Anyone convert their Marriott points to Airline miles for flying international (Asia)? Is it worth the points? Did you have to pay any fees on top of the points?

Marriott is a 3:1 conversion ratio, I’ve found this to be a fairly bad conversion almost every time I’ve looked into it

I have 200,000 Marriott bon voy points, I thought about it for a second because I just use Airbnb now, but the 3 to 1 point conversion is too awful of a rate so I’m just going to splurge on hotel instead.

It depends. If you convert 60K points you get 20K miles + 5k bonus. Aeroplan has 30% conversion bonus going on. So you get another 7.5K for a total of 32.5K for 60K bonvoy points making the ratio better than 1:2. Marriott points are ~0.8cpp. International business is usually 2-3cpp for miles. So net on a per point basis you can come ahead through conversion rather than using at Marriott. So it also depends. You can also look at vacation packages for cash + miles.

Converted 82,500 points to 32,500 JAL miles (with the 5000 bonus). This equated to a one-way trip in premium economy from BOS to NRT (Tokyo). Definitely some sweet spots here if you know where to look!

Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.

Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??
