Marriott PointSavers deals can be a great way to score your next Marriott Bonvoy reward night for less, but participating locations are limited. You’ll have to keep a close eye on these rotating offers to save big.
In addition to luxury perks, Marriott Bonvoy members can take advantage of PointSavers – a program designed to offer rewards nights for less.
What is Marriott PointSavers?
PointSavers is Marriott Bonvoy’s rotating savings program on reward night stays. Every week, participating locations are updated to offers savings at Marriott Bonvoy locations around the world.
Eligible hotels change often and might be limited based on the time of year, but the exact savings remains the same based on the property’s tier in the Marriott rewards night pricing chart. Right now, PointSavers rewards nights have a flat price based on the category the property falls under, but coming soon they will follow peak and off-peak dates.
How to book a PointSavers stay
Luckily, Marriott PointSavers deals are easy to take advantage of. To book a stay at the PointSavers rate, first check the PointSavers landing page for current participating locations. Then, you can use the search feature on the page or on Marriott Bonvoy’s normal site to search during an eligible date period at a participating property.
Whichever way you search, you’ll see all the hotel results that fall under your specifications, so you’ll have to find the savings yourself. If you don’t remember all the participating locations, you can look for a discount at the bottom of the listing.
Once you find a deal that works for you, you finish booking your stay as normal.
How much can you save with PointSavers deals?
Unfortunately, PointSavers deals aren’t the biggest hotel savings you can find – and you can’t find better deals on particular hotels. Instead, you’ll save the same amount on each participating location in the same category, as defined below.
|Hotel category||PointSavers cost (points)||Standard cost (points)||Savings|
As you can see, you can save the most points when booking a lower-tier Marriott Bonvoy property. In fact, the savings on the highest-tier locations are minimal.
These savings don’t seem super impressive, but the added value comes when you combine one of these deals with Marriott’s fifth night free perk. With this benefit, you can get the fifth night free on stays of five nights or longer when you use points for the first four nights. You have to save up quite a few points to take advantage of this option, but it means you can take your next trip for less.
Restrictions with Marriott PointSavers
PointSavers promotions are relatively easy to use, but there are a few drawbacks to keep in mind. The biggest downside is that participating locations and available dates tend to be very limited. In fact, at the time of writing this article, there were only 18 participating hotels in the U.S. and one internationally.
In addition, rewards night stays are often limited to one type of room – whatever is defined by the hotel as standard. This means you can’t boost your savings by opting for a better room.
Tips for maximizing PointSavers
- Check the PointSavers landing page regularly for new participating locations.
- Stockpile your points to combine a PointSavers deal with a fifth night free to maximize savings.
- Opt for PointSavers deals at category 1 properties as they have the best rate.
- Keep a close eye on eligible dates at each property. You might need to be flexible on travel dates to take advantage of an offer.
While not the most drastic savings you can find on a hotel stay, Marriott PointSavers deals are a great way to take your next trip for a bit less. If you are already a Marriott Bonvoy loyalist, be sure to check out the program’s website regularly to see if your dream destination is offering a discount.
