A nostalgic look back at the way things used to be. Circa 2009.

 

Let's suppose a hypothetical Platinum member wanted to spend a week in Europe on points.

 

2009 -

 

Redeem 7 night travel European hopper 150 K points, 3 nights in Paris, 4 nights in London

 

50 K points- Spring Megabonus- 25 nights

95K points from same 25 nights- 190 dollars a night x 10 points base, x 5 points plat, x 5 points and Marriott credit card

5K 500 point arrival  times 10 stays

 

2016-

 

redeem 7 nights at Cat 9 hotels, one night free if one stay is 5 nights = 270K points

 

30K Spring Megabonus- 25 nights

120K points from same 25 nights- 240 (I'm assuming average room rate is up that much from 2009) dollars a night x 10 points base, x 5 points plat, x5 points and Marriott credit card

5K 500 point arrival  times 10 stays

 

Congratulations you are 57% of the way there.
