First, let’s learn a bit about Marriott Rewards Club membership.

Marriott Reward Club Details

Point RedemptionMarriott Reward members enjoy earning points that can be used in a variety of ways. They have thousands of hotels, vacation resorts, and timeshares around the world.

  • Car rental
  • Travel packages
How to earn points
  • Room stays
  • Eating at Marriott properties
  • Signing up for a Marriott Bonvoy credit card through Chase. You will earn points with every purchase.

Marriott Rewards - Airline Miles

There are two different earnings programs within Marriott that members have to choose from. Members must select whether to earn regular points or airline miles. This makes a big difference when you use them. The good news is you can change your mind and go back and forth between the two. The difficulty comes when you have a bunch of points and miles, but not enough to do anything with either one without combining cash. There are different benefits to each program.

Each airline has its own rewards program. Many airlines have agreements with Marriott Rewards. Registering with Marriott Rewards to earn specific airline miles will usually qualify the member to receive all the benefits of the airline's program - but not always.

Here are a few airlines, including Southwest, and their agreements with Marriott:
