Calculate point transfers to Marriott

Use the Point Transfer Calculator to convert rewards earned with AMEX Canada and United MileagePlus to Marriott Bonvoy Points.


AMEX Canada points to Marriott points

American Express Membership Rewards Points earned with AMEX Canada can be transferred to Marriott at a 5:6 ratio. This means every 5,000 AMEX Points you transfer would give you 6,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points.

AMEX Canada is the hands down best option for earning Marriott Bonvoy Points on everyday spend outside of using Marriott's own co-branded Canada credit cards. You can maximize your points easiest by picking up the American Express Cobalt Card which earns up to the equivalent of 6X Marriott Points per $1 spent.

You can also pick up The Platinum Card or Business Platinum Card to get complimentary Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite status which is higher than what Marriott's own credit cards offer.

United miles to Marriott points

United Miles can be transferred to Marriott at a 1:1 ratio meaning that 1,000 United Miles can be converted to 1,000 Marriott Points. This transfer will more than likely devalue your rewards as you can get a lot more value out of a single United Mile than you can a single Marriott Bonvoy Point.

I would only recommend transferring miles to Marriott if you have a fantastic redemption lined up and you really need to do so.

How to transfer United miles to Marriott

  1. Head to the Marriott-United Portal page.
  2. Scroll down to 'Convert MileagePlus Miles Into Marriott Bonvoy Points' and log into your United MileagePlus account.
  3. Enter your Marriott Bonvoy membership number.
  4. Enter how many United Miles you would like to transfer to Marriott Bonvoy.
  5. Click Convert.
