As of August 18, 2018, the Marriott and Starwood programs have combined with a new slate of airline transfer partners: 44 in all!
The great news is that the airline transfer ratio and bonus miles of Starwood have been preserved.
1 SPG point = 3 Marriott points. Formerly, the transfer ratio was 20,000 SPG points = 20,000 airline miles + 5,000 bonus miles.
So now, this has been replaced with 60,000 Marriott points = 20,000 airline miles + 5,000 bonus miles.
This rate applies for 41 airlines, and 3 other airlines transfer at separate rates:
- United MileagePlus receives a 10% bonus: 60,000 Marriott points = 27,500 miles
- JetBlue TrueBlue transfers at 6:1, so 60,000 Marriott points = 12,500 points
- Air New Zealand Airpoints transfers at 200:1, so 60,000 Marriott points = 325 points
In this article, we’ll lay out all of Marriott’s airline transfer partners and discuss how to transfer Marriott points to airlines.
