Effective 1/1/2023:


If, in any calendar year of Card Membership, your total eligible purchases on your Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® Card reach or exceed $60,000 (“Purchase Requirement”), you will be eligible to select one of the following benefits as part of the Brilliant Earned Choice Award. The available benefit options include:

  • Five Suite Night Awards™
  • $750 Off a Bed from Marriott Bonvoy® Boutiques
  • Free Night Award with a redemption value up to 85K points

Eligible purchases to meet the Purchase Requirement includes goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do not include fees or interest charges, cash advances, purchases of travelers checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, purchases of gift cards, person-to-person payments, or purchases of other cash equivalents. This benefit is only available to the Basic Card Member on the Card Account and only one Brilliant Earned Choice Award may be earned each calendar year. To qualify for the Earned Choice Award, your Card account must be open and not in default at the time the Award is earned.

The list of Brilliant Earned Choice Award benefit options on choice-benefit.marriott.com/brilliant is subject to change at any time. Once a Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® card holder becomes eligible to receive the Brilliant Earned Choice Award, he/she must choose his/her Brilliant Earned Choice Award by visiting choice-benefit.marriott.com/brilliant and selecting one of the Brilliant Earned Choice Awards. A selection must be made through choice-benefit.marriott.com/brilliant and may not be made through Member Support. All Brilliant Earned Choice Award selections are final. In the event that an eligible card holder fails to select a Brilliant Earned Choice Award by 11:59 p.m. Eastern US Time on March 1st of the year following the applicable Qualifying Period, such card holder will receive five (5) Suite Night Awards™ as his/her Brilliant Earned Choice Award ("Suite Night Awards," individually "Suite Night Award").

  • Suite Night Awards may be redeemed for advance confirmable upgrades for select, Premium Rooms or standard suites on a per room, per night basis, subject to availability and the applicable terms and conditions set forth below for Suite Night Awards. It may take up to 8-12 weeks for Five Suite Night Awards to be deposited into the Marriott Bonvoy member account after the Card Member selects this benefit.
    • Suite Night Awards expire on December 31 of the year following the year in which they were earned. For example, if the $60,000 spend threshold is achieved in 2023 and five Suite Night Awards are selected as the Brilliant Earned Choice Award, the five Suite Night Awards will have an expiration date of December 31, 2024.
    • Suite Night Awards may be used only on Loyalty Program eligible paid stays as well as Award Redemption Stays.
    • A Member may request to use their Suite Night Awards on Marriott.com, the Marriott Bonvoy Mobile App, or by calling a Customer Engagement Center.
    • Suite Night Awards may only be used for standard suites or other Premium Rooms as designated by the Participating Property.
    • Suite Night Award use is based upon availability of the requested suite or Premium Room. Checking for availability begins five (5) days before arrival. If availability is not confirmed five (5) days before arrival, availability is checked each day before arrival up to 2 p.m. local time of the Participating Property one (1) day prior to arrival. If at that time Suite Night Awards cannot be confirmed, the Suite Night Awards are credited back to the Member’s account.
    • Suite Night Awards may be used only when there are enough in the Member’s Account so that one is applied to every night of the reservation.
    • One Suite Night Award is required per room per night.
    • Suite Night Awards are required for each night of the stay including any nights that may be designated "free" such as the Stay for 5, Pay for 4 Offer.
    • Suite Night Awards may not be transferred or given as a gift or used as part of a multiple room reservation; however, a Member may use Suite Night Awards for additional single-room reservations on his/her own stay as long as the Member is present for the stay and the other reservations are under the Member’s name.
    • Members who book separate reservations for consecutive nights that precede or follow a reservation that has confirmed Suite Night Awards will be required to change rooms to the confirmed room type on any night(s) where a Suite Night Award is not used.
    • If a Participating Property offers multiple room options for the Suite Night Award, once the suite/premium room option(s) is selected, the selection may be changed until 2 p.m. local time of the Participating Property the day before arrival so long as the Suite Night Award is unconfirmed. Confirmed Suite Night Awards may be canceled up to 2 p.m. local time of the Participating Property one (1) day prior to arrival only if the entire reservation is canceled.
    • Suite Night Awards have requesting, booking, cancellation, and modification policies that are in addition to – but completely separate from – the booking, cancellation, and modification policies for the reservations on which they are used.
      • Requests to use Suite Night Awards on a reservation may be made up to 2 p.m. local time of the Participating Property one (1) day prior to arrival.

      • Confirmed Suite Night Awards may be canceled up to 2 p.m. local time of the Participating Property one (1) day prior to arrival only if the entire reservation is canceled.
      • Once Suite Night Awards have been confirmed, the Member must cancel the entire reservation to receive credit back for all Suite Night Awards. Cancellation of a confirmed Suite Night Award reservation after 2 p.m. local time of the Participating Property one (1) day prior to arrival will result in the forfeiture of all Suite Night Awards applied to the entire reservation.
      • Suite Night Awards cannot be applied to a reservation once the reservation has been checked-in to a Participating Property.
      • If a Member departs his/her reservation early, any unused Suite Night Awards confirmed for the stay will be forfeited.
      • If a Member extends his/her reservation and has enough Suite Night Awards to cover the extension, the Member may use his/her Suite Night Awards based upon availability and at the Participating Property’s discretion.
