Marriott Bonvoy Shopping Points

The conditions are as follows:

  • You can buy up to 100,000 points (base)
  • 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

Please note: The purchase is made through an external site to Marriott Bonvoy. This will not count toward a 5-point-per-dollar purchase or a travel expense.

Therefore, you’ll earn 2x the points per dollar if you buy Marriott Bonvoy points with a Marriott Bonvoy credit card.

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.

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.

The last points purchase promotion ended on July 15. It consisted of a bonus ranging from 30% to 55%, depending on your profile. So, if you can, wait until next fall’s promotion.
