Expiration Date – March 31, 2016
Through March 31, 2016, enjoy up to 25% more MileagePlus miles when you convert Marriott Rewards points - up to 25,000 bonus miles!
This 25% bonus offer is open to all MileagePlus members in the US and requires registration by March 31, 2016, before you can earn the bonus miles. You should also register for RewardsPlus if you haven’t already to enjoy the Elite perks of the United Airlines and Marriott Rewards partnership!
RewardsPlus Travel Packages with the 25% conversion bonus are an excellent value. And the hotel award portion of the Travel Package is valid for one year and can be reissued if you desire a change. Here’s a helpful Travel Package example:
To book 7 nights at a category 7 hotel without a Travel Package you would need to redeem 210,000 Marriott Rewards points (Marriott always gives you the 5th night free for award night redemptions, so for a 7-night stay you’d pay 35,000 points x 6 nights, or 210,000 points total)
A Marriott Travel Package without a conversion bonus costs 260,000 Marriott Rewards points for a 7-night stay in a category 7 hotel AND you receive 55,000 MileagePlus miles; therefore based on the example above, it’s like trading 50,000 Marriott Rewards points for 55,000 MileagePlus miles
With this 25% transfer bonus for the same Travel Package you’d enjoy 68,750 MileagePlus miles instead of 55,000 miles
Based on the example above and trvlvip’s valuations, 1 Marriott Rewards point is worth .7 cents per point and 1 MileagePlus mile is worth 1.5 cents per mile, so with this 25% bonus you are trading 50,000 Marriott Rewards points worth $350 for 68,750 MileagePlus miles worth $1,030 - An excellent conversion value!
And with a 25% bonus to convert Marriott Rewards points into MileagePlus miles, you’ll enjoy a good value at the 24,000 Marriott Rewards points conversion levels or higher:
8,000 Marriott Rewards points ($56 value) converts to 2,500 MileagePlus miles ($38 value) - poor value
16,000 Marriott Rewards points ($112 value) converts to 6,250 MileagePlus miles ($94 value) - poor value
24,000 Marriott Rewards points ($168 value) converts to 12,500 MileagePlus miles ($188 value) - good value
56,000 Marriott Rewards points ($392 value) converts to 31,250 MileagePlus miles ($469 value) - great value
112,000 Marriott Rewards points ($784 value) converts to 62,500 MileagePlus miles ($938 value) - great value
Bonus miles will be credited into your account before April 30, 2016, this offer can not be combined with other MileagePlus promotions and the bonus miles do not count toward MileagePlus Elite qualification.
This is a good value if you plan to convert at least 24,000 points into MileagePlus miles or desire a seven-night Marriott stay and have enough Marriott Rewards points to redeem for a Travel Package.
