Earn bonus Marriott Bonvoy and Hilton points on Amex Membership Rewards transfers 

That luxury mid-year stay is looking pretty achievable right now…

Sitting on a stack of American Express Membership Rewards points? Good news – Amex is offering a generous bonus on manual transfers to both Marriott Bonvoy and Hilton Honors.

For a limited time, you can get 50% more Marriott Bonvoy and 30% more Hilton Honors points when you transfer your Membership Rewards points across by 31 May 2023.

How does the offer work?

Bonus points are calculated as a percentage of the base number after a transfer from American Express Membership Rewards. The bonus will be received after each single transfer (note that conversion rates, minimum point transfers and transfer times apply).

For example, Amex Membership Rewards transfers will earn 2 Marriott Bonvoy points for every 2 Membership Rewards points transferred.

That means I would earn 400 Marriott Bonvoy points by transferring the minimum 600 Membership Rewards points (plus an extra 200 Marriott Bonvoy points on top with a 50% transfer bonus!) 

Transfer partner Transfer bonus Minimum transfer Transfer ratio 
Marriott Bonvoy 50% 600 Marriott Bonvoy points 3:2 
Hilton Honors 30% 2,000 Hilton Honors points 2:1 

If you’re a Marriott Bonvoy and Hilton Honors member, you’ll be able to attract a bonus for transfers to both programs. Note that a different set of offer terms and conditions will apply for each transfer partner. You can find those here.
