Marriott Bonvoy has launched their first ever points sale, 25% off when buying 5000 points or more. The points sale strategy seems to be borrowed from SPG where we would routinely see 30%-50% discount sales. The new Marriott Bonvoy points sale is available until May 15, 2019. So, how good is this sale and should you purchase Marriott Bonvoy points?

Marriott Bonvoy Points Sale – 25% off

The 25% off kicks in when purchasing 5000 points or more and translate to 0.94 cents per point. Members can buy or gift up to 50,000 points which would cost $468.75.

Given that I redeem mostly at mid-tier Marriott properties, I value Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.7 cents a piece. So obviously I am not going out of my way to purchase points at 0.94 CPP. However, the price is decent if your account could use a quick top-up for an upcoming stay.  A quick reminder that Marriott Bonvoy allows points advance booking – earn or purchase the needed points at least 14 days prior to check-in. Bonvoy points also convert to several airline miles at 3:1 ratio, plus a 5k bonus on every 60,000 points converted, equaling 25K airline miles.

Thanks for the upgate.

Any idea when Marriott will be introducing “POINT SAVER -OFF PEAK AND PEAK VALUES..

Unfortunately no announcements from Marriott. The obvious suggestion would be to book as many stays as possible, now. Points advance is a good way to do that…
