Bugger All...

I've checked a bunch of destinations that I'm particular about and don't see a reduction.

Check TORONTO, Marriott Eaton Centre flex dates in Dec. All nights except for Dec 31 are 27,500 pts. Even Dec 31 is only 30K pts.

I just rebooked 2 nights of my stay at the Cozumel Westin and saved 10,000 points each night for a grand total of 20,000. So my 7 nights there are 4 free Chase nights, 2 30,000 point nights and a paid night from AMEX Travel where my Platinum card rebated $200! Plus I'm staying on a Platinum challenge and AA changed my flights so I had to cancel. When I rebooked, it was $29 more to fly F and J down and back (one flight of each to reach Cozumel!) A good day!

Now that's what I call a winning day in my book.

I'm sorry, there were free AMEX nights from my credit cards. 1 Bonvoy personal, 1 Bonvoy biz, 2 that expired that got extended, and 2 new-all 35k. It actually was the incentive to make the trip. Cozumel actually has very little COVID too-20 cases on the island and 342 that recovered from it.

Just checked a few properties and I’m still seeing the reduced rate point redemptions. Either Marriott decided to extend the sale or IT forgot to put an end date on the off peak pricing.

Wanted to bump this to ask if the Marriott-wide discounted point redemption rate is a somewhat common promotion. I know we saw it a couple of times in 2020, but have they done this promotion in the past? I was wanting to do a 5th night free redemption sometime in 2021 and my dates are flexible so I'm not in a rush to book, but a lot of places I'm looking at currently have only one or two nights a week of point savers availability.

I havenít seen Marriott Bonvoy roll out such broad and sweeping reductions in points requirements before the pandemic, but Iíve not been in the game as long as some folks. The usual Bonvoy approach is to increase the number of points required to book properties as time goes on. So Iíd get your bookings locked in whilst the points rates are available at a rate you find acceptable, especially as widespread vaccination could facilitate a travel rebound and redemption availability could become scarcer, with a rise in cash prices also a possibility.
