How to Earn Marriott Bonvoy Points While You Dine

The legendary French chef Auguste Escoffier once said, “Good food is the foundation of genuine happiness.” If you put that delicious philosophy into practice during your travels, you’ll feel even happier when you earn Marriott Bonvoy points while you dine. 

Whether you’re feasting on prime rib at a world-class hotel restaurant, enjoying vegetarian tapas at a local eatery or restocking your groceries, there are ways to rack up Marriott Bonvoy points toward free stays at more than 30 hotel brands worldwide, thrilling sports and entertainment events, and other loyalty member benefits.  

Scroll down to dig into the points possibilities, which are as limitless as they are mouthwatering.

Earn Points on Dining at the Hotel During Your Stay  

If you aren’t earning points on dining at the hotel when you travel to a Marriott Bonvoy participating property, you’re missing out — especially considering the breadth of restaurant and bar offerings available.  

The Global Dining Portal is your key to culinary adventure and collecting Marriott Bonvoy points with your meals. Use the Global Dining Portal to search for and make reservations at on-property restaurants and bars.  

Just imagine hoisting a huge stein of beer at the historic St. Thomas Brewery Bar at Augustine, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Prague. Or sampling a tasting menu with seafood and seasonal vegetables at Atria on the 80th floor of The Ritz-Carlton, Melbourne

When you make dream dining experiences like these a reality, you’ll keep on piling up the points. And yes, room service is included as an option, too.

Earn Points on Dining at a Non-U.S. Hotel — Even Without a Stay  

Did you realize that you can earn points when you eat at some Marriott Bonvoy participating hotels and resorts outside the U.S., even when you’re not staying at those properties?   

This can come in handy if the hotel in question is fully booked and you weren’t able to snag a room or if you live in the city where the hotel is located. Either way, you might still be able to take full advantage of an excellent steakhouse, sushi bar or other fabulous eatery at that property. 

This points-earning opportunity is only available at select properties in select countries. But if you’re in a qualifying location, it’s easy. Just link a Marriott Bonvoy account to your credit card and go to town like a hungry bear who just found a brimming honey pot. Loyalty benefits never tasted so good.

Earn Points with Eat Around Town  

So, you’re sitting at home, and you realize you have no plans for dinner — and you’re hungry. It’s a familiar story. Happily, Eat Around Town is here to help with a network of more than 20,000 participating restaurants. 

Simply join up as a Marriott Bonvoy member and search for restaurants, including both hotel and off-site eateries, in your U.S. city of choice. Thousands of scrumptious options await, from deep-dish pizza in Chicago to fresh tacos in San Diego.  

As the proverbial icing on the proverbial cake, you can reap points per dollar spent on both dine-in and takeout orders. 

Earn Points with Uber Eats 

Let’s be real: Going for groceries can be a chore. But when you link Uber Eats to your Marriott Bonvoy account and order groceries for delivery, the points you collect make it a next-level experience.  

For those days when you don’t have the time or energy to cook, you can also earn points by ordering takeout with Uber Eats. 

Frankly, when you have a chance to grow your Marriott Bonvoy points, it’s always a fine time to dine.
