The Marriott Bonvoy has a promotion. Don't get too excited.

The basics of Marriott’s Week of Wonders

The Marriott Bonvoy Week of Wonders runs from October 6 to October 13, 2022. This is intended to satisfy travelers 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.

My take on Marriott’s Week of Wonders promotion

There is no value in Week of Wonders. It depends on who you ask. The execution of this promotion is disappointing as it seems like it is about quantity rather than quality. Marriott is 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 offers a variety of promotions. I don't think most of these are exciting things to get excited about. Some may appreciate the chance to save on points redemptions or to buy points at a discount.

If you ask me, this promotion is getting into something called "Why even bother?"
