LAST CALL: Marriott Bonvoy Buy & Gift Points 50% Bonus Until October 22, 2020

Marriott Bonvoy launched a month ago an offer to buy points with a bonus and an increased limit that ends this Thursday (October 22, 2020).

Members get a 50% bonus (previously max 60%) on points purchased or gifted. The number of points that a member can buy or gifted in any calendar year is capped at 50,000, which is tripled to 150,000 (225,000 with the bonus) for this sale duration.

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

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

You no longer need to make separate purchases if you would like to buy more than 50,000 points.

Here’s the price at a 50% bonus:

The cost of a point purchased at a 50% bonus (you get 225,000 for $1,875) is 0.83 cents each.

Conclusion

The bonus during the previous sale this summer was 60% (the highest that Marriott has ever offered), and it is likely to return at some point.

Many hotels are at their lowest point requirements right now, making them a good opportunity for awards at expensive destinations with no meaningful discounting such as Japan.
