How to Transfer Marriott Bonvoy Points to American AAdvantage

You can transfer Marriott Bonvoy points to American Airlines AAdvantage at a rate of 3 Marriott points to 1 AAdvantage Mile.

For example, 10,000 Marriott points convert to 3,333 American Airlines miles.

But you can score an even better deal by transferring in increments of 60,000 points, which gets you a 5,000 airline mileage bonus, which lowers the transfer rate to 2.4 Marriott points to 1 American mile.

For example, 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points convert to 25,000 AAdvantage miles.

Typically, transfers from Marriott to American AAdvantage take about 48 hours to complete, so be aware of this delay when booking travel.
