Why You Should Wait Before Considering Marriott’s Mystery Bonus Promotion

Marriott Bonvoy has announced details of its latest “buy points” promotion. It will run until September 25th, 2021.

The promotion is pretty simple. If you buy 2,000+ points, you will receive a mystery bonus. Luckily, the bonus is revealed before you make the purchase. But most reports suggest that members are receiving 40, 45 or 50% bonuses. My account received the 45% bonus…

Marriott’s most frequent promotion offers a 50% bonus. Therefore, you should definitely ignore this promotion if your personal mystery bonus is lower than 50%.

However, there is one possible exception…
