I was able to take advantage of the United Airlines/Marriott 25% bonus points promotion earlier this year by transferring Marriott points to United Airlines miles. Is this something new this year, or is it something that happens frequently? I have been looking to see if I will be able to do it again sometime. I used 270,000 Marriott points for the 7 night Cat 1-5 and 132,000 United miles. With the 25,000 United bonus miles, I was able to gain 157,000 miles. It would be great to do that again.
Also, do any of the other airline partners do this with type of transfer bonus with Marriott?
Due to the partnership between Marriott and United, there is a 10% bonus for the air+hotel packages as shown here
As far as I can see, there are no other airlines that have this type of transfer "bonus". You can still get hotel + airline miles from other airlines listed there without the 10% bonus.
Hi jbritt51, we've taken a look for you and as of right now, there is no word on whether or not there will be another promotion like this. However, continue to keep your eyes peeled as promotions come and go.
