Hmmm. Should I transfer the 70k marriott points Im about to get???  Or use them... Don't think it's worth 30k AA or US points though...

Huh?
70k Marriott=84k AA or US.

Where do you see that. I think 20% bonus is on their typical conversion rates, not on a 1:1 rate. They have had higher (50%?) bonuses in the past

I just figured it was 1:1.

My bad.

1:1 alone from marriott would be amazing, let alone 1:1.2

I currently have almost 52k mariott reward points. I have no use for them as I rarely need to stay in a marriott hotel. what is the most lucrative way of using them for air travel? Should I take advantage of this 20% bonus or just convert them to avios or something?
