Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
Marriott Bonvoy has launched its first global promotion for 2020, and it's worth registering if you'll have more than two Marriott stays in the next few months.
With the "Elevated Earning" promotion, you'll earn 2,000 Marriott points per stay starting with your second stay, and there's no limit to the number of points you can earn. TPG values Marriott points at 0.8 cents apiece, so 2,000 points is equivalent to about $16.

To participate in the promotion, you'll need to register here by May 31, 2020 and stay between March 17 and June 14, 2020. Starting with your second stay, you'll earn 2,000 points per stay with no cap during the earning period.
You'll be able to earn the bonus at most participating Marriott Bonvoy hotel brands, however:
- Homes & Villas by Marriott International, ExecuStay, Marriott Executive Apartments and Marriott Vacation Club owner-occupied weeks are not eligible for bonus points
- Only points-qualifying rates are eligible, so award stays and bookings made through a third-party site like the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal or Expedia won't earn bonus points
- A stay is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/checkout activity
- You must have your Marriott account set to earn points (not miles) to participate in the promotion
