Can you pool points across different Marriott Bonvoy accounts?

Yes, you can pool points between different Marriott Bonvoy accounts, although each account is limited to sending 100,000 points per calendar year and receiving 500,000 points per calendar year.

Looking at Marriott’s Loyalty Program Terms & Conditions, Section 2.8 (“Transferring Points from One Account to Another”) outlines the nuances behind pooling points.

In this section, the amount of points which can be transferred to another member is specified as “100,000 Points per calendar year” and the receiving limit is specified as “500,000 Points per calendar year”.

Both accounts need to be in good standing and must be opened for at least 30 days, if qualifying activity has occurred (namely, earning or redeeming points). Transferring points does not count as qualifying activity, nor does earning points through social media programs. If no qualifying activity has occurred, the account must have been open for at least 90 days before points can be sent or received.

While Marriott Bonvoy points can be transferred between accounts, airline miles or elite qualifying nights cannot.

Points transfer can only be done over the phone. The sender should call Member Support and provide the recipient’s Marriott Bonvoy account number in order to initiate the process.
