Marriott Terms & Conditions Change In Regards To Buying/Gifting Points

Marriott Rewards added one line of text to its terms and conditions to clarify the number of points that you earn for buying Marriott points online:


You won’t earn Marriott spend bonus for purchasing points online and paying using Marriott branded credit card, as the purchase is handled by third party vendor

You will continue to earn Marriott credit card related spend bonus for purchasing Marriott gift cards from Marriott, as those purchases are coded as coming from Marriott.


There must have been people complaining for not earning the 5 Marriott points per dollar spend for purchasing or gifting Marriott points online.
