I have a question regarding United’s 30% + 10% bonus on transferring Marriott points to miles (United Promotions)  See TPG post for more details Earn a 30% bonus when transferring hotel points to United Airlines. My question is this - is there any reason NOT to do this if one has a lot of Marriott points in the bank? Can’t we always just change them back at 1:1 if we want to use them for hotel redemptions? What am I missing here?
