Earn 20x On Home Rentals When You Book Through Marriott February 9-11

Marriott says they’ll be offering 20 Bonvoy points per dollar on bookings made through their Homes & Villas by Marriott International site from February 9th to February 11th. That’s four times the usual number of points.

These bookings qualify as Marriott spend for bonus earnings with their cobrand card (6 points per dollar) but in general you’re better off earning 3+ points per dollar with a transferrable currency.

Since I value Marriott points at 60 basis points, 20 Marriott points per dollar works out to a 12% rebate. If you earn 3 Chase points per dollar on the booking (perhaps 175 basis points each) you can wind up with over 17% back on homeshares booked through Marriott’s portal during this three day period.

You should always comparison shop as Marriott may not offer the best deal. I’ve found similar-priced properties on other vacation rental sites that offered better locations, for instance. And if you have Wyndham points compare redeeming 15,000 points per bedroom per night for what may be the same property (if the particular Marriott home rental you’re looking at is sourced through Vacasa).

  2. Stop saying freedom of speech is just for the government, it’s a value all decent societies should live by, just because a private business is not forced to abide by it, doesn’t mean they get a moral pass for dispensing with it

  3. Let’s not forget points are owned by Marriott not the customer so earning so many bonus points is enriching a company that is our best defense against the unconscionablility of Airbnb

  4. had a $200 off $1000 purchase on my amex offers for this also. Still, not that many great deals here.
