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

Chase executives told me when they launched Ultimate Rewards point transfers to airlines that they decided to focus on strong partners with easy to understand transfer ratios and not on assorted transfer ratios and transfer bonuses.

But times are changing and Chase is back with another transfer bonus.

Chase points normally transfer into Marriott points at a 1K:1K ratio, but until 8/31 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 0.65 cents each, so with typical usage you would only get a value of 1 cent per Chase point or so. You can do much better with other transfer or redemption options.

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:

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 activities 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 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, American, ANA, Copa, Delta, 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:

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

    • Chase Ink Cash has a record high 75K signup bonus and earns 5 points per dollar 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). Read more here.

Read more here.
    • Chase Freedom Unlimited has a 20K signup bonus, plus earn 5 points per dollar on up to $12K in groceries for 1 year, at least 1.5 points per dollar everywhere, 5 points per dollar on travel purchased through the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal, and 3 points per dollar on dining and drugstores ($0 annual fee).

Can u combine Marriott points between spouses?

NTorch

I would love to see an analysis of booking a Marriott hotel with Chase UR pts vs Marriott Bonvoy points.

NY

But I look at it this way that I don’t produce as many Marriott points as chase so if need a Marriott stay and short i’m still getting a 50% bonus and most of time if need will only get 1K:1K ratio so for hotel use it makes sense, not always need for flying

Points

How would I transfer into my spouses Marriott account from my ink account?

A hid

I can’t find transfer to partners in my ur portal

Avrumi

When did capital one start allowing transfers to turkish?

A hid

nate

Zevi

Does it make sense that when comparing rates (in USD) on Chase portal vs Marriott website its a few hundred more if booked through Marriott?

Zevi

And if looking to book a Marriott hotel for early October would it make sense to simply book through chase portal and get 2 cents per point or transfer to Marriott points and book through them with the 50% off?

Bochur

I used this transfer bonus recently when the cash value of the hotel was $450 a night and the bonvoy rate was 20,000 points.
