I have never had a charge for a transfer!
You just have to request a form from Marriott, fill it out, and FAX it back. Actually very simple, (Or it has been)!
Good luck and welcome to MRI!

To add to what jerrycoin shared; here is a link with more information about transferring rewards points:
Below are the terms and conditions for transferring points from the Marriott website. Note that it states that the transfer is available only at time of Reward Redemption. My wife transferred points to me a few years ago before a trip and it was a easy process. Good luck!
Hello girlsclub -
Just to reconfirm, transferring points is an option that can only be done at the time of redeeming points for a reward and can only be done in increments of 1,000 points, up to the cost of the reward that is being ordered. If you are ready to redeem a reward, the office can fax or mail you a point transfer affidavit that the member donating their points needs to sign authorizing the transfer. Upon return of the signed affidavit, the points are transferred and the needed reward is ordered. You can also call the Marriott Rewards number at any time for further assistance, 800-450-4442.
Hope this helps!
