Amex Marriott Points Transfer Offer 2023: Get 30% extra Points till 15th Dec

By | November 16, 2023

Every year we eagerly anticipate on the Marriott Bonvoy points transfer offer with American Express Credit Cards in India, as that boosts the point value from average 50ps to 65ps and of-course much more on select properties in select season.

It’s a wonderful offer for those who know the game. Here are the offer details,

Offer Details

OfferGet 30% extra points on transferring Amex MR Points to Marriott Bonvoy.
Min. Points to transfer100
Max. Points to transfer9,00,000 in a calendar Year
Offer period16 Nov – 15th Dec 2023
FulfilmentUsually instant but can take upto 48 Hrs

That’s a neat & simple offer just like the 2022 points transfer offer, which should fetch you 30% more Marriott Bonvoy points.

It definitely continues to be the “offer of the year” with Amex.

I just went ahead and redeemed some points and the bonus points along with the regular points got credited to Marriott Bonvoy INSTANTLY just as expected.

Note: Offer email is yet to be triggered for all. If you haven’t received yet, consider calling up Amex (or) do test transfers before doing a big one.


While I was not expecting to have the 30% bonus this year as they were running the offer on alternative years in India, it’s good to see the offer for 2023. So if you’re into Marriott, load your Marriott Bonvoy accounts from Amex to save 30% on redemptions with your upcoming stays.

That said, I hope these Marriott Bonvoy points transfer offers comes to Axis Bank points transfers as well someday except that not many would be interested in it as there are many other better partners to transfer Axis points. Anyway, let’s see when that happens!

    Wow! This is amazing!

    I remember the first offer in 2019 October.

    Then, during the covid offer was available in almost every country where Amex was present except India.

    After 3 years they brought back this offer last year.

    Even I thought they wont bring back this offer again this year, damn!!!!!!! I already transferred points…. I missed it, feeling low now 😕

  2. Abhi

    Yes it worked. Didn’t get notification of the offer yet, nor does the offer show anywhere in my Amex account. But a trial transfer of 100 Amex RPs is indeed reflecting 130 pts in my MB account.

  3. Abhi

    I wasn’t aware that even Platinum Travel card gives 1:1 transfer to MB. All this while I thought only Taj voucher at 0.50 was the best available option with PT. Just did a trial on PT to MB and it worked, 100 Platinum Travel points got converted to 130 MB points. So RPs of all my 3 cards – Plat, Plat Travel and MRCC can be converted to 1.3 MB points. Tried and tested!!

  4. Rags

    is there any max number of transactions that one can do, during the promo period? Do i need to register before? I have 8 lac points across 3 cards 🙂

    1. Siddharth Post author

      No, you shall move in tranches of ~1L or so in multiple txns without issues.

  5. Aayush

    How much would we value 1 Marriott point in terms of rupees? For Taj it is 0.5 rupees. 1 Marriot point is not equal to 1 rupee when it comes to conversion. Would like to know from people who use this regularly.

    1. Siddharth Post author

      50ps to 2Rs
      Dynamic, totally depends on what you value in hotels and the tier you hold.

    1. Siddharth Post author

      Amex points are valid for 2 Yrs from the latest activity (like stay, points to miles transfer, etc).

    2. Abhi

      2 yrs from last activity. Includes point transfers such as from Amex or ITC to MB.

  6. Sarvajit Sankar

    I have few questions, wanted your opinion –
    1. I got an offer to upgrade my platinum travel to Platinum Metal with 1.15L points. Should I take it? Considering I do have other cards like Axis Reserve, Axis Vistara Infinite etc. Hence Amex isn’t the most rewarding for the fees I am paying. I don’t see myself spending a lot with Platinum Metal considering other cards I have, hence am worried of poor retention offer next year
    2. Is there a way we can keep 2 charge cards (Platinum and Gold) along with MRCC and Platinum Travel? I was told only 1 charge and 2 credit cards can be owned. But, have you seen people owning both charge cards?

    1. Siddharth Post author

      1. Good one if you value MR points either for Marriott or United along with card benefits.
      2. Yes, can have both charge cards at a time. 1 charge card rule is a soft rule as of now.

      1. Sarvajit Sankar

        Thank you for replying. Do you recommend the upgrade though? Not considering the MR points, but more on I don’t foresee much spends on this card. Will I be given good retention offer?

