You can use a Marriott free night certificate to pay for a stay at any category 1-5 Marriott property by logging in to your Marriott Rewards account, making a reservation, and choosing the “e-Certificate(s)” option when you get to the “Confirm Details” section. Watch out, though. You only have 12 months to use a Marriott free night certificate before it expires.
Marriott Bonvoy Credit Card users receive one of these reward certificates every account anniversary. You may also get a Marriott free night certificate if you spend points to purchase one. Once you have the certificate in hand, though, you’ll need to know the steps for redeeming it.
Here’s how to use a Marriott free night certificate:
Search for any Category 1-5 hotel and select a booking you’d like.
Start your booking. When you get to the “Confirm Details” section, you’ll see any certificates you’ve earned. To use them, select “Attach the e-Certificate(s) below to my reservation.”
Finish your booking and confirm the transaction.
Your rewards certificate will now be applied to your booking and you’ll get to enjoy a free night. The process should go smoothly, as long as you remember to redeem within 12 months of your certificate being issued. There are no blackout dates for Marriott free night certificates, for example. But if a problem occurs during your booking, you can always call Marriott Credit Card customer service for help. The number is 800-432-3117.
You can redeem it when booking an online reservation. First, you have to select "Use Rewards Points", and then select to attach the certificate and the free night redemption will be made automatically.
