Marriott Hotels is the biggest hotel chain in the world, with over 7,000 properties, including The Ritz-Carlton.

They offer a solid loyalty program called Marriott Bonvoy that features a huge range of airline transfer partners.

Note that peak pricing came into effect in September, meaning that the program has moved from having one price for each hotel category to three (off-peak/standard/peak), depending on your dates.

This guide takes a look at the regular Marriott Bonvoy buy points offers and is continuously updated as new offers are announced.


Current offer

Save 30% when you buy 2,000+ points: deal ↠

This is the third buy points promotion since the launch of the Marriott Bonvoy program earlier this year. This one is more generous than the 25% discount in March-May but the same as September-October’s 30% promotion.

The maximum purchase is 50,000 points for US$437.50. However, if you have already bought up to 50,000 points this year, then the cap has been lifted to 100,000 points for 2019.

Discounts are tiered as follows:

  • 1,000: no discount
  • 2,000-50,000 points: 30% discount

At the 30% discount level, this yields a cost of 0.875 US cents (or 1.28 AU cents) per point. That’s above our valuation of Marriott Bonvoy points of 1.2c per point, meaning you’ll want to have a specific redemption in mind (rather than buying speculatively).

This promotion ends on 22 December US time.

Important things to keep in mind

  • Allow 24-48 hours for the transaction to be completed and the points to land in your account
  • A new member may purchase points 30 days after enrollment if their Marriott Bonvoy account has some earn activity; if not, after 1 year from enrollment, a new member is eligible to purchase points regardless of their account activity

Summing up

The Marriott Bonvoy program devalued in 2018. However, the flexibility of their points means that it continues to be a valuable currency, especially if you can grab them during a promotion.
