American Express has a transfer bonus promotion going on where you can get 30% more Marriott Bonvoy points when you transfer Membership Rewards points. The regular transfer rate is 1000 Membership Rewards points = 1000 Marriott points. So with this promotion you can either get as much as 1000 Membership Rewards points = 1300 Marriott points. No expiration date is listed, but if you’re interested transfer points sooner than later.
- Minimum transfer is 1,000 Membership Rewards points.
- The additional Marriott Bonvoy Bonus Points will be awarded at the time of transfer.
The regular ratio of 1:1 is terrible. So even with this bonus of 30%, it still doesn’t make sense to use up your Membership Rewards points this way. Could be useful if you just want some extra Marriott points quickly towards a redemption, or to keep your points from expiring. Marriott points expire after 24 months of inactivity and transfer from programs such as American Express Membership Rewards or Chase Ultimate Rewards will reset the clock.
