Is this a good deal to buy Marriott points?

Members can receive incredible value for their points by redeeming them for โ€œsweet spotsโ€ that are shared below, as well as on nights when the hotel’s cash rate is high.

  1. I just checked the Bonvoy site from your link. Bonus pts is only 30%. Mayb it’s related to your level of membership? Thx

    • Hey, as this May 2023 offer is targeted, members receive different bonus amount, up to 50%. Not sure if it is related to each member’s membership level though.
