Summer just got even better for frequent travelers enrolled in Marriott’s allied hotel loyalty programs: Marriott Rewards, Ritz-Carlton Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest. Starting May 27, 2017, members will earn more points on qualifying hotel stays through Sept. 4, 2017. Members can register for these promotions until Aug. 30, 2017.

These deals get even better if you carry the Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card or the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express, which offer additional points for paying for your stay with the card.

There is no limit to the number of stays that earn rewards during the promotional period. Terms and conditions vary for each program. Here’s how many rewards your summer nights can earn:

  • Marriott Rewards MegaBonus: Earn 2,000 bonus points per stay, starting with your second stay during the promotional period. You’ll also earn an additional 2,000 points for each stay at a different participating hotel brand. That means if you’re willing to bounce around to new hotels, you could earn 4,000 bonus points per stay. 
  • The Ritz-Carlton Rewards Summer Sojourns: Earn double rewards points for every stay of two nights or more at participating Ritz-Carlton hotels and resorts.
  • SPG Take Three: Earn double Starpoints on weekdays and triple on weekends for stays of two nights or more at participating SPG hotels and resorts.

Points can be redeemed for hotel stays, flights and more, depending on the loyalty program. The value of points varies based on redemption options.

If you’ve got the travel bug and you’re a member of one of these programs, this offer can put a little more sunshine in your summer.
