Marriott points are the most flexible points (because after Marriott merged with SPG, Marriott inherited its large number of aviation partners).
1. The credit cards that can obtain Marriott points are: Chase Marriott bonvoy boundless, chase Marriott bonvoy bold, AMEX Marriott bonvoy brilliant, AMEX Marriott bonvoy business.
2. Cards that can no longer be applied for but can still be obtained through card transfer: Chase Ritz Carlton, and AMEX Marriott bonvoy.
Marriott points are saved on the Marriott account instead of the credit card itself, so closing the credit card will not result in the loss of points.
However, if there are no receipts or disbursements in the Marriott account within 24 months, it will cause the Marriott points to expire. As long as you get points by swiping your card or checking in during this period, or redeeming points, you can extend the expiration date of points.
Marriott points can also be exchanged for their own hotels (including Marriott / Ritz Carlton / SPG hotels). Generally speaking, Hotels with the lowest category are the most cost-effective. In this way, the value of Marriott points is about 0.7 points / point.
Marriott points can be converted into many air miles (without the need to hold Marriott related credit card), and the conversion ratio is 3:1.25 (and every 60K Marriott points will be sent 5K more air miles).
The recommended mileage is: Alaska Airlines (as), Japan Airlines (JL) (Oneworld), United Airlines (UA) (Star Alliance), American Airlines (AA) (Oneworld), all Japan Air (ANA, NH) (Star Alliance), Korean Air (KE) (SkyTeam), etc. In this way, the value of Marriott points is about 0.7 points / point.
To sum up, our comprehensive estimate for Marriott is about 0.7 cents / point.
