2019 Year-End Marriott Bonvoy Promotion

This year we’ve seen one Marriott Bonvoy promotion after another, the first in the early spring and the next one a few months later in the autumn. It seems the hotel loyalty program is not through just yet as they are back for one more deal… with a pleasant bonus.

Marriott Bonvoy Promotion on Points

Until December 22nd, members can save 30% off the purchase price when buying at least 2000 Bonvoy points. Open the purchase page, enter your particulars, and you should find something like this:

Marriott Bonvoy Promotion for Points Purchases

You can buy Bonvoy (formerly Marriott Rewards) points in blocks of a thousand for $12.50 each. Normally you can only grab as much as 50,000 points in a calendar year, but for this promotion they are doubling the annual purchase limit to 100,000.

With this deal, you pay 0.875 cents per Bonvoy point, which is decent point value. We don’t recommend this for impulse or speculative buying, but it’s good for extending points validity (at just 2000 for $17.50) — aside from topping up for a planned stay, of course.

Note that only member accounts are at least 90 days old can take advantage of this deal, or at least just 30 days if the account has a past qualifying activity (such as a stay).

Just note that points purchased should come about 24 to 48 hours after the transaction has been completed. Also, points bought do not count towards status.


Final Word

This latest deal still seems to be in line with similar deals, even compared to past SPG promotions before they finished a merger with Marriott.

But if you’re in the market for a hotel redemption or your points validity need some renewing, this would be just right for you. Here’s to your happy hotel holiday stay!
