Marriott Bonvoy points can save a lot of money for your travel. Depending on the destination, you can get one or more free hotel nights with points.

Here are several tips to know before finding out what these points can offer you in this destination.

Earn Marriott Bonvoy points in Canada

Credit card sign-up bonuses

Marriott Bonvoy partners with American Express in Canada by issuing two Marriott Bonvoy credit cards (one for consumers and one for SMEs).

By signing up for the Marriott Bonvoy® American Express®* Card, you can earn 50,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

If you also sign up for the Marriott Bonvoy® Business American Express®* Card, you could also earn 50,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

That’s up to 100,000 Marriott Bonvoy points with both credit cards.

If you are a couple – or with a travel companion – you can earn between 100,000 and 200,000 Marriott Bonvoy points!

Point transfers

You can also transfer points to Marriott Bonvoy from one of these seven American Express Membership Rewards Cards:

The transfer rate is 1:1.2 (or 5:6). This means that if you transfer 10,000 Membership Rewards points, you will receive 12,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

Transfer up to 100,000 points per year

Each year, you can transfer up to 100,000 Marriott Bonvoy points for free from one Marriott Bonvoy account to another. It is a convenient method to book hotel nights from a single account to:

  • Combine points earned on a spouse or a travel buddy’s Marriott Bonvoy credit cards.
  • benefit from the other member’s Marriott Bonvoy Elite status
  • Earn Elite nights for renewal of a status
  • Book hotel nights with points by taking advantage of the Stay for 5, Pay for 4 policy

Stay for 5, Pay for 4 Policy

By using your Marriott Bonvoy points, you can take advantage of the Stay for 5, Pay for 4 Policy.

With this benefit, you save about 20% of the price of your reservation: you use fewer points to stay longer!

Bali and Marriott Bonvoy

Now that you know the main tips about earning and redeeming Marriott Bonvoy points, let’s look at the good deals at this destination.

Bali has nearly 30 Marriott Bonvoy properties. For the purposes of this article, we will focus on properties that are available between 5,000 and 20,000 points per night.

Hotel Points per night
Fairfield by Marriott Bali Legian 5K-10K
Four Points by Sheraton Bali, Ungasan 5K-10K
Element by Westin Bali Ubud 10K-15K
Fairfield by Marriott Bali Kuta Sunset Road 10K-15K
Four Points by Sheraton Bali – Kuta 15K-20K
Sthala – a Tribute Portfolio Hotel – Ubud Bali 15K-20K
The Westin Resort & Spa Ubud, Bali 15K-20K

Here’s how much a 10-night stay in one of these hotels would cost in points:

  • Hotels from 5,000 points: between 40,000 and 80,000 points
  • Hotels from 10,000 points: between 80,000 and 120,000 points
  • Hotels from 15,000 points: between 120,000 and 160,000 points
  • Hotels from 20,000 points: between 160,000 and 240,000 points

You can easily earn these points when applying for the Marriott Bonvoy® American Express®* Card or the Marriott Bonvoy® Business American Express®* Card.

So, with the welcome bonus from a single credit card, you could get about 12 free nights at a hotel costing 5,000 points per night:

Night Points Night Points
1 5 000 7 5 000
2 5 000 8 5 000
3 5 000 9 5 000
4 5 000 10 Free
5 Free 11 5 000
6 5 000 12 5 000

12-night stay = from 50,000 points!

If you are a couple or with a friend (OR if you sign up for both Marriott Bonvoy credit cards) that’s almost 24 free nights!

Audrey and I stayed with our two children in several of these hotels during our round-the-world tour: as you will see below, they arecomfortable hotels and particularly well located.

For example, a 5-night consecutive stay in January 2023 at the Fairfield by Marriott Bali Legian costs only 22,000 points (or 4,400 points per night) :

With the current welcome offer, you could treat yourself to nearly 3 such stays! And up to 6 stays of 5 nights when applying for both cards. That way, you can switch hotels and locations on the island.

And if you’re a couple or two travelling companions, by applying for both cards, you could earn up to 200,000 points. At 4,400 points per night, that would give you up to 45 nights.

This is an extreme case, but it shows you what can be done with Marriott Bonvoy points.

Enough to spend the winter under the sun of Bali as a nomadic worker!
