- Find your experience by browsing through each passion point for exclusive Marriott Bonvoy Moments. You can also search by date, location, event type and more.
- Use your points by bidding, auction-style, on a single event, or by redeeming for fixed-price events.
What is an auction experience?
An auction experience allows members to bid on a single package and the highest bid wins at the close of the auction period. An experience may have multiple packages available, and each package represents its own auction and each can be redeemed by the single highest bidder. The Bid Now button identifies this experience type.
What is a fixed-price experience?
A fixed-price experience is always a set point value, typically with a limited number of packages available. A member can redeem immediately with the required value of points indicated on the experience detail page. The Redeem Now button identifies this experience type.
What is a private experience?
From time to time, Marriott Bonvoy Moments will feature experiences for selected groups of members. Eligibility is determined solely at the discretion of Marriott Bonvoy.
How long are Moments experiences live on the website?
Experiences are typically live for 15 to 30 days from the date of the event launch. It should be noted that these are averages, and durations will vary.
Is there a limit to how many experiences I can purchase?
Members may only redeem (fixed Point or auction) a total of up to 5 (five) experiences per calendar year; to include up to two packages per event when available. Additional restrictions may apply. Once this maximum is reached, members are not eligible for additional redemptions.

Please call us at 1-844-892-0634 with your specific question so that we can better assist you. All modifications are solely at the discretion of Marriott Bonvoy.
Are experiences returnable?
No. All redemptions are final. Fixed price redemptions will immediately deduct points from your account, and auction redemptions will deduct points once the auction is completed and won.
Can I gift my Moments experience to a friend or relative?
Many of our packages include two tickets so that a friend or relative can attend. However,
a Moments experience or components of an experience redeemed, may not be transferred, sold, assigned, re-marketed, or otherwise disposed of, without obtaining Marriott’s prior written consent.
Violators are subject to removal from the program and forfeiture of Points balance.
How do I bid?
It’s easy — just follow these simple steps:
- First, log in. Please see log-in instructions above.
- Find your Moments event and click “Bid Now” to begin.
- Place a manual bid by clicking “Bid XX,XXX points,” or place a maximum bid by entering your maximum bid amount and clicking “Submit Max Bid.”
- Review and accept the terms and conditions.
- Review the final bid details; then click “Confirm Bid” to submit your bid.
Once your bid is confirmed, it is final and cannot be retracted.
Can I increase my bid?
Yes, you can increase your bid anytime before the auction closes. To do so, simply follow the bidding steps above.
How will I know if my bid is no longer the winning bid?
We will automatically send you an email when your bid is no longer the highest. At that time, you will have the opportunity to raise your bid.
How will I know if I win an auction?
If you are the winning bidder, you will receive an email notification. In addition, you will be personally contacted by a Marriott Bonvoy Moments specialist to finalize the details of your Moments experience.
What is a bid increment?
The bid increment is the minimum number of points required to place a bid. For example, if the bid increment is 2,500 and you click the “Bid” button, you are placing a bid for 2,500 more points than the current high bid. All bids must be made in 2,500 point increments.
What is a manual bid?
While watching an auction in real time, you will see a button that says “Bid XX,XXX points.” When you click that button, you are placing a one-time manual bid for the stated number of points.
How do I place a manual bid?
Submit a manual bid by clicking the “Bid” button. This automatically increases the current high bid by the bid increment amount
What is a Max Bid and how does it work?
Placing a maximum bid makes bidding easy. Bid the highest amount you’re willing to pay and the system will automatically bid the minimum amount required to keep you in the lead, until you win or reach your maximum bid amount. Your maximum bid will remain hidden from everyone else. Once you enter a maximum bid, you may not increase, reduce or remove it. If another member outbids your maximum bid, you will receive an email notification. If the auction is still open at that time, you may then decide to place a manual bid or stop bidding on the item. To win with a maximum bid, you must have submitted the highest bid at the final closing time of the auction.
- If the current bid is 50,000 points and your max bid is 100,000, we’ll bid 52,500 for you.
- If no one else bids, you win! You’ll pay 52,500 points.
- Or, if someone else bids 75,000 points, we’ll bid 77,500 for you.
- We’ll continue to bid to keep you in the lead, up to your max bid.
- If someone else bids 102,500, we’ll notify you via email that you’ve been outbid.
- If two people bid the same amount, the first bid placed has priority.
- Your max bid will remain hidden from everyone else.
- All bids are placed in minimum increments of 2,500 points.
- Once you confirm your Max Bid, you may not decrease or remove it.
What is an auto bid?
An auto bid is a bid placed automatically by the system on behalf of a member who has submitted a maximum bid. If you reach the point in an auction where your auto bid does not meet the bid increment amount, your final bid will be placed for the full amount of your maximum bid. Therefore, it is possible for a maximum bid to win for less than the minimum bid increment. When a maximum bid is the highest bid at the final close of the auction, it wins — even if it’s only higher by one point.
What happens if I purchase a fixed-price event and I do not have enough points?
You will be contacted by a Moments specialist.
Can I submit a bid offline?
We accept bids online only, but you can submit bids from your mobile device (via our mobile site) or your desktop computer.
Do all auctions close at exactly the scheduled closing time?
Yes. Auctions will not be extended beyond the close time listed on the experience detail page. You are encouraged to use the maximum bid functionality to place the highest bid you are willing to pay and allow the system to bid on your behalf during the auction window.
Can I retract a confirmed bid?
No. Once confirmed, all bids are final and cannot be retracted. If you are the winning bidder, points will be deducted automatically from your account to use for your Moments experience.
What happens if I am bidding on an event and I do not have enough points?
If you do not have enough points during an auction, you will automatically be disqualified.
How many points do auction experiences typically redeem for?
There is no average point redemption —the winning bid for each package varies due to many reasons to include timing, number of members bidding, maximum bid of those interested. Marriott does not control the ending bid of similar packages and will not refund the difference of points for a package won due to the ending price of another package.
