. I would consider switching my loyalty membership from Marriott Rewards to Ritz-Carlton Rewards if I frequented Ritz-Carlton hotels.

Instead, I’ll be redeeming one of my Marriott Rewards MegaBonus free nights this week earned last year from two nights at a TownePlace Suites and Fairfield Inn where I paid under $200 all-in. The MegaBonus free night hotel award will get me into a Marriott Hotel when the rates are over $300 per night.

    I have already earned a free night through this one: Ritz-Carlton free night after two stays July 1- Oct 31, 2014

    At the Ritz San Francisco, apparently they have a few mock rooms set up for their upcoming refurb, and have selected the one they will go with.

    Can you use your inside channels to go take a look and let us know what you think?

  2. The thing I like about being a Ritz Carlton Rewards member is that you get both the Ritz Carlton promotions, but also the Marriott promotions. In essence, you can double up. For example, the current Marriott promotion is double points up to 25,000, so if you maxed out the Ritz Carlton promotion you would also get the extra 25,000 points from Marriott in most cases.

  3. @Lark – I expected that members could not sign up for both the free night and the 50K bonus points promotions since both offers are running concurrently.

    The 50K is a better offer for someone with long stays. Two 5-night stays earn 100K rather than two free nights at a category limited hotel.
