This is an offer we used to see back in the of Starwood Preferred Guest and now is the first official buy points discount from the Marriott Bonvoy program. Marriott themselves, when they ran Marriott Rewards typically did not offer bonuses or discounts on buying points but it appears that they may see the value in doing so after the takeover of SPG. Back in the SPG day most offers were 35% off which meant you were buying an SPG point US 2.28 cents (and since Marriott valued SPG points at 3:1 to Marriott) you were effectively buying Marriott points for 0.76 cents each. With this 25% discount you are buying Bonvoy points at 0.937 cents each. This is noticeably higher than we saw with SPG. That being said, there are many redemptions with Marriott where you can get over 1 cent per point value so buying points could make sense for an expensive stay or for topping off an account. This is encouraging however and perhaps Marriott will see how successful or unsuccessful this offer is and adjust it for future sales to something that is more inline with the old SPG buy points offers.
Receive a 25% discount when you buy 5,000 or more Marriott Bonvoy points. Maximum of 50,000 points can be bought per calendar year. Buy Marriott Bonvoy Points here Until May 15, 19
