About two years ago, Marriott and Uber launched a partnership that lets U.S. Marriott Bonvoy members earn points on U.S. Uber transactions, including rides and Uber Eats orders. And for a limited time, you'll earn 3,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points when you download the Uber app and link your Marriott and Uber accounts here.

Bonvoy members can earn the following:

  • 6 Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar on Uber Eats deliveries to hotels operating under Marriott brands in the United States with a minimum $25 basket.
  • 3 points per dollar on premium Uber (Uber XL, SUV, Comfort and Black) rides in the United States.
  • 2 points per dollar on non-hotel Uber Eats deliveries and food pickups in the United States with a minimum $25 basket.

If you haven't already linked your accounts, though, you should do so now since Marriott and Uber offer new registrants 3,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points when they download the Uber app and link accounts by Dec. 31. Additionally, there's no Uber transaction requirement, so you'll earn the 3,000 bonus points just after downloading the app and linking your accounts.

We value 3,000 Marriott Bonvoy points at $24. Earlier this year, Marriott offered 1,000 points to members who linked their Uber and Marriott accounts.

It's worth noting that Marriott's website does not mention this bonus offer; however, Marriott has confirmed that all Bonvoy members who have not yet previously linked their Marriott and Uber accounts are eligible for this promotion after they download the Uber app.

To link your accounts, open the Uber app, go to "Account," then "Settings," and scroll down. Tap on "Marriott Bonvoy" and then sign in to your Marriott Bonvoy account with your email or membership number and wait for confirmation that your accounts have been linked. If you've just downloaded the Uber app and this is the first time you've linked your Marriott and Uber accounts, you'll automatically receive the 3,000 bonus points within the next six weeks — as long as you link your accounts by Dec. 31.

Bottom line

For those who have yet to link their Marriott and Uber accounts, earning 3,000 bonus points without taking an Uber trip is just icing on the cake for an already attractive double dip opportunity.

Remember to use one of the best credit cards for Uber or the best credit cards for food delivery so you can maximize your earnings (or savings).

If you're interested in earning more Marriott points, you might consider opening a Marriott credit card. For example, you can earn 3 free night awards (each night valued up to 50,000 points) after you spend $3,000 on purchases in your first three months from your account opening with the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card.

Why We Chose It

There's a lot to love about the Amex Gold card. It's been a fan favorite during the pandemic because of its fantastic rewards rate on restaurants (that includes takeout and delivery in the U.S.!) and U.S. supermarkets. If you're hitting the skies soon, you'll also earn bonus points on travel. Paired with up to $120 in Uber Cash (for U.S. Uber rides or Uber Eats orders) and up to $120 in annual dining statement credits at eligible partners, there's no reason that the foodie shouldn't add this card to their wallet. Enrollment required.
