Get 10x United Miles on Marriott Stays and Still Earn Marriott Points

For a limited time, you can earn 10x United miles per dollar
spent with Marriott in addition to the normal Marriott points
you’d get just by booking your next Marriott stay through
United’s shopping portal.

Shopping
portals
are a great way to earn extra points and miles for
shopping you’d already do. All you have to do is click through
the portal and go about your shopping. A few travel companies,
including Marriott, allow you to earn cash-back or miles when
booking a flight or hotel through a shopping portal.

The United
shopping portal
, as well as a few others, have raised their
rates from the normal 1x/2x miles per dollar spent to up to 10x
miles with Marriott:

Given TPG’s
valuations
of United miles at 1.4 cents each, you’ be
earning a fantastic 14% return from just those miles. The best
part is, unlike other websites like
Rocket Miles
that will dole out points or miles for booking a
prepaid stay through its website — these bookings are direct with
Marriott — so you’ll still earn Marriott points and elite
credits on your stay, too. It should even be stackable with other
Marriott promotions, like
its double points promo
 or
bonus elite nights deal
.


United miles
are useful for bookings on the carrier itself in
addition to flights on its Star Alliance partners like Lufthansa
and
TAP Portugal
.

Both American’s and Delta’s shopping portals also are
offering up increased offers although not as enticing as
United’s.
6x American miles
(8.4% return) and
4x Delta miles
(4.8% return) when booking through the
respective airlines’ portals:

If you are booking a Marriott hotel, make sure to use a credit
card that earns bonus points for either Marriott or travel
purchases. The
Chase Sapphire Reserve
and
Citi Premier Card
are great options if you don’t have a

Marriott Bonvoy cobranded card
, all of which offer 6x points on
Marriott purchases.

Now through April 24, the Marriot Bonvoy
Brilliant™
American Express Card
 and the Marriott Bonvoy
Business™
American Express® Card
 are offering 100,000-point welcome
bonuses after spending $5,000 in the first three months.
