How to Sell Marriott Points Fast and Easily
The Marriott Hotel Rewards loyalty program allows you to earn redeemable points every time you stay at Marriott Hotels or any other hotel under Marriott's International administration. You can sell Marriott points for free hotel stays, car rentals, gift cards, travel packages, and even flights.

Through DoNotPay's Convert Points and Miles product, you can sell your Marriott points at the best available prices as DoNotPay will find for you third-party dealers offering the best deals. This will also save you the hassle of finding the dealers and figuring out the best options for you.

How Much Money Are Marriott Points Worth?
According to FinanceBuzz, the value of Marriott points ranges between 0.81 cents to 1.0 cents depending on the cash price of the hotel that day.
You can get an estimated value of the points when you want to redeem them for a stay at the hotel by doing a simple calculation.
First, know the price per night stay at the hotel that night and the number of points they need for a night stay. Multiply the price by 100 to convert it to cents and divide by the number of points needed. This should give you the value of the points that day.
How to Sell Marriott Points on Your Own
Since you cannot sell Marriott points directly from their website, you'll need to find third-party buyers and get a quote for the points you are selling. Some buyers set a minimum limit on the number of points they can sell.
Once you have identified a buyer, visit their website to find out the process, you'll need to follow to successfully sell your points.
This could be a long and hectic process, especially because these third-party buyers offer low rates and a complicated selling process.
