Marriott Rewards has today launched Marriott Rewards MORE that allows members to earn and use points for online purchases with select merchants in the United States, Canada and UK.
Members can earn 1,000 bonus rewards points on their first purchase of $25 or more and can mix and match points and money when paying for purchase with these merchants.
You can access Marriott Rewards MORE here.
Here are the participating merchants:
Usually, the monetary value assigned to airline and hotel points is to low that it makes absolutely no sense to use them for merchandise unless you absolutely have no other use for them and I doubt that it would be any different here.
There are members, however, that earn points far faster than they can ever burn for hotel stays. Then it makes sense to use them for merchandise rewards such as “toasters”.
