Today is also the last day for the best ever bonus for buying Marriott Rewards points. The bonus is 60% when you buy 2,000 or more points in one transaction. Marriott has also increased the annual limit for buying points to 100,000 for the duration of the promotion. To buy 100,000 you’ll have to make two transactions of 50,000 points each as that is the maximum Marriott allows for each purchase. Those amounts do not include the bonus so if you buy 100,000 points you’ll end up with 160,000 points in your account.
Here is an example of the cost of buying 50,000 points:
As you can see you’ll be buying points at 0.78 US cents each. Most valuations of Marriott Bonvoy points has them valued at 0.7 cents each however that is the minimum value. There are many redemption options for award nights where you can get much more value out of each point so buying them right now for future travel can make a lot of sense. Even for domestic travel you can easily pull over 1 cent per point for value (we did in Phoenix before the shutdown at about 1.1 cents) and due to time constraints we only redeemed for four nights – had our schedule been more flexible we would have stayed 5 nights and taken advantage of the 5 night free option which would have boosted the value of each point even higher.
Receive a 60% Bonus when you buy 2,000 or more Marriott Bonvoy Points. The annual limit of points that can be bought per member. has been increased to 100,000 during this promotion. Buy Marriott Bonvoy Points here. Until Jul 15, 20
