Marriott Rewards has now launched Experiences Marketplace where members can use their points for “once-in-a-lifetime” and other events such as Hamilton tickets.
Seems that, unlike with Hilton HHonors and SPG, Marriott Rewards experiences are only available at a fixed (usually rather high) rate. These really only make sense if you have way more points that you can burn and there is something truly unique
You can access the Marriott Rewards Experiences Marketplace here.
Here are the categories and some of he Experiences available right now:
Rather steep price for couple of tickets and pizza for two.
I have yet to take advantage of these experiences with any program but I do have friends that have enjoyed the SPG Moments. There have been sometimes hard to get concert tickets at very reasonable rate using Starpoints.
Marriott Rewards just started this and let’s hope that they soon have wider selection at better point values.
