You can register here for 30% bonus when you transfer hotel points to United miles.

  • The promotion runs through 10/31. It is run by United, so you won’t see any mention of it on the hotel’s points site or during the transfer process. As long as you initiate the transfer by 11:59pm ET on 10/31 you will get the bonus from United.
  • United will add 30% bonus miles for all transfers from hotel programs made between 10/1-10/31.
  • You can earn up to 25K bonus miles with this promotion per United account.

United will add the 30% bonus miles by 1/31/24.

Hotel point transfers to airlines are generally not worthwhile even with this bonus, with the exception of Marriott.

You can always transfer 60K Marriott Rewards points into 30K United miles.

United will add 30% more miles by 1/31/24, leaving you with 39,000 miles!

Even years after the SPG merger, the Marriott’s mileage conversion tool still doesn’t account for the bonus Marriott points they add onto a transfer when you transfer in increments of 60K points, but those points will be added. The tool calculates 60K points as converting into 20K United miles at the 3:1 ratio, but you’ll actually get 30K United miles (or 25K miles with most other airlines) for every 60K points transferred thanks to the 10K bonus miles that will be added onto transfers in 60K increments made to United for an effective 2:1 transfer ratio.

With the additional 30% bonus:

  • Transfer 60K Marriott points with this promo and you’ll get 39,000 United miles, an effective 1.54:1 ratio.
  • Transfer 120K Marriott points with this promo and you’ll get 78,000 United miles, an effective 1.54:1 ratio.
  • Transfer 180K Marriott points with this promo and you’ll get 115,000 United miles, an effective 1.57:1 ratio, which caps out the 25K max bonus miles.

You can transfer Marriott points between members here if you want to earn more bonus United miles for other members.

If you value Marriott points at 0.6 cents each, 60K Marriott points would be worth $360. You would get 39K United miles from a transfer of 60K Marriott points. At that valuation, you’re looking at an effective cost of 0.92 cents per United mile, which is an excellent deal!

Of course this depends on what value you typically get for your Marriott points and United miles.

It also doesn’t take into account that it’s easier to generate United miles at a good value than it is to generate Marriott points, so that alone may mean that it’s not worth taking advantage of this deal.

You can earn Marriott points with the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Bold Consumer CardChase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Consumer CardMarriott Bonvoy Business AMEX, Chase Marriott Bevy Consumer Card, AMEX Marriott Bountiful Consumer Card and the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant Consumer AMEX. You can view a chart comparing 8 Marriott cards here.

Will you transfer points to United with this promo?

Registered. Transferred 60k. So far, only 30K in my United account. Does it take extra time?


Great deal, thanks for sharing. RRV & TPG valuations show this to be a net benefit. I wish marriott’s exchange page would show you the 10K bonus miles but it doesn’t. Set a reminder for 1/31/2024 to check that United added the bonus correctly!


There could be a risk that United’s system doesn’t see the extra 10K miles in its calculation of the 30% bonus. Those miles post separately as “Marriot Bonvoy bonus” instead of “Marriott Bonvoy transfer to miles”. If they only use the “transfer” line item for calculating 30% it’s not as good of a deal.

Do we have data points on similar promos in the past?


Is there any way to cash out with Marriott free night certificates?


Is there any way to get Marriott to remove the expiration dates on free night reward certificates? They will often extend it once but they expire and are not transferable. They have received numerous complaints but are not changing their policy.


Does the Choice 100% bonus stack with United’s 30% bonus?

Is there a bonus for transfering IHG Points?


90k spend on amex bonvoy gets you 180k which then nets you 115k united. Or same 90k spend on chase ink gets you 135k chase ur which transfers to 135k united.


Why does anyone have 60k points. I never use this card the points are worth much less then other cards???


What can I get with 39,000k United points?
(how much is it worth in travel?)
Do United points ever expire?


United Points Don’t expire.


If no immediate plans do you recommend transferring


Does MT transfer to non matching UA?


Thanks for all the great info! It was not clear from the post that this rate only works in 60k increments because Marriott gives a 5k “bonus” when transferring out 60k. I think it would be helpful to others to make that more clear. Thanks.


Hi Dan I haven’t seen you post anything about the relative of martyr discount being offered by Turkish airlines tickets


“United will add the 30% bonus miles by 1/31/24”
Practically in the past how long did they take to post the bonuses?


Can I transfer Wyndham points


I’m guessing I’m not the only one no one got the full amount of bonus miles. Any ideas what to do? Thanks.


I only received the 30% bonus on the 60K miles, not the extra 30K miles. I received the 18,000 miles on November 27, 2023 and have not received anything else up through January.

10/2/2023: Marriot Bonvoy transfer to miles: 60K
10/2/2023: Marriott Bonvoy bonus: 30K
11/27/2023: Points-to-Miles bonus: 18K

It looks like they are no longer treating the bonus for the transfer bonus under the 30% bonus.
