Re: Best redemption for MR

The hotel and airline you listed primarily works with chase. That being said, I think its a pretty bad idea to transfer MR or UR to Marriott. You probably would be better off getting their cards directly, ESP if you fly / stay with them a lot. Maybe others can chime in.
JPMorgan Palladium (100k), AmEx Platinum (NPSL), AmEx SPG (46k), AmEx BCP (42k), Chase Sapphire Preferred (47k), Citi Prestige (31k), Citi Thank You Preferred (27k), Citi Executive AAdvantage (25k), JPMorgan Ritz-Carlton (21k), Merrill+ (15k), US Bank Cash+ (22.5k), Wells Fargo (12k), Bloomingdale’s (12.4k), Chase Freedom (5k), Discover IT (5k).
