This member benefit is only available at time of reward redemption (only one reward request per redemption, please).
Immediately prior to redemption, a member may authorize the transfer of the necessary number of Marriott Rewards points into the Marriott Rewards account of his/her spouse or domestic partner, in order to qualify for a specific reward.
Only the necessary number of Marriott Rewards points needed to redeem the specified reward, rounded to the nearest 1,000 points, may be transferred — no more, no less.
An Authorization to Transfer Points form must be completed and submitted to Marriott Guest Services in order to transfer the required number of points. Forms are available by calling Marriott Guest Services. A request for reward redemption from the transferee's spouse or domestic partner must be submitted to the Guest Services Center with the Authorization to Transfer Points form.
Once the authorization for transfer is received and processed, the transferee relinquishes all rights to the transferred points, and they become the spouse's or domestic partner's points.
For all "stay" related promotions a "hotel stay" or "stay" means all consecutive nights spent with Marriott by a Marriott Rewards member.
You can also buy points for cash, but the price is high:
A member may purchase or receive as a gift a combined maximum of 50,000 points per calendar year.
Please allow 24-48 hours for transaction to be completed and points awarded to recipient.
You must be a Marriott Rewards member in good standing to both purchase and receive points.
Once points have been purchased or gifted, no refunds will be permitted.
Purchasing points with the Marriott Rewards Visa® card will result in earning one point per dollar spent on these transactions.
Points may be purchased at the rate of $12.50 per 1,000 points.
