Targeted: MR (USA) transfer bonus to Marriott Bonvoy (40-50%)

Just noticed this offer when I logged on. Not available on my personal gold but available on business plat.

wonder if it's linked to amex pulling all authorized users MR accounts?

is this worth it? Does the bonus make for a better redemption rate over other hotel and travel partners?

MR to Bonvoy transfer bonus

I was offered 50% bonus points when transferring MR to Bonvoy points. I'm not sure how common this offer is though.

were these offers on top of the standard 25% e.g. 60k MR = 20k + 5k bonvoy?
what cards were you offered this on? what's your transfer history to bonvoy?

See it on the Business Plus. Actually a bit tempted by it - this makes the same ratio of SPG to Marriott before Jul 2018.

Isnít the standard transfer ratio 1kMR - 1kBonvoy? I donít understand the 3-1 + 25% bonus.

It is. The person to whom you replied appears to be confusing

(a) the AMEX Membership Rewards points transfer ratio to Marriott Rewards Bonvoy points, which is normally 1:1

with

(b) the Marriott Rewards Bonvoy points transfer ratio to various airlines, which is 60k Marriott Rewards Bonvoy points = 20k + 5k bonus in airline miles.

arrghhh. you're right.

looks like i picked the wrong week to stop drinking

actually though, my Amex Cobalt points transfer 5:6, i.e. 5000 MR Select points transfers to 6000 Bonvoy. then the bonvoy points transfer to airline programs with the bonus.

but i'd still like to know what card your bonus points are for.

Amex Platinum, I only transferred MR points to Skymiles once. My spend on the AX Plat card is not that great, so I don't have a ton of MR Points, but this year I had to buy several last minute airline tickets for work, so between relatively high fares and 5x on those the balance is non-trivial.
