Marriott Hotels is the biggest hotel chain in the world, with 6700+ properties, including The Ritz-Carlton.
They offer a solid loyalty program called Marriott Bonvoy that features a huge range of airline transfer partners.
This guide takes a look at the regular Marriott buy points offers and will be continuously updated as new offers are announced.
Save 25% when you buy 5,000+ points: deal ↠
Marriott Bonvoy is offering a discount of 25% when you purchase 5,000 or more points. This appears to be the first discount offered for points purchases since the launch of the Marriott Bonvoy program earlier this year.
The maximum purchase is 50,000 points (which is the limit for each calendar year) for US$468.75.
Discounts are tiered as follows:
- 1,000-4,000 points: no discount
- 5,000-50,000 points: 25% discount
At the 25% discount level, this yields a cost of 0.94 US cents per point— which is below our maximum earn threshold of 1.2c per point.
In comparison, Starwood Preferred Guest, which was one of its predecessors, frequently offered discounts that ranged from 20% up to 35%, with an average between May 2014 and July 2018 being 30.71%.
The offer is valid until 15 May 2019 (US Eastern Time).
|Date||Discount/bonus (%)||Cost per point (USD)||Notes|
|March-May 2019||25%||0.94||First promotion|
Nothwithstanding the devaluation of the Marriott Bonvoy program in 2018, the flexibility of Marriott Bonvoy currency means that it will continue to be a valuable currency, especially if you can grab them during great promotions.
