Swifties, we don't have to tell you that Taylor Swift's Eras Tour is the hottest ticket of the year. Her concerts have been selling out in minutes, and if you've tried getting your hands on tickets to one, you know they're going for thousands of dollars on resale sites. It's enough to make any fan despair!

But here's a little secret: you can bypass the frenzy and snag those coveted tickets without shelling out any cash or maxing out your credit card. How, you ask? By using your Marriott Bonvoy points. That's right, Marriott is offering a way for you to turn your loyalty points into a night of unforgettable music and memories. No more stressing over inflated prices or missing out on tickets -- just pure Swiftie bliss.

How to get Taylor Swift tickets with points

Starting June 12, you can grab four tickets to Taylor Swift's Miami concert for 500,000 points. That's the equivalent of about $4,200, which is pretty good considering single tickets are going for more than that. Imagine trading in those points for a night of singing along to "Love Story" and "Shake It Off" with your best friends. Pretty cool, right?

Not into Miami? After the Miami points packages launch, other cities will be made available with the same deal. You can buy a package for the New Orleans concert starting June 19 and Indianapolis on June 26.

But that's not all! Marriott Bonvoy is also running a sweepstakes for an all-expenses-paid trip to see Taylor Swift in Indianapolis on Sunday, Nov. 3. The winner will get flights for two, two nights at a luxurious hotel, and, of course, tickets to the concert. To enter, all you have to do is book a stay at any U.S. Marriott location before Sept. 15 and check in using the Marriott Bonvoy app. It's a simple way to potentially win a truly unforgettable experience.

Other experiences to book with Marriott Bonvoy points

Now, let's talk about the bigger picture. Marriott Bonvoy Moments is revolutionizing how you can use loyalty points. Sure, redeeming points for free hotel stays is great, but why stop there? With Marriott Bonvoy Moments, you can turn your points into once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Fancy a Michelin-starred meal? You can use your points for an exquisite dinner and kitchen tour at Per Se in New York City for around 87,000 points. Or perhaps you're into sports -- think VIP tickets to major events or even meet-and-greets with your favorite athletes. Art lovers aren't left out either, with options for private museum tours and exclusive gallery events.

The offerings change regularly, so there's always something new and exciting to explore. Marriott Bonvoy Moments lets you turn your points into memories that go far beyond just another hotel stay.
