Members of Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott International’s travel program and marketplace, can earn points toward free nights at the company’s hotels and home rentals when ordering food delivery on Uber Eats and ordering select Uber rides.

Available across the U.S., Marriott Bonvoy members who link their Marriott Bonvoy and Uber accounts in the Uber app will automatically start earning points on all qualifying transactions. Members will be able to earn up to six points per dollar spent on Uber Eats delivery with a minimum $25 basket and three points per dollar spent on Uber XL, Comfort and Black rides. For a limited time, members who link their accounts and have at least one qualifying transaction by May 31 will earn an extra 2,000 Marriott Bonvoy bonus points.

“We are continuing to see our members return to travel and are excited to give them more opportunities to earn points toward free nights through Uber rides and Uber Eats,” said David Flueck, SVP of global loyalty, Marriott International. “This tremendous relationship with Uber reflects our goal to engage members and enable them to earn and redeem points whether traveling or through everyday activities at home.”

To link accounts, members can open the Uber app and tap the menu on the top left corner. Tap ‘Settings,’ and scroll down to tap ‘Marriott Bonvoy’ under the Rewards section. Tap ‘Link Account’ and then log into the Marriott Bonvoy account. Once accounts are linked, users can start earning points. Points balances can be viewed on Marriott Bonvoy account profiles.
