Normally, Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to Marriott at a 1:1 ratio. For example, 1,000 Ultimate Rewards points equal 1,000 Marriott Bonvoy. Now, through August 31, you’ll get a 50% bonus, which means that every 1,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points transferred will get you 1,500 Bonvoy points.
The value of this promotion will depend on how much you value Chase Ultimate Rewards points and Marriott Bonvoy points. I have a subjective valuation of some of the major point currencies here, and I have a value of 1.7¢ for Chase Ultimate Rewards and 0.6¢ for Marriott Bonvoy points. While the valuation could be different for everyone, the math will still ne against doing such transfers even with a 50% bonus. However, this could work on some specific instances where you can get outsized value for your Marriott Bonvoy points.
