As of September 2019, Marriott Bonvoy points are worth approximately $0.007 USD each. This means 1,000 Bonvoy points are worth about $7.00 USD, and 50,000 Bonvoy points are worth about $350.00.
Since guests earn 10 points for each dollar spent at most Marriott brands, before any elite status bonuses, this means you get an effective rebate of 7% — in the form of Bonvoy points — on spending with Marriott. This is around average for a points rebate for a major hotel loyalty program.
Some extended-stay Marriott brands — like Element, Residence Inn, and TownePlace Suites — only earn five points per dollar spent, or a rebate of 3.5%.
Those with either of the two highest elite status levels, Ambassador or Titanium, get a 75% points bonus, meaning they earn an effective rebate of 12.3% on spending with Marriott (excluding the reduced-earnings extended-stay brands). Along with Hilton, this is the highest rebate for top-tier elites among major hotel loyalty programs.
The co-branded American Express Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant Card and the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless both earn six points per dollar spent at Marriott brands and properties and two points per dollar spent on all other purchase (three points per dollar spent on restaurants and flights for the Bonvoy Brilliant).
These credit cards work out to an effective rebate of 4.2% at Marriott and 1.4% on all other purchases (2.1% rebate on restaurants and flights with the Bonvoy Brilliant).
