Starting the new year, I've got to choose between using my Chase Sapphire card and the Chase Marriott card. Does anyone know if the points transferred from Sapphire to a Marriott account qualify towards the lifetime Marriott status? The Sapphire points are more flexible, but my ultimate long term goal is to get lifetime plat status at Marriott and I'll need credit card points to get there in my lifetime. :-)
I was literally about to just ask this same question until I stumbled upon this post. I'm considering signing up for the Sapphire Preferred for their sign-up bonus (40,000 points if $4k spend in first 3 months). If I transferred these 40k points 1:1 to Marriott - would these get added to my lifetime points total?
Welcome to Insiders, cobusinesstraveler! Points earned from spending on the Chase Marriott Rewards Credit Card do count towards lifetime status however, I am unsure about the points transferred in from the Sapphire Reserve Card. Taking a look into this for you.
