A buy points bonus for Marriott Bonvoy has returned and it is a mystery bonus that will vary by member. Personally I received a 50% bonus offer. 50% is at a level where it can make sense to buy Marriott Bonvoy points for some free night stays. Sure it isn’t the 60% we saw in November 2020 but it is better than the 40% some people received earlier this year. The bonus is awarded on purchases from 2,000 to 100,000 points and that 100,000 is a doubling of the typical 50,000 point annual limit for buying points. This is also lower than the 150K we saw with the 60% bonus in November.

With a 50% bonus you end up buying points for 0.83 US cents each – higher than the 0.7 cents we typically value Bonvoy points at but you have to remember that 0.7 is our minimum. There are many examples of where you can redeem points and get a per point value well above 1 cent, 2 cents or even 3 cents a piece. Ultimately do the math to see if it makes sense for you to buy points – don’t just buy them because there is bonus.

  1. Spin the wheel and that will decide how much you pay. Something about that just rubs me wrong.

    If you know that some people in general public are getting 50% bonus does that make you less likely to buy points if you only get a 40% discount?

    1. I agree with you – they should just make it the same bonus across the board for everyone – chances are they would sell even more points, like you said if you get the 40% bonus will pass over this offer in hopes that the next time you get 50%.
