Marriott Bonvoy point transfers

Marriott Bonvoy Points can be transferred to over 40 partners, mostly at a 3:1 ratio. This means that 3,000 points can be converted to 1,000 airline miles.

In addition to that, Marriott will also throw in a 15,000-point bonus for every 60,000 points you transfer. This is equal to an additional 5,000 airline miles with most of Marriott partners.

So all-in-all, every 60,000-point block of points you transfer will give you 25,000 airline miles which is a great rate considering how easily points can be earned between using the Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card, elite status, and hotel stays.

Other ways to earn Marriott points

Marriott Bonvoy is a direct transfer partner of American Express UK Membership Rewards. AMEX points can be transferred to Marriott Bonvoy at a 2:3 ratio meaning that every 2,000 AMEX points you transfer will give you 3,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

Membership Rewards points are worth anywhere from 0.5p to 2p each, so you'll want to take note of this when transferring them to Marriott as it is possible you might lose value depending on the redemption.
