Chase to Marriott 50% transfer bonus

Chase has announced a new 50% Marriott transfer bonus which matches its highest ever. From now until 05/15/23 you can transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards to Marriott and get a 50% bonus.  One thing to pay attention to is the changes Marriott has done to their award program which is fully dynamic now ( no award charts ). Also, don’t forget we keep an up to date transfer bonus page.

What cards are eligible?

Your card needs to earn transferrable Ultimate Rewards so you need to have one of the following cards to qualify.

As long as you have one of those cards, your points can be moved from Chase and into any of the programs listed below, including Marriott. If you have a Chase Freedom Unlimited, Chase Freedom Flex, Chase Ink Business Cash or Chase Ink Business Unlimited AND one of the cards listed above, you can merge those points into the account with transfer capabilities. If you’re unfamiliar with that feature, read this article.

What are the details?

  • Runs until 05/15/23
  • Increments of 1k
  • 1k Chase Ultimate Rewards: 1500 Marriott Bonvoy points

Is transferring Chase points to Marriott a good idea?

Ordinarily I would say that Chase points are worth close to 2 cents a pop while Marriott are worth less than a penny. So, no, under normal circumstances I would advise against such transfers…but there is a always a caveat.

Super high end properties that are crazy expensive per night. For instance, I went to the St Regis Maldives as part of my honeymoon – here is a look at the the St Regis Maldives calendar

With the current transfer bonus, on the cheapest nights you’d only need to move 60k Chase points per night to get over $1500 worth of value. When you factor in the 5th night free… you could do 5 nights for 328k points, or 235k points. That is $7500 worth or 3+ cents per point and definitely worth the transfer.

Marriott offers 5th nights free…

As long as you are a Marriott Bonvoy member, you get a 5th night free. If you were to go at the beginning of Sept, you’d pay 372k with a 5th night free, or 250k Chase points with the bonus

Crunch the numbers, the transfer bonus ends 05/15/23

If you’re sitting on a healthy balance of Chase points and looking to take an experiential trip at an expensive property…this could be a wonderful time to get more bang for you buck. If you’re looking at run of the mill hotels – personally I wouldn’t advise using your Chase points unless you’re getting more than 2 cents per point in value.

  • […] 50% bonus on Chase transfers to Marriott through August 31, 2021. On average this gets you a penny a point in value with Marriott, not a great deal, though there are outlier cases of course where you’ll do much better. Still, better to transfer when there’s a bonus than when there isn’t one – and we haven’t seen Chase transfer bonuses often so exciting on that level. […]
