Unique experiences with the Marriot Moments program

If you find yourself with more Marriott Rewards points than you know what to do with, take advantage of the Marriott Moments program and score unique, once-in-a-lifetime experiences for you and your friends or family.

With over 100,000 experiences and thousands of Marriott-exclusive offers, you’ll be able to find your next dream activity – whether it’s VIP Suite seats at a U2 concert, private dinners at Michelin-star restaurants, or photography masterclasses in the Al Wadi desert.

The recently relaunched Marriott Moments program takes the Moments program and expands on it in almost every way. With so many experiences on offer, Moments now operates as a marketplace - find the activity or experience you’re interested in, and use your Marriott Rewards Points to bid on what you want.

Fancy a helicopter ride to 3 Michelin Star restaurant Aqua, a meet and greet with the chef during a kitchen tour, and a stay at the Ritz-Carlton Wolfsburg? With Moments, it’s just a matter of making sure you’ve got the winning bid once the points auction ends.

While the Moments program offers incredible culinary, sports, entertainment and lifestyle experiences, many of them are surprisingly accessible. For example, a private lunch experience at 3-Michelin Star restaurant Core by Clare Smyth generally goes for between 30,000 – 40,000 Marriott Rewards points. With earning rates of up to 10 points per dollar spent at eligible Marriott properties, that represents as little as $3,000 in spend.

Some experiences on Moments don’t require you to bid – instead you can redeem your Marriott Rewards points for a fixed amount. For example, tickets to see Barry Manilow at London’s ‘The O2’ are just 45,000 points and give you access to a fully-stocked Custom Luxury Suite with food and beverages included for two people.

If you’re a Starwood Preferred Guest member, your points can also be used to redeem experiences on the Moments platform thanks to the merger of the two brands.

So if you’ve got a surplus of Marriott Rewards points or SPG Points, explore Moments to see what you could bid on and give yourself a unique, unforgettable memory.
