Marriott Rewards introduced a new airline partner this week with which members can directly deposit points from their stays, convert points to miles, or select a Travel Package transfer option.
Korean Air frequent fliers can now earn or convert their Marriott Rewards points to SKYPASS miles.
You can access the Marriott Rewards Travel Packages page here.
Marriott Rewards members can deposit miles to Korean Air after each of their stays per the table below:
Two (2) SKPASS Miles per $1 US spent on qualifying hotel charges at the following brands:
- JW Marriott®
- Autograph Collection® Hotels
- Renaissance® Hotels
- Marriott Hotels®
- Marriott Vacation Club®
- Delta Hotels by MarriottTM
Two (2) SKYPASS Miles per $1 US spent on room rate only at the following brands:
- The Ritz-Carlton®
- Gaylord Hotels®
One (1) SKYPASS Mile per $1 US spent on room rate only at the following brands:
- Courtyard by Marriott®
- AC Hotels by Marriott®
- SpringHill Suites by Marriott®
- Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott®
- Residence Inn by Marriott®
- TownePlace Suites by Marriott®
- Marriott Executive Apartments®
- MoxySM Hotels
- Protea Hotels by Marriott®
Members can also convert points to miles per the following schedule (access here):
Or convert points to air + hotel travel packages per the table below (access here):
It is always good to have more partners where one can transfer or convert hotel loyalty program points to.
Having Korean Air as a direct deposit partner makes very little sense as does converting points. My personal favorite way of using Marriott Rewards points is to use them for Travel Packages at category 1 – 5 hotels and by choosing the highest available miles component.
