Marriott recently announced their most attractive Marriott Bonvoy points sale promotion yet, a 50% bonus when buying 2000 points or more. The sale is available until March 25, 2020. So, how good is this sale and should you purchase Marriott Bonvoy points?

The 50% bonus applies when purchasing 2000 points or more and translates to 0.833 cents per point, which makes this the best points purchase promotion we have seen from Marriott.  The purchase limit has been doubled from 50,000 to 100,000 for the duration of this promotion. Members can buy or gift up to 50,000 points at a time, with 50% bonus the 75,000 points which would cost $625. Note that points purchased previously count towards the 100k yearly limit.

Given that I redeem mostly at mid-tier Marriott properties, I value Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.7 cents a piece. So obviously I am not going out of my way to purchase points at 0.833 CPP. However, the price is decent if your account could use a quick top-up for an upcoming stay.  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.
