Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

LAST DAY: Get a 25% bonus when you buy Marriott Bonvoy points

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Today, Thursday, is the last day to buy Marriott Bonvoy points during their current promotion.

Via this page of the websiteyou will get a 25% bonus on all points purchases.

This is a substantially lower bonus than recent offers, which have tended to be around 40% to 50%. However, if you are planning to make a booking in the next few weeks then it may be the best deal you see.

Marriott has now moved to revenue-based redemptions, although almost all hotels will remain inside their existing high and low price caps. The full force of revenue-based redemptions will not be seen until 2023.

The annual purchase cap has now been permanently raised to 100,000 points.  With the bonus, this means that you could pick up 125,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

At the top end you are paying $1,250 (£1,080) for 125,000 points. My rule of thumb is that a Marriott Bonvoy point is worth 0.5p so this offer is not great at 0.86p per point. 

However, you might find it worthwhile if:

  • you are topping off your account before making a points booking, or
  • you are close to 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points and want to make a transfer into airline miles (you get a bonus of 5,000 airline miles when you transfer 60,000 Bonvoy points into 20,000 airline miles) or
  • you are planning a stay at a property where you know you will get outsized value

The page to buy is here. The offer ends tonight.
