The latest promotion from Marriott Bonvoy is a 50% bonus on purchase of 2000 points or more. The promotion is valid on all points purchases from now through October 22, 2020. The annual limit is 150,000 points, and includes points previously purchased in 2020, but does not include the 50% bonus points earned with this promotion. So, how good is this sale and should you purchase Marriott Bonvoy points?

Marriott Bonvoy Points Sale

The 50% bonus applies when purchasing 2000 points or more and translates to 0.833 cents per point – good, but not the lowest. We have seen Bonvoy points sold at 0.78 CPP in previous promotions from Marriott.  The purchase limit has been tripled from 50,000 to 150,000 for the duration of this promotion. Members can buy or gift up to 150,000 points at a time, with 50% bonus the 225,000 points which would cost $1875. Note that points purchased previously count towards the 150k yearly limit, as shown screen grab below;

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 0.833 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 (up to 5) – 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.

If you decide to purchase bonvoy points through this sale, note that the transaction is processed through and will not count as a hotel/travel transaction. Best to use a credit card that gives you a good return on daily spends.
