FYI: Got credit for Uber Eats.

The charges were on 5/31 ó two of them ($26 and $3).

Marriott Bonvoy Credit for both charges on 6/2.

Uber Eats is categorized under restaurants which makes sense it counted the credit.

Charge Details:
Uber Eats
1455 Market Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

Reminder:
Have till end of August to use restaurants for the $300 credit.

This is good since my annual is up end of July and still need to use up all my credits!

Enjoy!

I have put 2 restaurant charges so far on the card, but no credit after almost 2 weeks. I called the number on the back of the card and was told it can take up to 6-8 weeks to credit back?!

I too was told 6 to 8 weeks (or sooner).

Agent "verbally" confirmed POSTMATES, and Uber Eats do qualify.

I have several charges after June 1 on the above and no credits

I havenít tried it with the Bonvoy Brilliant yet, but Iíve been consistently getting restaurant credits with the Hilton Aspire. I would assume they code the same way.

Does anyone know if you can use food delivery services like Uber Eats, DoorDash, or Grubhub?

Thanks!
Anyone been successful with GrubHub yet?

On June 19, I charged take-out from Charleston's and Ted's Escondido (both in OKC). Both show credits dated 6/21.

Any PD for those that had their anniversary/annual fee in Jun and got restaurant credit as part of the $300 annual Marriott credit promo from Jun-Aug? Just wondering...

Wondering the same thing.

My Brilliant card anniversary date is August. Should I spend the $300 now, then get it again in August? Only 1 week left in July!

Hopefully they will extend the $300 in restaurants for a few more months. I have a renewal coming in September - my loyalty to Starwood has greatly diminished due to their rewards program (when travel resumes I just stay and pay for the best option - be Starwood or not) so the restrictive 1 free 50K night (which will likely expire unused) or $300 hotel credit are less valuable this time.

Just wanted to quickly clarify - does the $300 credit get used if you book a hotel online with Marriott directly?

I understand buying gift cards and using the card at Marriott properties triggers the credit.

Yes. Note that prepaid rates aren't always immediately charged to the card, so if you are running up against the deadline you may have to call to ask them to put the charge through. (Even on non-prepaid you can apparently also call and ask them to charge a deposit, unlikely they will refuse...)

To be clear, it's the purchase that triggers the credit (the redemption of the gift card is not relevant as far as that goes)

I am hoping the restaurant benefit gets extended past August too. My $450 AF posts September 7 and no plans for hotel travel in the near future. I may need to cancel the card in early September

Is there any data point that this has been extended? I got a credit for a $50 Marriott Bonvoy credit for a restaurant charged on 9/4. Just checking if any one is seeing this.
