Rewarding Events with Marriott


Looking at some of the options to generate Marriott nights (EQNs) as the end of the year is approaching (and I'm a bit away from requalifying), I thought I'd offer the question of whether anyone has tried using Rewarding Events.


You'll receive:

  • Maximum rewards of 50,000 points (3 points per $1 USD) or 15,000 miles (1 mile per $1 USD) with one qualifying event
  • Points for each room night, regardless if you or your guest is paying for it
  • 10 Elite Nights when you book 10+ guest rooms for at least one night
  • Instant Silver Elite status or Elite Night credit towards your next level up
By my read, that means that for a "rewarding event" (potentially as low as $150) you can generate 10 EQNs (read: as low as $15 per EQN).

Does any one have experience doing this?

With the changes in Lifetime Status qualifications coming later this year, I am thinking about this too. I would love to hear reports of experiences.
