I need about 15,000 points in 3 months. Does anyone know if points can be transferred from Airlines or similar?
I could purchase the points if necessary.
I have never been able to convert air miles to points and am almost certin that you can not.
I think the easiest way for you to add the number of points that you want is to apply for the Marriott Credit Card. This give you 50,000 points after the first use.
You can buy up to 50,000 points per year. They cost $12.50 per 1000. The 15,000 points would cost you $187.50.
It's just my opinion, but I've never found purchasing points to be a very cost effective option. 15,000 points is a 1 night stay at a Catagory 3 property. I've found that it's more cost effective to pay the nightly hotel rate rather than to purchase points to use for hotel stays. When you compare the $187.50 cost for purchasing 15,000 points to the hotel nightly stay rate, I'm willing to bet that you would be money ahead to pay the nightly hotel rate.
