About two years ago, Marriott and Uber launched a partnership that allows US Marriott Bonvoy members to earn points on US Uber transactions, including rides and Uber Eats orders. And for a limited time, you’ll earn 3,000 Marriott Bonvoy bonus 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 US with a minimum basket of $25.
- 3 points per dollar on premium Uber rides (Uber XL, SUV, Comfort and Black) in the US.
- 2 points per dollar on non-hotel Uber Eats food deliveries and pickups in the US with a minimum $25 cart.

If you haven’t already linked your accounts, however, you should do so now, as Marriott and Uber are offering new registrants 3,000 Marriott Bonvoy bonus points when they download the Uber app and link their accounts by December 31st. Plus, there are no Uber transaction requirements, so you’ll earn 3,000 bonus points right after you download the app and link 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 doesn’t mention this bonus offer; However, Marriott has confirmed that all Bonvoy members who have not previously linked their Marriott and Uber accounts are eligible for this promotion after downloading the Uber app.

The bottom line
For those who have yet to link their Marriott and Uber accounts, earning 3,000 bonus points without taking an Uber ride is just the 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, consider opening a Marriott credit card. For example, you can earn 3 free night awards (each night worth up to 50,000 points) after you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first three months of account opening with the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card.
