Marriott Bonvoy Week Of Wonders Promotion

Marriott Bonvoy Week Of Wonders Promotion

3

Marriott Bonvoy has brought back its Week of Wonders promotion. Don’t get too excited, though…

The basics of Marriott’s Week of Wonders

Marriott Bonvoy Week of Wonders runs from October 6 through October 13, 2022, so it’s live for the next week. As it’s described, this is intended “to satisfy wanderlust with exclusive offers, opportunities for discounts on room rates, options to earn bonus points towards free stays, and capabilities to redeem incredible experiences through Marriott Bonvoy Moments.”

So, what kinds of offers are we seeing over the coming week?

My take on Marriott’s Week of Wonders promotion

Is there any value in Week of Wonders? Well, we’re all different, so it depends who you ask. Personally I find the execution of this promotion to be pretty disappointing, as it’s clearly about quantity rather than quality. It seems like Marriott is really grasping at straws:

  • Marriott’s existing global promotion is being marketed as part of Week of Wonders, even though it’s nothing new
  • Maybe it’s just me, but I have a hard time getting excited about 35% off candles; Marriott couldn’t even offer discounts on more boutique items?
  • Marriott Bonvoy is offering up to 15% off award stays at select properties, though you have to stay by the end of October; the execution of this seems supremely stingy, not to mention you don’t know if you’re saving anything, since Marriott has dynamic award pricing
  • Marriott Bonvoy has a points sale, where you can buy points with a 50% bonus, which is an opportunity to acquire them for 0.83 cents each; that’s probably the best value of the bunch, but then again, Marriott offers promotions on buying points throughout the year, so this isn’t that special
Save 15% off select awards (but act fast!)

Bottom line

Marriott Bonvoy Week of Wonders is back, offering a variety of promotions for Bonvoy members. Most of these aren’t anything to get too excited about, in my opinion. However, some may appreciate the opportunity to save on points redemptions (for stays in the near future), or to buy points at a discount.

This promotion is very much getting into “why even bother?” territory, if you ask me.

Are there any Marriott Week of Wonders promotions you’re excited about?

    When I try to register to earn the 2k bonus points, it says I am not eligible for this promotion. I do get Marriott points, not miles. Anyone else seeing this?

    It's rare that these posts ring my bell just right, but today it sure did. I'm scheduled to go to Cancun later this month to burn four 50k certs that expire end of year, and the rate went from 55k points/night to 45k points/night, effectively saving me the 20k points overage. Canceled and rebooked and couldn't be happier. Thanks, Lucky!
