Posted on September 5, 2019 by in Checking Accounts/ Bank Bonuses, Marriott Hotels, Travel Deals, Travel News

American Express is offering a 30% bonus on transfers of Membership Rewards points to Marriott through October 31. You have to log into Membership Rewards to see the bonus offer.
If you need to get more points for your Marriott account so you can make award reservations before the peak and off-peak pricing is introduced on September 14, then this Amex transfer bonus is good news.

The Amex 30% more points on Marriott transfers offer

This current 30% Marriott Bonvoy transfer bonus is targeted to U.S. based Membership Rewards members and can be found in the online account under the Membership Rewards section. The promotion ends on the 31st of October 2019. What that means is that you will receive 1300 Marriott Bonvoy points per 1000 Membership Rewards points transferred so 1.3 points per US$ spent. You can also top off your Marriott points and use them for a travel package.

To see which deals your Amex Membership Rewards account is eligible for you, you have to:

  • Log into your Amex account
  • Select one of your cards that earns Amex points
  • Choose “Explore Rewards”
  • Select “Transfer Points”
  • To see all your transfer options click “View All”

This transfer bonus is not the best unless you need to top off your Marriott account to book an award before the peak and off-peak pricing. If you are in need of topping off your account this offer is probably for you. However, don’t forget that with the plain Amex Bonvoy card you already earn 2 points per US$ spent and 6 points per US$ spent at Marriott properties.
You can also get a 40% avio transfer bonus to British Airways, Iberia and Aer Lingus until the October 1st.
