Travelpointsguy helps I think - yoj should aim for at least 0.7 cents per point


I always try to get 1.5 cent per point at the very least. However, Marriott points will lose a lot of value in few months so if you don't have any plan use it.

Marriott is moving to a dynamic pricing mode for points redemption. This means that you won’t be able to use points against the fixed awards chart and get the same rate during peak demand where cash rates increase.
