You can access this offer on Marriott’s website here.

Note that member’s account that receives the points must have been open minimum of 90 days OR 30 if there has been any qualifying activity.

Here’s the price at 25% off:

The price of a point purchased at 25% off is 0.94 cents each.


Marriott Rewards never sold its points at a bonus or discount as long as I was a program member. Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG), however, had frequent sales throughout the years. I always maxed out my SPG point purchases and sometimes also Marriott’s.

Marriott Bonvoy should allow members to purchase at least 100,000 points per calendar year and I feel that the current price is somewhat off too. The good price would be somewhere between 60% to 100% bonus.

It is interesting to see how often Marriott Bonvoy will have these sales and what is the maximum bonus/discount that they offer going forward.

Here are the terms and conditions of this sale:

  • Transactions must be completed between 9:00 AM ET April 15, 2019 and 11:59 PM ET May 15, 2019 to be eligible for the discount.

  • Please allow 24-48 hours for transaction to be completed and points awarded to recipient.

  • You must be a member in good standing to both purchase and receive points.
