Marriott is bringing back their lowest points purchase offer, with Marriott Bonvoy 60% bonus on purchase of 2000 points or more – One Week Only! The promotion is valid on all points purchases from now through November 25, 2020. The annual limit is 150,000 points, and includes points previously purchased in 2020, but does not include the 60% bonus points earned with this promotion. Additionally, members that miss out on the 60% bonus, can take advantage of a 50% bonus offer from November 26 through December 22.

So, how good is this 60% bonus promotion and should you purchase Marriott Bonvoy points?

The 60% bonus applies when purchasing 2000 points or more and translates to 0.78 cents (US) per point – lowest rate we have seen for Bonvoy points.  The purchase limit has been tripled from 50,000 to 150,000 for the duration of this promotion. Members can buy or gift up to 150,000 points at a time, with 60% bonus the 240,000 points which would cost $1875. Note that points purchased previously count towards the 150k yearly limit;

240,000 Bonvoy Points for $1875, @0.78 cents per point

Given that I redeem mostly at mid-tier Marriott properties, I value Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.7 cents a piece. 0.78 CPP is darn close and I will definitely be topping up all my accounts at this rate. A quick reminder that Marriott Bonvoy allows points advance booking (up to 5) – earn or purchase the needed points at least 14 days prior to check-in. Bonvoy points also convert to several airline miles at 3:1 ratio, plus a 5k bonus on every 60,000 points converted, equaling 25K airline miles.

If you decide to purchase bonvoy points through this sale, note that the transaction is processed through points.com and will not count as a hotel/travel transaction. Best to use a credit card that gives you a good return on daily spends.
