I recently was married and I had my wife create an account and purchase a rewards credit card as part of my loyality to Marriott.  Can you please advise me on how I can combine our two accounts together so i can use the combined points for travel related rewards for an upcoming trip I am taking to NYC?

appreciate your response....

    HI jacklahadooj  and welcome to the forums.

     

    It isn't possible to combine your account with that of your wife, but you can transfer points between spouses as per the T&Cs:

     

    Transferring Points from One Account to Another

    1. This Member benefit is available only at time of Reward Redemption (only one Reward request per Reward Redemption, please).
    2. Immediately prior to Reward Redemption, a Member may authorize the transfer of the necessary number of Points into the Rewards Program account of his/her legal spouse or domestic partner, in order to qualify for a specific Reward.
    3. Only the necessary number of Points needed to redeem the specified Reward, rounded to the nearest 1,000 Points, may be transferred — no more, no less.
    4. An Authorization to Transfer Points form must be completed and submitted to Rewards Program Guest Services in order to transfer the required number of Points. Forms are available by calling Rewards Program Guest Services at 1-801-468-4000 (Marriott Rewards Program) or 1-866-922-6882 (The Ritz-Carlton Rewards Program). A request for Reward Redemption from the transferee's legal spouse or domestic partner must be submitted to Rewards Program Guest Services with the Authorization to Transfer Points form.
    5. Once the authorization for transfer is received and processed, the transferee relinquishes all rights to the transferred Points, and they become the legal spouse's or domestic partner's Points.

     

    The important point to note here is that it can only be done when booking the redemption, so you must have all the points required for the redemption you want, and it can't be done online, you have to phone. Hope this helps...
