Marriott is giving away dozens of Taylor Swift tickets — and a trip to see her in three countries

by Staff

Hey! I don’t know about you but … I’m obsessed with Taylor Swift. I’m also obsessed with Marriott Bonvoy, which helped me use points to snag a great hotel in Atlanta when I visited to see “The Eras Tour.” (I realized it was cheaper to go to Atlanta using points and miles than to buy resale tickets for my local show in New York City.)

Thankfully, Marriott also happens to be one of Taylor’s touring partners for “The Eras Tour.” So, if you had a cruel summer last year and couldn’t make it to one of the shows, it’s time to shake it off. Marriott Bonvoy is giving you a (few) second chances through Marriott Bonvoy Moments.

“While most people think Marriott Bonvoy is a hotel rewards program for frequent guests, insiders and new customers are learning Marriott Bonvoy has evolved to provide today’s members much more,” Peggy Roe, Marriott International’s executive vice president and chief customer officer, told TPG. And what Marriott Bonvoy Moments has in store for Swifties might make some wildest dreams come true.

Fans can win one of three incredible packages that’ll guarantee you have the best day seeing Taylor Swift live. The three packages, Marriott explained in a statement, include (ready for it?):

  • 3 Concerts, 3 Countries, An Unforgettable Experience: You and a guest can win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to see Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” at three different tour stops at select shows in Europe, the USA and Canada. Each four-day, three-night trip for two includes air travel, hotel accommodations, two concert tickets and a Marriott Bonvoy welcome gift.
  • Vancouver Ultimate Concert Experience: Head to Vancouver, British Columbia, for “The Eras Tour.” This four-day, three-night trip for two includes air travel, hotel accommodations, two concert tickets, and a Marriott Bonvoy welcome gift.
  • “Where Can We Take You?” Concert Packages: Win two tickets to see “The Eras Tour” in select cities and a Marriott Bonvoy welcome gift. Packages are available for multiple performances at tour stops, including Stockholm; Madrid; Zurich; Milan; Hamburg, Germany; Vienna; Miami; New Orleans; Indianapolis; Toronto; and Vancouver.

You need to calm down, but you read that right: One of the prizes includes not just seeing Taylor once or twice but three different times in three different cities. Digging into the official rules, it looks like the winner (and a companion) of 3 Concerts, 3 Countries, An Unforgettable Experience will head off on three separate four-day, three-night trips to Vienna, Miami and Toronto. The trip is worth $19,497.

While winning concert tickets is amazing, winning tickets and hotel accommodations is a dream — especially considering Swift’s tour has caused hotel rates to skyrocket due to major demand on concert nights. “Our hotels have seen huge surges in demand and [average daily rates] during Taylor Swift’s ‘The Eras Tour’ with a city’s [hotel performance] nearly doubling during her concert dates,” Marriott CEO Anthony Capuano recently said.

As for the Where Can We Take You? concert packages, the sweepstakes page shows that tickets will be available for select shows in the U.S., Europe and Canada.

But there are still even more ways to get Swift tickets through Marriott. With Marriott Bonvoy Moments, members can use points to bid on packages that include two concert tickets, a two-night stay at a Marriott Bonvoy property, dinner at a Marriott Bonvoy premier restaurant, a spa treatment, and transportation to and from the venue. The bidding starts March 13 at 7 a.m. EST.

Even if you don’t win tickets but happen to be in a tour stop, keep your ears open for Marriott Bonvoy activations and events. As Roe told TPG, “All guests of select Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Tokyo during the Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour, were delighted to find complementary access with basic membership to friendship bracelet-making stations in lobbies. In Ginza, local fans of all ages queued up in front of the Aloft hotel to get inside and make their own bracelets. Beyond just points, our goal is to surprise and delight members with more of what they are passionate about.”
