"Our customers spoke, and we listened," said Suzanne Rubin, President – AAdvantage Loyalty Program at American Airlines. "We designed this partnership based on feedback from our AAdvantage members to deliver the benefits they want.

With this partnership, joint members can choose to receive AAdvantage miles on qualifying transactions at 14 participating Marriott brands, including JW Marriott ®, Marriott Hotels ®, Renaissance ® and Courtyard by Marriott ®.  Depending on the property, Marriott Rewards and AAdvantage members can earn one to two miles per dollar spent on the room rate and two miles per dollar spent on all qualifying transactions.

"Choice and flexibility are extremely important to our members," said Ed French, senior vice president, Marriott Rewards. "This partnership gives our members who fly American the ability to earn AAdvantage miles when staying at the Marriott family of brands worldwide or to redeem their Marriott Reward points for airline miles on American."

Additionally, joint members can convert Marriott Rewards points to AAdvantage miles at the following transfer rate:
  • 10,000 points = 2,000 miles
  • 20,000 points = 5,000 miles
  • 30,000 points = 10,000 miles
