March 16 - AmEx Cardholders Can Get a 40% Bonus on Transfers to Hotel Partners

AmEx is offering a limited-time transfer bonus when cardmembers turn their American Express Membership Rewards into Marriott Bonvoy or Hilton Honors points. Every 1,000 AmEx Membership Rewards points will net 1,400 Marriott points or 2,800 Hilton points. Keep in mind that with NerdWallet's valuation of hotel and credit card points, Marriott and Hilton points are usually worth less than AmEx Membership Rewards, but this offer makes the transfer more favorable for people to book with hotel loyalty programs instead. Cardholders would be exchanging about $11 worth of AmEx Membership Rewards for $12.60 of Marriott points or $11.20 worth of Hilton points. The 40% bonus is valid on transfers through June 15, 2021. Terms apply.
