Three lucky travelers could hit the jackpot in 2022 thanks to Marriott Bonvoy. The loyalty program, which counts 30 hotel brands and a whole home rental collection within its portfolio, is giving away a 300-day global adventure to visit all 30 of its hotel brands and moonlight as a social media ambassador.
The lodging behemoth will pay for airfare, hotel stays, on-property activities like spa services and destination experiences.
To become one of its “Marriott Bonvoy TikTok correspondents,” TikTok users should create a video using the hashtags #30stays300days and #contest any time between today and March 18. The video should explain why they are the best person for the job and how travel has shaped who they are as a person. This loyalty program promotion is open to anyone over 21.
The worldwide tour could begin as early as spring of this year, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Marriott Bonvoy members will also earn credit for their stays that count toward elite status, which includes welcome perks like space-available upgrades, welcome gifts or breakfast, and late checkout at many properties. The three winners will also receive a $15,000 stipend to spend (or save) as they wish.
To get around at their destinations, winners will receive vouchers for Uber and Uber Eats. Regular Marriott Bonvoy users may already know that they can link their Marriott and Uber accounts to earn hotel points on Uber Eats food deliver and on certain rides.
As part of the global tour, winners can also take advantage of the Marriott Bonvoy Moments program. These curated experiences immerse travelers in destination activities. Even better, travelers can earn or redeem Marriott Bonvoy points to pay for them if they wish.
For many people, their travel plans were curtailed over the past two years with points accrued from past hotel stays and credit card spending idling in their account. Marriott Bonvoy Moments take place around the world, and even for those not traveling, there may be some options in your own backyard. They include VIP treatment at music concerts, box seats at sporting events, cooking lessons with celebrity chefs and the chance to practice with sport pros.
Another perk for the three winners includes gifts from Marriott Bonvoy Boutiques, which sells gifts from various Marriott brands including Westin’s Heavenly Bed and bespoke candles for the company’s Edition brand.
“We’re excited for our TikTok correspondents to embrace the transformative power of travel and showcase Marriott Bonvoy as the vehicle to explore the world through this once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Brian Povinelli, senior vice president, brand, loyalty and portfolio marketing.
The winners’ new role will use TikTok and other social media platforms to showcase Marriott Bonvoy’s various brands and “document the sights, sounds, places, and people they encounter along the way.”
