Marriott Destinations Club Members
If you are a Marriott Destinations Club member, I just found a cool trick. If you are short on points for the year, you can Buy or Rent Marriott Destinations Points. Technically, this is called "renting" because you only get the "one time" use of the points for a particular, but it is very cool. It allows a lot of flexibility for those that want to add some points some years to their portfolio without going back and purchasing permanent points. The site lets you find DC owners that have extra points and want to "sell" them. They usually sell for about $0.45 to $0.60 per point.
