Marriott Bonvoy has launched a new points promotion offering a bonus of 50% when purchasing 2,000 points or more. The promotion is running through to 22 October 2020.
Normally, Marriott Bonvoy sells points for US1.25cents each. Under the current bonus offer, this would give an average purchase price of US0.83 cents each.
For example, a parcel of 10,000 points would normally cost US$125. With a 50% bonus, you will be getting 15,000 points for that same US$125.
To look at it another way, it represents a discount of 33% when purchasing points. For example, say you wanted 15,000 points, instead of costing you $US187.50, it will now cost $US125. A discount of 33% is on par with some of their previous offers of discounted points.
- Offer: Get 50% bonus points when you purchase 2,000 or more Marriott Bonvoy Points
- Purchase Period: Through to 22 October 2020
- Link to Offer: Link through to Points.com to purchase points
In addition to offering bonus points, Marriott has increased the number of points that you can purchase. Normally, you can purchase up to 50,000 Points during a year. For the promotion period, you can purchase up to 150,000 points. Do keep in mind that any points you may have already purchased this year will be included in that cap.
When you purchase your points, the points will arrive as two transactions. Your purchased points will be deposited into your account up to 7 days after the purchase. Then, about 2 days later, you will receive your bonus points.
The bg benefit of buying points is that you can use the points for award nights. These offers are good if you have such a night in mind as it can end up being cheaper than a cash night.
The 50% bonus is a reasonable offer for Marriott Bonvoy points. It reduces the cost of the points to US0.83cents per point.
