Better Know a Reward: Marriott PointSavers

Marriott Rewards PointSavers discount the cost of a reward night by one category level. For example, a category 6 hotel at 30,000 points is only 25,000 points for a PointSavers reward night. The number of participating hotels in the current PointSavers list is disappointly low with fewer than 50 of 3,600 hotels worldwide offering a PointSavers discount.

Ritz-Carlton Hotels participate in PointSavers, but since the creation of Ritz-Carlton Rewards in 2010 there have been very few Ritz-Carlton Hotels posted on PointSavers.

Each participating property has its own date availability calendar in the same way Hilton HHonors PointStretchers designate specific dates for hotels.
