Looks like American Airlines is getting in on this game too. This post goes along with my previous ones about using Marriott Hotel + Air packages as a means to acquire miles with Southwest and/or United Airlines. With American Airlines, you would redeem 270,000 Marriott Rewards points or 90,000 SPG Starpoints to receive 7 nights in a Category 1-5 Marriott hotel and 144,000 American AAdvantage miles (120,000 miles + 24,000 bonus miles).
Personally, I still favor Southwest Airlines because you’d be earning a Companion Pass. Anyway, if you’d like to take advantage of this promotion with American, you must complete your transfer by November 14, 2016.
