Marriott Rewards' Summer Bonus promotion kicks off Tuesday and will provide members of Marriott International's loyalty program with an opportunity to earn bonus points on stays all summer long.

What's more, members residing in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. who register for the promotion will also automatically be entered into the Sweet Summer Sweeps for a chance to win even more points. 

The highlight of the sweepstakes will see Marriott Rewards award 100,000 points to 100 lucky winners for a total of 10 million free points.

How It Works

Marriott Rewards members can register for the promotion by clicking here, but must register by Sept. 5, 2016.

Once registered, members will be eligible to earn 2,000 bonus points on every qualifying stay between now and Sept. 5, beginning with their second stay. 

Participating members can earn a maximum of 10,000 bonus points over the course of the promotion.

The more members stay during this period, though, the greater their odds will be of winning the Sweet Summer Sweeps since they'll receive an additional entry for every stay. 

Keep in mind every Marriott brand is participating in the Summer Bonus promotion with the exception of Ritz-Carlton. 

A New Way to Redeem Points

In addition to redeeming their bonus points for free future hotel stays, members will soon be able to put their points toward Marriott Rewards' experiences marketplace.

Here, members will be able to choose from a long list of curated special experiences and opportunities ranging from athlete meet and greets to wine tastings. 

Announced last month, the experiences marketplace is one of a handful of new member benefits and is scheduled to open to all members later this month.
