Quick thoughts

The first thing I should point out is that there’s an Amex offer still available which should stack well with this latest bonus points promotion (details):

As far as the bonus points offer goes, it’s pretty straightforward.

The bonus points that Marriott is offering aren’t part of a targeted deal and there’s no requirement for a guest to register before they can earn the bonus points so anyone meeting the promotion’s terms and conditions (minimum spend, minimum stay, etc..) and consuming a Homes & Villas stay by 31 January 2023 should find themselves 10,000 points better off.

Clearly, Homes & Villas stays will vary widely in cost depending on, among other things, the nature of the home/villa that’s being rented, the location of the rental, and on the number of nights being consumed so the savings and points on offer will be different for just about everyone.

However, to give you an idea of what these promotions can offer, here’s what a Bonvoy member can earn on an example stay:

Assumptions

Points Earnings

  • Homes & Villas earnings at 5 points/dollar – 12,500 Bonvoy Points
  • Marriott Platinum Elite bonus points at 50% – 6,250 Bonvoy Points
  • Marriott Homes & Villas promotion – 10,000 Bonvoy Points
  • Marriott Bonvoy credit card earnings at 6 points/dollar – 15,000 Bonvoy Points

Total points earnings = 43,750 Bonvoy Points

On their own, 43,750 Bonvoy Points are not enough to book a high-end stay, but as I currently value Bonvoy Points at 0.6 cents each* (based on the value that I can get out of them with relative ease), I still consider them to be worth ~$262.

That’s not a bad effective rebate to be given and if you can factor in a further $100 saving from the Amex offer (you’d have to make a last minute booking to do so), that rebate would increase to a very worthwhile $362.

*I expect to be lowering my value of Marriott Bonvoy points when the full effect of Marriott’s move to dynamic pricing becomes apparent in early 2023.

Bottom line

Marriott’s Homes & Villas program is running an 8-day promotion in which its offering 10,000 bonus points for select stays made by the end of January 2023. The promo isn’t good enough to warrant  going out and making a booking that you weren’t already considering, but bonus points are always good to have and if you can stack this with the targeted Amex offer, so much the better.
