Marriott Rewards PointSavers Frequently Asked Questions

The worldwide PointSavers program is an exclusive special offer created just for Marriott Rewards members. PointSavers allows members to stay in highly desirable locations for fewer Marriott Rewards points.

What type of value does PointSavers provide?

The PointSavers value is exceptional. Members may receive up to a 33% savings on point redemptions depending on the hotel category and number of nights requested.

Locations participating in PointSavers are discounted by one category in Marriott Rewards point requirements.*

For example, members can stay in a Category 5 hotel while redeeming points for a Category 4 hotel. So, to stay at a Category 5 hotel for two nights at a standard redemption would require 50,000 Marriott Rewards points. The same stay with PointSavers would be 40,000 points or a 20% savings.

*Category 1 hotels point requirements are discounted by 20%.
