Transfer Marriott Bonvoy Points Online
Marriott has made an improvement to how members can transfer points between Bonvoy accounts. This has been a free option for quite some time, but it required contacting customer support. That’s no longer the case, as Marriott Bonvoy has added n online tool that makes the process much easier.
You can transfer your Marriott Bonvoy® Points to another Member’s Account through the Points Transfer tool which can be found online here.
The Marriott Bonvoy account holder sending the points will need the recipient’s Marriott Bonvoy Name and Number as it is reflected in their Marriott Bonvoy account, to complete the transfer. The First and Fast Name of the Points Recipient must be entered exactly how they appear on their Marriott Bonvoy membership account in order to successfully complete the transfer.
Both Marriott Bonvoy accounts must be in good-standing and have each been open for at least thirty (30) days with Qualifying Activity or ninety (90) days without Qualifying Activity.
You will need to transfer a minimum of 1,000 Marriott Bonvoy® Points. The annual transfer cap is 100,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. A member can receive up to a maximum of 500,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points, per calendar year, from other member accounts.
Transferring points is a good way to pool them towards a redemption if either account doesn’t have enough points. It is also useful when a member has higher status, so booking through that account will get you better perks and benefits. Now, with being able to transfer Marriott Bonvoy points online, the process is much easier.
