The Brilliant Earned Choice Award

After spending $60,000 on eligible purchases in a calendar year on the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® Card, Card Members may select an award as part of the Brilliant Earned Choice Award. Limited to one award per calendar year. Benefit options include:

  • 5 Nightly Upgrade Awards

    Nightly Upgrade Awards can be requested after your reservation is confirmed, up to 2 p.m. local time of the Participating Property one (1) day prior to arrival. Each Nightly Upgrade Award may be redeemed for a one-night upgrade for select premium rooms or suites on a per-room, per-night basis, subject to availability. There must be enough Nightly Upgrade Awards in your Marriott Bonvoy member account so that one is applied to every night of the reservation.

  • 1 Free Night Award valued at up to 85K points

    You can redeem the Free Night Award for a one-night stay at hotels participating in Marriott Bonvoy® with a redemption level at or under 85,000 points. Certain hotels have resort fees.

  • $1,000 Off a Bed from any Marriott Bonvoy® retail brand

    Card Members will receive an email with a promotional code valued at $1,000 off Marriott Bonvoy retail brand mattresses and box springs.

If you made $60,000 or more in eligible purchases on your Card this year, sign in and choose your benefit by February 1, 2025. If no selection is made by the deadline, 5 Nightly Upgrade Awards will be deposited in your account as your selection.
