I just joined Marriott Insiders. Does transferring 50,000 points to a spouse this year prevent that spouse from purchasing an additional 50,000 points, for a total of 100,000 in a calendar year? He is trying to achieve a hotel/air package and when I did this two years ago there were no such rules as long as the transfer recipient immediately purchased a particular award. I am confused by what appears to be new regulations, so I'll put this question out to the experts.

in regards to your question, the 50,000 point limitation for transferring and point purchases are separate. So 50,000 points can be transferred and another 50,000 points can be purchased on one account. Let me know if you have any additional questions!
