How to Transfer Marriott Points to Airline Partners
Transfer Marriott points to airline miles here.
Minimum transfer is 3,000 Marriott points.
You can transfer up to 240,000 Marriott points per day.
Marriott Transfer Bonuses
Occasionally Marriott may offer a transfer bonus for select airlines. This is an ideal time to transfer points to get the most value out of them, however I would still only transfer points if you have a specific redemption in mind.

Hot Tip: Another way to transfer Marriott points into airline miles is to purchase a Marriott Hotel + Air Travel Package. These packages consist of a 7 night hotel stay plus a stash of airline miles.
Redeeming Marriott Points
It’s no surprise that Marriott points are the favorites of many travelers.
Marriott stands apart from hotel points programs for not only providing great award stay opportunities at its hotels; they also have great airline transfer options — by far the best offered by any hotel program.
