How long does it take to transfer points into miles?
Typically, this process takes a few days to 2 weeks.

Who should I contact if I have trouble transferring points?
Start by contacting the recipient of the points, then Marriott, if that fails.

When, where, and how should you follow up if a transfer doesn't complete?
Send an email to [email protected] with your full name and Marriott Bonvoy number

Converting points to miles question

When I go to the convert place, it shows for every 60k points, there's a 5,000 mile bonus. When I click the next screen, you put the airline and amount. I put in 60,000 points and it says it converts to 22,000 miles. That doesn't seem to include the 5,000 bonus???

When the bonus is added, is the net 27,000 miles? Will it actually be added? (since the tool only says 22k)

Thank you.

The bonus is added after the conversion screen and not all airlines are 3:1 ratio. Which airline?

You should get 27k UA miles sent to MileagePlus, but I can't get past the screen to enter the MileagePlus account number since it says my account is invalid. (Legacy CO acct)

New data point. Transferred 3000 pts to Hawaiian Airlines to keep my account active. Transfer took two days. (Might have been one day, but the miles weren't there yesterday morning, but they were today.) Wiki updated.

It also reminded me that the last time I did this, I was able to transfer 5 SPG pts to keep my account active. The good old days. (Yes, I know. I could have transferred 1 point.)

I wish I found out about this earlier. Was going to redeem for this month's FB promotion. It is completely ridiculous the bonus point can show up in 48 hours but the base points take 6 weeks. How does then even compute?

On a side note, I transferred from my wife's Bonvoy account (Gold Elite) to my AA account. The activities (including the 15,000 Bonus miles) were listed on the Bonvoy account on the 26th and the miles were in AA as of 8:30am 3/27, with activities showing dates of 3/24 for the Bonus and 3/25 for the Base miles.

Transferring pts to family members FF program

If you put in a transfer to a family member with same last name to an airline program, will it go through? Also is there a way to add FF programs to the profile for future transfers?

During SPG days and right before the launch of Bonvoy, we used to get a confirmation email for points transferred.

Is that still the case now?

Just did a points transfer but didn't get any email.

Thanks

Transferring Points to Airlines-Big Change with Minimum

As a SPG Platinum member, I use to be able to transfer as little as 10 SPG points to an airline to keep my airline account active. Today I tried to transfer Bonvoy points to an airline and it required a minimum of 3000 points .

Our apologies for the inconvenience, but even with SPG that had changed to be a 1,000 Starpoint minimum towards the end.
