Transfer AMEX Membership Rewards Points Into Marriott Points And Get A 40% Bonus

AMEX points normally transfer into Marriott points at a 1K:1K ratio, but until 6/15 you can get 1,400 Marriott points for every 1,000 AMEX points.

This will work with AMEX cards that earn Membership Rewards points, including:

That’s not a particularly good deal. I’d value Marriott points between 0.6-0.7 cents each, so with typical usage you would only get a value of 1 cent per AMEX point or so. That’s not as good as you can do with transferring points to Hilton.

However if you need some Marriott points for a niche hotel redemption then it can make sense.

For example 5 nights in an overwater villa with a private pool at the S. Regis Maldives is 365K points:

 

A paid stay is $10,631, so that’s a value of 3.43 cents per Marriott point or 4.08 cents per AMEX point.

5 nights at The Al Maha Dubai Resort, which has villas with private pools as their base room, all meals included and 2 daily desert activates included starts at 295K points. Paid rates for 5 nights range from $6,000-$12,500.

 

If you transfer Marriott points into airline miles at 60K increments you get a 25% bonus, so it can also make sense to transfer if you need a few points to hit a 60K increment.

60K Marriott points converts into 25K airline miles or 27K United miles, so it won’t be worth transferring AMEX points just to transfer to an airline as it would take 42,857 AMEX points to get 60K Marriott points with this transfer bonus. That is unless you really want miles with a Marriott partner like Aegean, Alaska, American, Copa, Korean, Lufthansa, or Turkish that don’t transfer directly from AMEX.

Will you transfer any points to Marriott with this promo?

@Dan why do you keep writing MT can transfer to Lufthansa? Is there a secret way how to do that?

But more expensive hilton hotels on points so this makes more sense to me.
