Marriott points transfer to airlines/Asiana
After the ‘merger’ the past couple weeks, I tried transferring Marriott points to Asiana several times. Each time I get a pop-up screen that says “Enjoy your flight, you’ve successfully transferred 60,000 points to miles to your Asiana account….” How do I know if a transfer actually is valid and goes through? A Marriott CSR said that feature wasn’t working properly yet but does anyone know if transfer to airlines is working?
How long has it been since your transfer? A blog post by the TPG team from earlier this year indicates it can take up to two weeks (14 days). A post last year from MileValue indicates the same thing.
Last I heard transfers weren’t working at all? But you should be able to call and they can verify if there are any pending transactions.
