Marriott Bonvoy has returned in 2021 with another “Week of Wonders”.
One of the interesting offers is available to members with elite status. Elite members can buy points with a 55% bonus between now and October 14, 2021.
You must buy a minimum of 2,000 points to earn the 55% bonus. When you pay $25 to purchase 3,100 points, you are paying 0.8 cents per point.
In 2021, we’ve seen Marriott’s bonuses fluctuate between 40 and 50%. So 55% is a bit higher than we’ve seen this year, although I recall a 60% bonus from a year or two ago…
Don’t Forget Cashback
If you are a member of Topcashback, you are hopefully aware that you can earn cashback on points purchases processed by Points.com. (including Marriott of course)
An extra 2.5% discount is certainly worth the extra click.
Not a Member of Topcashback Yet?
If you are not yet a member of Topcashback, you can earn an additional $15. Simply sign up using this referral link – http://www.topcashback.com/join-us/inside-flyer/ref/craigsowerby – and earn $10 of cashback.
It’s really quite simple to earn $10 of cashback. You would have to buy $400 worth of Marriott points to pick up $10 of cashback. Alternatively there are many hotel chains available where a single hotel stay will generate that much cashback. But between the $15 new member bonus and the $10 standard cashback, you’d be looking at $25 back in your pocket in no time!
