Both Marriott and Virgin Australia announced new campaigns where members have the chance to redeem one (1) point for select rewards! I would liken it to coincidence that both launched these promotions at the same time as I don’t see any connection between the two!
Marriott Bonvoy Moments 1 Point Drop
Marriott Bonvoy is introducing new 1 Point Drop rewards in their Marriott Bonvoy Moments platform! That’s right all you’ll need is 1 point to be able to redeem for these select Moments options.
The very first 1 Point Drop is a Dos Hombres Mezcal Tasting Event with their co-founders Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston at the Downtown L.A. Proper Hotel, a Member of Design Hotels on September 7, 2023. There will be 10 packages available at 1 point each. These will be available on June 14 at 12pm ET. I will assume it is going to be a fight to get one of these packages as they are first come first serve so be sure to set a calendar reminder if this drop interests you! Flights, accommodations, expenses etc are not included.
Marriott Bonvoy has put some rules in place the 1 Point Drops in an attempt to keep them as fair as possible. The primary rule is that a member can only redeem for a 1 Point Drop or 1 Point Auction once per calendar year. So if you are lucky enough to get in on this one you will not be able to redeem for another one until 2024.
Virgin Australia Velocity 1 Point Rewards
Virgin Australia will also be offering 1 Point Rewards with their Velocity program for this month! They will be offering “Hundreds of 1 Point Rewards each week until 2 July 2023. Get international flights, domestic flights, gadgets and more.” Click here to learn more.
To celebrate they have a 1 Point Pop-Up store in Melbourne that will open in just a few hours:
