Update: This is a reminder that today (October 15) is the last day to book Bonvoy awards at off-peak prices for stays through November 30, 2020. This is part of a promotion that was launched a week ago. You can find all the details in the below post, which was originally published on October 8.

Marriott Bonvoy has just launched a “Week of Wonders” promotion, which is described as a “week of awe-inspiring experiences and offers.” There are indeed a few promotions associated with this, and one in particular that members may find beneficial.

Book all Bonvoy hotels at off-peak pricing

To me (and I suspect most members), this is the most exciting part of this promotion. Marriott Bonvoy has three tiers of award pricing at hotels — off-peak, standard, and peak. As a reminder, here’s what that pricing looks like by category:

With this promotion, Marriott will exclusively have off-peak pricing at all properties:

  • This is valid for bookings between October 8 and October 15, 2020
  • This is valid for stays through November 30, 2020

Since peak and off-peak pricing is supposed to be demand driven you’d assume most properties would already be off-peak. However, as members are finding, that’s often not the case. This is an awesome promotion for anyone looking to travel soon.

With this, even Marriott’s most expensive properties cost just 70,000 points per night, or an average of 56,000 points per night factoring in a fifth night free.

Other Week of Wonders promotions

There are some other deals to be had during this promotion, but they are more niche. Here’s a quick summary of them:

  • Get 30% off purchases at Marriott Bonvoy Boutiques, on items ranging from The Westin Heavenly Bed, to The Ritz-Carlton Fragrance Collection, to EDITION Hotels Le Labo amenities
  • Marriott Bonvoy Escapes will be offering 25% off paid hotel stays, though don’t necessarily expect this to offer a 25% discount over what’s otherwise the best available rate
  • Earn a Marriott free night certificate when you book a Homes & Villa by Marriott stay of at least three nights between October 8 and December 31, 2020

This is all in addition to a couple of other Marriott promos that have been running before this one started:

Bottom line

Marriott is offering a series of promotions for Bonvoy members this week. The most exciting promotion is that all hotels booked with points in the next week will price at the off-peak level, for stays through November 30, 2020. This could be worth taking advantage of for any future travel, and you could even use this to rebook existing travel.

On top of that you can save 30% off anything from one of Marriott’s hotel stores, including signature beds.

Will you be taking advantage of this Marriott promotion?

  1. Marriott clearly wants to encourage more bookings for the end of the year but would have been much temping if this extended into 2021.

  2. Nice. I had a booking at St. Regis Maldives for end of October for 5 nights at 100k miles/night… This then got changed to 355k (2 October dates became standard while November dates stayed as peak). Now, it’s 280k saving me 75k miles. Perfect timing. Website is giving me an error changing it now though.

  3. this doesn’t seem to be at all properties … st. regis SF is showing regular pricing over xmas, not off-peak

  4. @Goldberg
    “Not a single Hotel available in UAE in January?”

    You need to read the article again. Hint..the promotion is only valid for stays until end of November.

  5. Hello, I currently have a award night booked at peak season “pricing” 40000 points, however, now they are out of availability for booking with points, if I cancel my 40000 points reservation, will my room be released and I can immediately book it at off peak rate for 30000, or will my cancelled room not be available for rebooking for points anymore?

  6. Thanks for posting this! I cancelled my upcoming stay, rebooked, AND upgraded and still have 12,000 more points than before!

  7. @Eddie Chen

    Yes, cancelled my bookings and got the points back immediately. I was able to rebook right after.

  8. If November should’ve been off peak already, how is this amazing. The fact that Marriott stop lying to us for a week?

    The way they implemented high and low season, where most weekends are high season, was deceptive. Call it like it is not, like the marketing department says

  9. @ Beachfan — I agree with you, though I don’t think I called it “amazing,” or view it as such. The reality, though, is that I saved a significant number of points thanks to this promotion, and I know many others did as well, so…
