Most of Marriott's airline partners have a 3:1 ratio which means that every 3,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points you transfer will give you 1,000 airline miles. When compared to other hotel loyalty programs, this is quite fantastic because you earn a base rate of 10 Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent at Marriott Bonvoy hotels. When transferred, that's equal to 3.3 airline miles. No other hotel chain offers the ability to earn that many airline miles per $1 spent at the base rate.

Marriott Points Transfer Bonus

For every 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points you transfer, Marriott will throw in 15,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy Points which is equal to an additional 5,000 miles with most of Marriott Partners based on the 3:1 ratio. This means that a 60,000 point transfer will earn you 25,000 airline miles which makes it slightly better 3:1.25 ratio. World of Hyatt offers a similar transfer bonus.

Are Transferring Points Worth It?

In my opinion, Marriott is one of the only hotel rewards program in which transferring Marriott Bonvoy Points can still bring you great value without totally nuking the value. This is due to the excellent 3:1 ratio along with the bonus you earn from transferring 60,000 points at a time. You can earn up to 23.5 Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent with Marriott if you use any of Marriott's 6x earning credit cards and have Marriott Titanium or higher status. This equates to 7.833 airline miles per $1 spent with Marriott which is pretty unbeatable.

In terms of value, Marriott Bonvoy Points are worth around 0.7 cents on average according to my calculations. This means that 3 Marriott Bonvoy Points is worth about 2.1 cents in value. It is very possible to transfer 3 points and get 2.1 cents from a single airline mile depending on the redemption of said single mile. Other hotel rewards programs usually lose significant value due to either sub-par to terrible transfer ratios (e.g. Hilton) or because the value of the hotel points is significantly high (e.g. Hyatt).
