Loyalty programs can deliver exceptional value with free hotel stays and perks around the world, but it’s not every day that you can get a Super Bowl sneak peak before anyone else thanks to one.
Courtyard by Marriott, part of the Marriott Bonvoy program, is relaunching its Super Bowl Sleepover Contest giving members the chance to score the ultimate sports fan experience. As the official hotel of the National Football League (NFL) for more than ten years, the contest gives members the chance to enter for an opportunity to spend the night in a specially created guest room inside Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium the night before Super Bowl LVI in February 2022.
Hopeful participants must enter by sharing a video explaining why football inspires them to travel via Instagram, TikTok or Twitter and using the hashtag #CourtyardSuperBowlContest. The contest launched this week with the deadline to post a video midnight eastern time on Halloween night.
The winner, who will be able to spend the night inside the Los Angeles stadium with a guest, will be chosen based on the “creativity, relevance, originality and impact” of their post. Finalists for the contest will move to an interview round before a winner is chosen in January.
Winners will also receive a weekend of hosted experiences and tickets to the Super Bowl to watch from the comfort of their in-stadium suite, which is designed to look like a Courtyard by Marriott guest room.
Even if you do not win, Marriott Bonvoy members can bid on access to NFL kickoff celebrations or Super Bowl tickets using their points. Via Marriott Bonvoy Moments, hotel points are redeemable toward experiences including unique sports, entertainment and culinary-themed events.
These include using points for access to a luxury suite at Madison Square Garden to watch the New York Rangers play, tickets to the U.S. Grand Prix, dinner at Nobu Malibu and an interactive cooking demo with Chef Nobu Matsuhisa himself, and red carpet tickets to the MTV Video Music Awards, among others.
Green Bay Packers fans may be particularly interested in using Marriott Bonvoy points to lead the “Go Pack Go” chant at Green Bay Packers home games. If you are low on points, be sure to take advantage of the regular promotions that loyalty programs offer that can help top up your account.
