Marriott Bonvoy™ and Uber Team Up for First of Its Kind Collaboration Enabling Members to Earn Points on Both Food Delivery and Rides
Starting today, members of Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott International’s (NASDAQ: MAR) award-winning travel program and marketplace, can earn points toward free nights at the company’s extraordinary portfolio of hotels and premium and luxury home rentals when ordering food delivery on Uber Eats and requesting select Uber rides (NYSE: UBER).
Available across the United States, 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, Senior Vice President 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.”
Members can earn points in the following ways:
- Six Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar spent on Uber Eats deliveries to hotels operating under Marriott brands in the United States with a minimum $25 basket, and two Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar spent on non-hotel deliveries and food pick-ups in the United States with a minimum $25 basket.
- Three Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar spent on Uber XL, Comfort and Black rides across the United States.

Uber’s mission is to create opportunity through movement. We started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get access to a ride at the touch of a button? More than 15 billion trips later, we’re building products to get people closer to where they want to be. By changing how people, food, and things move through cities, Uber is a platform that opens up the world to new possibilities.
