You are currently viewing Video: How I got this amazing hotel for free with my Marriott points

We’ve told you about this very good deal many times, because it’s the best deal out there for Canadian travelers. But here’s a short to-the-point summary. It’s very easy to get 11 free nights in many beautiful hotels like the one I stayed at in Uzbekistan in May, a brand-new property that just opened in December 2020.

If you weren’t following my trip in real-time on Instagram, here is the intro video you missed about this deal.


And here is how it works.


Getting free hotels

It’s crazy simple.

First, you apply for the Marriott Bonvoy American Express® Card (no minimum income required).

Then you spend $1,500 in 3 months to unlock the welcome bonus (it’s easy to reach with our tips).

And the welcome bonus alone is enough for 11 completely free nights in many amazing destinations, like Bali (no taxes to pay, nothing).

(You can see the top 5 countries where you can go, but if you want even more options, you can instead get 6 free nights in 50+ countries too.)

That’s it.

It’s that easy.

You can read our detailed review of the Marriott Bonvoy Card that also includes a video presentation if you prefer.

The current increased welcome bonus is for a limited time only…

So it’s a great time to finally get in on the fun: Flytrippers readers have earned over a million dollars in travel rewards with welcome bonuses alone, with the cards we recommended.

How much have you gotten?

And finally, I’ll have a complete review of the Courtyard Tashkent hotel after my very enjoyable stay is over.

For those who prefer Bali, I’ll soon share an itinerary for a complete 3-week trip for just ≈ $1,100 total with this deal, and yes that includes flights and everything else.

That’s because if your travel buddy gets the Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card, you get 23 completely free nights in total!
