I have 51k in marriott points so missing 9k to get the 5k bonus in aeroplan. Is it worth it to buy the extra marriott points for 112.50USD for 9000 Points?

Or just give up the 5k bonus and transfer it, as I don't stay at marriott usually. Just got the points through credit cards.

Thanks for the suggestions.

If you are short of a few Marriott points, you can transfer some MR or MR-S (from cobalt) to Marriott.

In general, never transfer MR to marriott.

The best way to use MR is transfer 1 to1 to aeroplan.

MR Canada is in the fortunate position of having 1 to 1 transfer ratio to aeroplan.
Compare this to MR USA, which is harder to earn but still transfers to aeroplan 1 to 1.

@xx1what just to confirm, I sent the transfer yesterday, but only just got an e-mail from Marriott today that they are processing the transfer... do I still qualify for the 35% bonus you think? My account was already deducted 60k yesterday as soon as I sent the transfer.

If 35% doesn't show up in 6 weeks, you can contact aeroplan with your marriott activity history.

But technically speaking, as long as my transfer date shows June 26 on my Marriott activity history, I should be eligible, correct?

Yes, this should be true. I have received all my base points in aeroplan already. Took about 2 days to transfer from Bonvoy to Aeroplan. I'm just waiting for the bonus pts to show up.
