    …and it's worth mentioning that you can now convert Starwood points to Marriott points at a rate of 1 to 3, which makes it tempting as it's ever been to collect and hoard Marriott points! You can easily pick up Starwood points via AMEX Membership rewards points (all cards convert AMEX MR points to Starwood at a rate of 1 to 0.5, - even the lesser 'Gateway' scheme, which is offered for the Explorer card).

    For the 110,000 points you can currently pick up when you sign up to the Explorer Card: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/262944 you'll net 55,000 Starwood points, which in turn converts to 165,000 Marriott points.

    For 160,000 Marriott points, you can pick up 5 nights accommodation at a hotel like the JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa (http://www.jwvenice.com/en/) or at the Cotton House Hotel Barcelona (http://www.hotelcottonhouse.com/). These hotels command over 350 euro a night in peak season.

    Closer to home, you could score 7 nights at the Bangkok Marriott Sukhumvit: https://www.marriott.com.au/hotels/travel/bkkms-bangkok-marr...

    But IMO, it's worth hoarding and collecting Marriott points long term to aspire for a 7 night travel package award - as covered by Point Hacks just today: http://www.pointhacks.com.au/marriott-spg-aadvantage-transfe...

      Am new to Hotel rewards, have focused way too much on Airlines tbh.

      Anyway, can we transfer points between family members in Marriott or SPG?

      Cheers

        Yes, you can transfer up to 30,000 SPG and 50,000 Marriott per year between family members (for SPG, you must have resided at the same address as the transferee for 30 days before transferring - not sure about the intricacies of Marriott).

        So if, say, you and your partner both apply for the Explorer card and each get the 110,000 AMEX MR bonus points which can be transferred to 55,000 SPG points, one partner could transfer up to 46,666 SPG points to the other using both schemes - getting you close to a 270k 7 night and 120,000 American Airline Miles Marriott reward package, or the ability to redeem a lesser one (see: http://www.marriott.com/rewards/usepoints/morepack.mi).

          Exactly the info I needed mate. Cheers. Nice blog by the way!

          @dazzywazzy: Thanks. Good luck with your redemption! Other things worth mentioning: 1) you can redeem for a 270k point reward package, and then increase the redemption category later on when you have more points, simply by phoning Marriott. 2) The travel package is valid for a year, but you can ring Marriott up and extend it out for a further year if required.

        You can transfer Marriott points between members. They do not have to be family.

        "Points Sharing
        Feeling generous? Now you can share your points with any Rewards member you choose.

        You can transfer 1,000 points or more—up to a maximum of 50,000 points per year—for a transaction fee of just $10 USD. Gold and Platinum Elite members transfer for free.

        Please contact Marriott Rewards Customer Support at 1-801-468-4000 to start sharing."

      Far out that 7 night travel package is damn good value.

      • +1 vote

        Yep, and even better at the moment, as there is a 20% bonus on American Airlines miles transfers - so the 120k mile option will actually net you 144k miles - that's enough for 3 x business fares to most of Asia on Qantas metal (with far less taxes than Qantas charges), 2 x first class fares to Tokyo with JAL, or a one way first class redemption to Europe with a Oneworld carrier - again with minimal taxes when compared with QF.

      I'm assuming you need to complete a paid stay (i.e. not a redemption stay) to pick up the bonus points?
