Buy Marriott Bonvoy points with a bonus

*** Update March 24, 2022: Originally, the deadline for this promotion was March 23. It has been extended until April 03, 2022.

A minimum of 2,000 points will need to be purchased to take advantage of this Marriott Bonvoy promotion.

For example, if you want to buy 100,000 points, it will cost you US$1,250. With a 50% bonus, you get an additional 50,000 points, which works out to 0.83 US cents per point.

The conditions are as follows:

  • You can purchase up to 100,000 points
  • Points that have already been purchased or received as gifts in 2022 are included in the 100,000 point purchase limit
  • Bonus points earned in this promotion are not included in the annual limit
  • Points purchased do not count towards Marriott Bonvoy Elite status
  • Point purchases will be processed within 72 hours of the transaction
  • New Members may purchase points thirty (30) days after joining the Marriott Bonvoy program
Save on FX-fee

The transaction is in U.S. dollars and is not considered as a Marriott purchase (so you won’t earn 5 points per dollar with a Marriott Bonvoy credit card).

We recommend using a card that does not charge a foreign currency conversion fee such as the HSBC World Elite® Mastercard®.

You will save 2.5% on that transaction!

Buying Marriott Bonvoy points will be useful for topping up an existing points balance and if you have a specific redemption in mind. For example, in a luxury hotel such as the Al Maha, a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa, Dubai or the Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection in Crete.

For example, for 150,000 points, you could get up to 2 nights at Al Maha, a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa, Dubai. This is surely the best hotel to book before March 2022 and the disappearance of the categories ! There are still some dates left at 70,000 points during the summer of 2022.

Each points booking at this hotel includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, room service (excluding alcohol) and two activities per day!

Here’s an example of a 70,000 point night instead of $2,314 CAD :

Aside from buying points, there are two ways to get Marriott Bonvoy points:

How do I get Marriott Bonvoy points in Canada?

For Canadians, it’s pretty easy to earn Marriott Bonvoy points.

Indeed, there are two Marriott Bonvoy branded-credit cards and each offer a significant welcome bonus:

With those cards, you earn between 2 and 5 Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar for your purchases.

It is also possible to earn Marriott Bonvoy points by transferring American Express Membership Rewards points from these 7 cards:

Our favourite is the American Express Cobalt™ Card.

It allows you to accumulate 5x points for everyday expenses such as groceries, convenience store purchases, restaurants, bars and home food deliveries.

If you convert your points to Marriott Bonvoy, it’s like earning6 Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar on those purchases. That’s exceptional!

Conclusion

Buying Marriott Bonvoy can be interesting for some people. This can be for a specific travel purpose and/or to top up a points balance for a free night or stay.

But if you are not in one of these situations, we do not recommend buying points. Indeed, it will be more beneficial to earn Marriott Bonvoy points directly or indirectly with a credit card.

This promotion is more interesting than last November’s. At that time, the bonus was up to 45 %.

Also, this is probably the last one before the categories disappear next March. By the way, we do not know yet the official date of this disappearance.
