One of the ongoing Marriott promotions and hopefully a program to be continued under Marriott’s Bonvoy rewards brand is called PointSavers. This discount program lets rewards members book select hotel properties for less than the standard award rate.

Let’s get one thing out of the way up front: the deals aren’t mind blowing. Discounts aren’t going to be more than 5,000 points per night on the high end of the award chart or 20% on the low end. However, a little savings can still go a long way, especially if you’re booking more than one or two nights and combining with a fifth night free award stay.

Category PointSavers Standard Savings % Savings
1 6,000 7,500 1,500 20%
2 11,000 12,500 1,500 12%
3 16,000 17,500 1,500 9%
4 22,500 25,000 2,500 10%
5 32,500 35,000 2,500 7%
6 45,000 50,000 5,000 10%
7 55,000 60,000 5,000 8%
8 80,000 85,000 5,000 6%

The other thing to keep in mind is that properties are usually added one at a time and for date ranges that don’t match up with the other discounted hotels. Here’s a round-up of some of the current offers that are available at through the end of April and beyond. You you can visit Marriott’s Pointsavers page to view all properties that are currently discounted. 

JW Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro

  • Dates: now through April 10, 22, 27, 30; May 9-20, 27-28, 31; June 1-2, 8-13; July 8-14, 16, 18-19, 21-31; August 4-15, 23, 30-31; September 1-22, 27-30; October 1-3, 7-31; November 1-18, 20-30; December 1-15, 17-27
  • Standard Rate: 35,000 points per night
  • Discounted Rate: 32,500 points per night

Although this property isn’t listed on the Marriott PointSavers website, it’s showing up at a discount when you search award nights on the hotel’s website. Located on iconic Copacabana Beach, this ultra-luxurious JW Marriott already seems like a solid deal at 35,000 points per night — until you check cash prices and see that there are nights available from $141 per night. So, make sure to check cash prices for your dates to make sure that you’re getting a good deal from your points.

Great Northern Hotel, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel, London

  • Dates: now through December 31, 2019
  • Standard Rate: 50,000 points per night
  • Discounted Rate: 45,000 points per night

While most properties are only on the list for a few months at a time, this Tribute Portfolio hotel property is on the list through the end of 2019. If you thought this would mean that the hotel would’ve dropped a category on March 5, you’d be incorrect. Strangely, the hotel will remain a Category 6 hotel.

However, there’s a reason to hurry up and book your stay. While the hotel isn’t changing categories, Peak/Off Peak pricing is going to go into effect sometime in 2019. If it goes into effect in the next few months, you can bet that summer will be a peak time for a London hotel. The new Category 6 Peak PointSavers price is 55,000 per night and that could kick in anytime. So, you’ll might as well book the hotel for your summer trip to London now:

Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center

  • Dates: April 10-13, 17, 21-22, 26-28; May 2-4, 15-16, 19, 22-24; June 1, 5, 15, 20-21, 26-27; July 2-7, 23-30; August 9-14, 18-23, 27-31; September 1-6, 11-13; November 24-29; December 18-25, 29-30, 2019
  • Standard Rate: 35,000 points per night
  • Discounted Rate: 32,500 points per night

Just south of Washington DC on the banks of the Potomac River, the Gaylord National Resort is striking distance from the nation’s capital while also being a mini-destination in itself — complete with a Ferris wheel right outside the grand hotel.

While the discount isn’t much, it could be worth picking discounted dates, especially for longer stays. Dates are pretty scattered, and — strangely — the discounts are available more on holiday periods than non-holiday periods. You can visit DC area around the 4th of July:

Or there’s solid availability at the end of July and into August:

Marriott’s Legends Edge at Bay Point

  • Dates: now through December 31, 2019
  • Standard Rate: 35,000 points per night
  • Discounted Rate: 32,500 points per night

Just in time for summer vacation, this Marriott Vacation Club property in Panama City Florida has been added to PointSavers through the end of the year. And this is no ordinary hotel room. You’ll be redeeming points for a “2 Bedroom Villa” complete with two King sized beds and two pull-out sofa beds. Combining PointSavers with a 5th night free award, you can get a 5-night stay for just 130,000 Marriott points — even during the middle of summer:

And almost every day in August is currently available:

Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa

  • Dates: September 3-30, 2019
  • Standard Rate: 60,000 points per night
  • Discounted Rate: 55,000 points per night

If you’re looking to head down to South Florida this fall, you could do worse than the all-suite Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa. Each suite is at least 750 square feet and comes with a full kitchen and pull-out sofa, making it a comfortable way to enjoy a beach vacation.

While the standard hotel night costs 60,000 points, you can drop the average down to 44,000 points per night for a 5-night stay through PointSavers. Just note that there’s a $35 daily resort fee that’s still charged for those that redeem points.

This property is only discounted for the month of September. Here’s what the availability looks like:
