Marriott Bonvoy is offering a bonus of up to 50% when you purchase Marriott Bonvoy points through July 24, 2024.

This offer is targeted and will vary based on your account, but it likely won’t make sense for most people unless you get a big bonus, need to top off your account, or have a specific redemption in mind.

Let’s take a look at the details.

Get up to a 50% Bonus When Purchasing Marriott Bonvoy Points

Typically, purchasing Marriott Bonvoy points does not come with any bonus or discount — you pay for a specific amount of points and receive that set number of points.

However, this offer allows you to receive up to a 50% bonus on the amount of points you purchase, which is better than no discount. The standard rate for purchasing points is $12.50 for every 1,000 points.

Our team is currently seeing bonuses from 25% to 50%, so check your account(s) before making a decision.

To purchase Marriott Bonvoy points with the bonus, you must do so before July 24, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. EST. There is a 2,000-point minimum for buying if you want to receive the bonus, and you’re only allowed to purchase up to 100,000 points annually before any bonus points.

If you are targeted for the 50% bonus points, you would be getting each point for 0.83 cents apiece through this sale, greater than our estimated valuations of Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.7 cents apiece. It’s also worth noting that if you’re a new Marriott Bonvoy member, you must wait 30 days from account opening to purchase any points.

No bonus categories are associated with purchasing points using a specific credit card. Instead, you should opt for a credit card that offers a decent bonus on everyday spending. However, remember that using a Marriott Bonvoy credit card won’t earn you any additional Marriott Bonvoy points.

Hot Tip:

Remember that the best ways to earn Marriott Bonvoy points are by staying at a Marriott-branded property or utilizing a Marriott Bonvoy co-branded credit card. Purchasing points is one of the most expensive ways to earn points, and it comes at a high cost, even with various promotions and bonuses.

Final Thoughts

Buying Marriott Bonvoy points, even with a bonus of up to 50%, is expensive and should only be done in the most limited of circumstances. You may wish to purchase points to top-up your account for an upcoming redemption or compare the cash rate of a particular stay to purchasing the total amount of award points needed to cover that stay.
