The much talked about Marriott Bonvoy points sale is now live, with 60% bonus when buying 2000 points or more. This is the highest bonus promotion from Marriott and will be applicable on all transactions completed between 9:00 AM ET May 18, 2020 and 11:59 PM ET June 30, 2020.
Marriott Bonvoy Points Sale – 60% Bonus
The 60% bonus brings the selling points to 0.78 cents per point, which makes this the best points purchase promotion we have seen from Marriott. Although members can purchase 50,000 points in each transaction, the purchase limit has been doubled to 100,000 for the duration of this promotion. Members can buy or gift up to 50,000 points at a time. Note that points purchased previously count towards the 100k yearly limit. The points purchase will be processed by points.com and not Marriott directly, it would be best to use a credit card that earns the most on everyday spend.
Given that I redeem mostly at mid-tier Marriott properties, I value Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.7 cents a piece. At 0.78 cents a piece, I will definitely be topping up our household accounts. A quick reminder that Marriott Bonvoy allows points advance booking (up to 5) as long as the required points are in the account 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.
