Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points Into Marriott Points And Get A 50% Bonus

Chase points normally transfer into Marriott points at a 1K:1K ratio, but until 5/15/23 you can get 1,500 Marriott points for every 1,000 Chase points.

That’s not a particularly good deal. I’d value Marriott points at about 0.6 cents each, so with typical usage you would only get a value of 0.9 cents per Chase point. You can do much better with other transfer or redemption options.

Alternatively, you can click on buy Marriott points here with a bonus. I can buy points with a 40% bonus, which comes out to 0.89 cents per point. If you value your Chase points higher than 1.34 cents each (which you should if you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve®® card) you may be better off just purchasing Marriott points rather than transferring from Chase, even with a 50% bonus.

If you need some Marriott points for a niche lucrative hotel redemption then it can make sense to transfer or purchase points.

You can get a bargain on an all-inclusive safari at the JW Marriott Masai Mara Safari Lodge.

Or for example, a 5 night stay in a villa in the Maldives can be had starting at 196K Marriott points, or 130K Chase points at hotels like the Le Meridien Maldives, Ritz-Carlton Maldives, W Maldives, or S. Regis Maldives, where you can often get outsized value for your points. I’ve stayed at the latter 2 and they are heaven on Earth!

5 nights at The Al Maha Dubai Resort, which has villas with private pools as their base room, all meals (even kosher meals!) included and 2 daily desert activities included can be had for 346K points. Paid rates for 5 nights range from $7,500-$12,500, making for an exceptional value.

 

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 20-25K airline miles or 27K United miles, so it won’t be worth transferring Chase points just to transfer to an airline as it would take 40,000 Chase points to get 60K Marriott points with this transfer bonus. That is unless you really want miles with a Marriott partner like Aegean, Alaska, ANA, Copa, Etihad, Hawaiian, Korean, LATAM, Qantas, or Turkish that don’t transfer directly from Chase and you’re willing to accept a 40K:25K transfer ratio.

  • If you, a member in your household, or an authorized user has one of the following Chase cards, you can transfer points into miles:
    • The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card has up to a 60,000 signup bonus (after spending $4,000 in the first 3 months), earns 2.1 points per dollar on travel, 3.1 points per dollar on dining, streaming, and online groceries, can transfer all Chase points into miles, and points are worth at least 1.3 cents each for paid travel ($95 annual fee). Read more here.
    • The Chase Sapphire Reserve®® card has up to a 60,000 signup bonus (after spending $4,000 in the first 3 months), earns 3 points per dollar on dining/travel, can transfer all Chase points into miles, and points are worth at least 1.5 cents each for paid travel ($550 annual fee with $300 travel credit). Read more here.
    • The Chase Ink Preferred® Card has up to a 100,000 signup bonus (after spending $8,000 in the first 3 months) and earns 3 points per dollar on the first $150,000/year spent on shipping, advertising, and travel, can transfer all Chase points into miles, and points are worth at least 1.25 cents each for paid travel or pay yourself back categories ($95 annual fee). Read more here.

    Chase no-annual fee cards that are fantastic for earning points, but require one of the cards above for points transfers include:

    • The Ink Business Cash® Credit Card® Card has up to a 75K signup bonus, advertised as $750 cash back, after spending $6,000 in the first 3 months, and earns 5 points per dollar on the first $25,000 spent in combined purchases on cable, TV, telecom, cellular, office supply stores, and gift cards from office supply stores, plus 2 points per dollar on dining and gas ($0 annual fee).

This website makes me so sad because I am so bad at math and I am not following this at all (and I am not a stupid person by any stretch of the imagination)! It happens to be that I could use some extra Marriott points but I don’t understand whether I should be buying them directly from Marriott or transferring them from Chase. Please help!

Andrew

They’re about the same either way. Up to you.

Chris G

Ugh, just transferred points from UR to Marriott a few days ago as I had an advanced points purchase coming up to 60 day limit.

Anyone had luck with Chase honoring this just outside of the offer?

CB

thinking I should as Im not a big UR guy and just have 10k sitting there

Danfan

Would it make sense to transfer from chase in order to get American or Alaska points?

USA

does Marriott transfer to American?

Dr Rumack

Yes. 3:1

Avrohom
