What are PointSavers™ Awards?

The PointSavers program is a revolving list of properties worldwide available to Marriott members at discounted award rates.

When you book an award stay at a property on the PointSavers list, you pay fewer points than the typical award category of the hotel, saving up to 33%. For instance, booking a room at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel at the PointSavers rate will cost 32,500 points rather than the 35,000 it typically requires for a Standard Award as a category 5 hotel.

Earning Points to Redeem for PointSavers Awards

While you can earn plenty of Rewards points through stays and promotions, by far the fastest way to accumulate points is with the Marriott co-brand credit cards which include:

How to Book a PointSavers Award

Booking a PointSavers Award stay works exactly like a standard award reservation. We'll run through an example booking the Marriott's Grande Ocean, a Marriott Vacation Club property on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

Go to the Marriott Rewards PointSavers website to determine which hotels are participating and select the link to your hotel; the dates each hotel is participating will show up when you expand the region.

Bonus: You earn elite night credits when booking PointSavers Rewards.

Final Thoughts

While you won't always find a property on the PointSavers list for your chosen destination, it is worthwhile checking before you book as you could save a significant number of points. Another fantastic way of using PointSavers is to explore new destinations, what better way to use your points than by whisking yourself away to an unknown new destination and rediscovering that sense of exploration and discovery that only new destinations can give.

Remember, select Marriott and SPG co-brand credit cards will automatically give you elite status in their respective programs, further enhancing your stay.
