Marriott Bonvoy is selling points at 30% discount from Sep 14 to Oct 18, 2019 when you buy 2,000 or more points. The purchase limit has been raised from 50,000 points to 100,000 points during this promotion.

Normally Marriott Bonvoy points cost $12.50 per 1,000 points and this offer drops the price down to $8.75 per 1,000 points.

Basically you can buy 100,000 points for $875 if you have a need for more points and have not purchased points before in 2019.

Save 30% when buying 2,000 or more points = $8.75 per 1,000 points.

While some Marriott Bonvoy members will find this offer distasteful after the introduction of peak season reward rates Sep 14, I am quite pleased to see this offer in conjunction with off-season rates for some hotels where I see good value deals.

AC Hotel Valencia, Spain – Marriott Bonvoy Category 1 hotel.

Nov 21-26, 2019 off-season rates at 5,000 points per night.

New off-season rates reduce this hotel from 7,500 points to 5,000 points per night on off-season dates. This makes a 5-night stay drop down to 20,000 points for some dates with the 5th night free reward option.

Buying 20,000 points is only $175 during this sale. This drops the nightly room rate for AC Hotel Valencia to $35 per night.

Plus no tax on a reward stay.

 

This hotel is available at Marriott Bonvoy off-season points price for 4,000 points per night for a 5-night stay at $175 all in for November compared to the similar flexible cancellation paid rate of 571 EUR / $637 after tax for the 5-night stay. Paying $35 using Marriott Bonvoy points instead of spending $127 per night for the flexible cash rate is the kind of hotel loyalty program deal that keeps me loyal.

  1. Hi Ric

    I only see 50k as the maximum points in the dropdown, does that mean we need to buy 50k twice to get the 100k?
