Marriott Bonvoy may have a good value fall 2019 offer. Or maybe not. The uncertainty is due to Marriott Bonvoy teasing an ‘Unlock More‘ offer for stays from October 29, 2019 to January 14, 2020.
The deal is register for promotion by December 31, 2019, stay two times and earn 2,000 bonus points, then wait to receive your Unlock More offer. 2,000 bonus points for two stays is nothing worth even writing about unless you want to spin it as 40% of the points needed for an off-peak category 1 hotel reward night for 5,000 points at a hotel like Courtyard by Marriott Pilsen, Czech Republic this winter. Having spent a couple of hot days in Pilsen in July, I get a good feeling thinking about drinking in Plzen’s pubs in winter after walking around town in the cold. Courtyard Pilsen is right in the midst of the old town area and Pilsner Urquell Brewery, home of the original lager, is about ten minutes walking distance.

Since this promotion does not start until October 29 and there is no indication as to what kind of offer you can unlock, this Unlock More promotion goes in the ‘further review’ segment of stories.
By early November there should be word about what Marriott Bonvoy members can unlock and whether that is any incentive to stay two or more times at Marriott over the 11 weeks Oct 29-Jan 14 promotion period.
I’ll revisit this promotion in November when more details emerge about what can be unlocked.
