Annoying: Marriott Has Made Suite Night Awards Officially Harder & More Expensive To Use

While programs like Hilton Honors, the World of Hyatt and even IHG Rewards have all been running year-end promotions for some time, Marriott Bonvoy has only just announced its offer for the last few weeks of the year (and the first two weeks of next year) and it really wasn't worth waiting for.

In August Marriott finally gave us some long-awaited news about the new Marriott Bonvoy program and amongst the changes announced was a change to the way Marriott's very useful Points Advance program works.

Marriott Bonvoy Introduces Dynamic Award Pricing (Sort Of)

The introduction of seasonal pricing finally came into effect at Marriott Bonvoy over the weekend but, now that we can see how it's going to work, it's safe to say that what we've been given isn't what most people were expecting.

American Express Membership Rewards offers transfers to just three hotel loyalty programs and one of these is Marriott Bonvoy.
