Best Marriott PointSavers Offer Ever!

Marriott Rewards PointSavers Plus offers a rebate on discounted reward nights using points between September 9, 2009 and January 15, 2010. The title of this post is Marriott’s promotional phrase, not my original superlative phrase.

Register online by January 15, 2010 or call 1-801-468-4000. Stay eligibility is retroactive for PointSaver nights redeemed during the promotional period. You still get the points rebate if you booked a PointSaver stay before signing up for the promotion as long as you register by Jan 15, 2010.

Gold and Platinum Marriott Rewards elites = 15% Point Rebate on PointSaver nights.

All other Marriott Rewards members = 10%

PointSavers are a point discount of one category level for a hotel stay using Marriott Rewards points. A hotel listed as a Category 6 redemption hotel for Marriott Rewards free nights normally costs 30,000 points per night with a 5th night free.

PointSavers reduces the cost of the Category 6 hotel to a Category 5 level for 25,000 points per night with a 5th night free.

Dates and participating PointSaver hotels are variable.

Ritz-Carlton Hotels are available for Pointsavers, however, they are not eligible for this rebate offer.

The table above shows there are some significant savings on Category 6 PointSaver redemptions after the 15% rebate points for Gold and Platinum elites compared to the regular cost for a Marriott Rewards Category 6 Hotel.

Sample Category 6 Hotels Participating in PointSavers:

Chicago – The Blackstone, Renaissance Hotel

November 22-27, 2009

December 17-30, 2009

 

Aruba – Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino

February 1 – December 21, 2009

 

Category 5 Hotels:

Edinburgh Marriott Hotel, Edinburgh, Scotland

January 1 – December 31, 2009

 

Marriott Druids Glen, Ireland

January 1 – December 31, 2009

 

 

There are a couple of interesting terms and conditions for the PointSavers Rebate:

*Your membership year elite level will be determined by your December 31, 2009 qualification level. This means you could be Silver elite at the time you redeem PointSaver awards and receive a 15% point rebate in January if your membership level is Gold by December 31, 2009.

*A rebate can be earned on a multi-room stay if Marriott Rewards account is associated with the stay.

Either you currently have Marriott Rewards points or you don’t. This is actually a clever incentive for increasing hotel stay and points earning activity with Marriott Rewards for the remainder of the year. Activities like shopping through Marriott Rewards web shopping portal, activating or using a Marriott Rewards credit card, and hotel stays will boost your account balance. Since this is a rebate promotion you will need the full amount of points required for the PointSavers award nights. The rebate of points based on your Dec 31, 2009 elite qualification will happen sometime in January through March 2010.

1,250 DC points = 1,500 Marriott rewards points
