I read that only spouses can transfer points between each other. In past years my son has transferred points to me. Has that stopped or was it just overlooked at that time (about 3 years ago)? In a few months my son wants to gift me some points. Will it be allowed? Same last name.
I was told by customer service that you can transfer points between spouse/domestic partner, but didn't ask about children or parents. There is no charge to transfer, and they send you a contract that you both have to fill in your Marriott account information and both sign. They say it is a legal contract between the two people and therefore needs the signatures. Let me know if you hear that it can be used for parents or children.
