I have 500k bonvoy pts. Have the option to sell for .75 now. Also have a honeymoon in less than 12 months. Am I better A) holding pts with a high prob to redeem over 1.0? B) selling now... to lock .75 & give max flexibility for honeymoon (not shopping for best point deals)?

Obviously they're referring to cents not dollars.

missing decimal somewhere? Sounds like you can sell your points and buy a house 😛.

Asked another way... should I feel good I can consistently secure 1.0 -1.5 value if I know I have a week long stay at a premium hotel coming soon? Or is it getting harder to do?

They’re worth around what you could sell them for, but selling points is prohibited so you run the risk of losing your account and points

No way to tell honestly. Marriott keeps reducing of their points with things like seasonal award pricing so they certainly aren’t appreciating as time goes on. Personally I’d keep them though, if you travel at off peak times you’ll probably find a good deal somewhere.

Also let us know where you sold them coz I have more than a million miles.

As an associate that is quite a lot of points to accumulate. How did you do it?