        1. Siddharth Post author

          Historically the card is never a good one for ongoing spends. But retention depends on spends and hence for those who don’t use the card linked benefits much, it’s usually good for first year.

          1. Anshul Kothari

            If we apply immediately and spend 50K on the first day of the receipt of card, approx. how many days later will be getting the 1.15L MR points? Asking as I want to convert under the 30% offer.. thx

          2. Siddharth Post author

            They usually fulfil the signup offer in ~2 weeks for fresh application, not sure of upgrade offer. This is tough is say anyway, better to get confirmation from support and then proceed accordingly.

          3. Sarvajit

            Should one go ahead with 1.15L points offer or should we ask Amex team to get better offer(1.25L)? They said they can’t do anything on giving additional points (1.25L).

          4. Siddharth Post author

            Amex don’t negotiate with upgrade offer as it’s system designed and it keeps changing from time to time.

      2. Anshul

        Can we hold both gold and platinum charge cards together? Amex customer care denies and says one can hold only one charge card at a time. What is this soft/hard rule concept?

  7. Mayank

    Is this better value than the 24 carat gold collection redemption options on the gold charge card?

    1. Siddharth Post author

      Because 65ps vs 58ps. That’s only a minimum.

      Some may extract 1.3Rs vs 58ps or even more. It’s a wonderful offer for those who know the value of Marriott points or United miles.

  8. Pranav kumar

    I transferred 92500 points and got 30% immediately on marriott. It happened on 17th November 2023.

  9. Prashant Gautam

    Hi Siddharth,
    I have received an emailer from American Express stating that the email communication related to the 30% bonus point is still not live and a new communication will be rolled out soon.
    Did you tried to transfer the points and getting 30% bonus on the total Bonvoy points?

    1. Siddharth Post author

      That clarification email was related to some other offer. Marriott 30% is active.

    Correction to our Communication Sent on 16 November 2023 regarding Marriott Bonvoy offer

    On 16 November 2023 at 2 PM, we sent you an offer communication regarding Membership Rewards® point transfer with Marriott Bonvoy. This communication also mentioned the “Reward Xcelerator Offer”, which is not currently live. We will provide you with complete offer details closer to the offer’s launch. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your understanding.

  11. Sudheer

    I received the Amex platinum offer with 1,15,000 welcome reward points. I applied the card on 15’th Nov, received the call from Amex on 16’th, card dispatched on 17’th and received the card on 18’th Nov. very quick and prompt service by AMEX. 😊

    1. Sarvajit

      Congrats @Sudheer,
      Which card did you upgrade from?
      Were you asked to provide income proofs?
      When was the last time you applied for any amex card?

      1. Sudheer

        Sarvajit, I got the upgrade offer on my Platinum travel card. No income documents are being asked since it was pre-approved offer. I still continue to use the existing Platinum travel card after new platinum card is issued. Last time I got the platinum card in 2020 (new card application, not through upgrade offer) and cancelled it after 1 yr.


    @anshul Kothari .
    The 1 lakh points will credit in 2 weeks after upgrade card is delivered . The bonus 15k points will come later based on spends .

  13. Alok

    I trf 50000 points and immediately it reflected on Marriot with 15000 Bonus points.

  14. Suresh

    Once we transfer points to Marriott and cancel the card, will the points be still active for next 2 years? For Taj vouchers they said I need to hold my Amex card and can’t cancel for the Taj vouchers to stay active for a year. So want to use this opportunity instead. Please help.

  15. Bhavin Shah

    I have also received upgrade offer with 115000 points and would like to take advantage of trf to bonvoy with 30% extra. But as suggested by Siddharth, i asked for their confirmation on credit timelines of these welcome bonus point and they are non-committal on that. They just maintain TAT of 6 to 8 wks.

  16. Amit Thakur

    Dear Siddharth,

    If I have never used my bonvoy membership till date, and never stayed in a marriot hotel till now , am I still eligible to transfer and use marriot points like regular users like you ?

    I have already signed up for marriot membership.

  17. Puja Pratihasta

    Do we have breakfast/dinner inclusive bonvoy stay redemptions option ?

    Those who have used may kindly reply.

    If not can we use points to pay for food and facilities available at the property ?

  18. Pulkit jain

    Would you suggest transferring all the points to marriott through this offer?
