Marriott Bonvoy launched a new points-earning program for members. The Eat Around Town program allows members to earn Marriott Bonvoy points at more than 11,000 restaurants.

Through Nov. 11, members receive eight Marriott Bonvoy points for every $1 spent at participating restaurants. Afterward, Elite members receive six points for every $1 spent and regular members receive four points for every $1 spent. Members may search for participating restaurants via the program’s database. Member spending at participating restaurants is tracked via a credit card linked to member accounts.

“Our members are passionate about food and dining which go hand in hand with travel. We are excited to let our members earn points when they dine at over 11,000 restaurants with Eat Around Town by Marriott Bonvoy,” said David Flueck, senior vice president, global loyalty, Marriott International. “Sharing an amazing meal with family, friends or colleagues will now be more rewarding as members can earn a significant number of points to enjoy the benefits of Marriott Bonvoy, even when they are not staying with us.”

Eat Around Town was developed in conjunction with Rewards Network, a restaurant fintech company.

“Marriott Bonvoy is an iconic travel program known throughout the world, and we are delighted to provide our network of restaurants with this incredible opportunity to serve such an active and loyal member base,” said Ed Eger, CEO, Rewards Network. “Marriott Bonvoy boosts awareness for our restaurants, and we are excited to give their members a new way to earn points while dining.”
