Marriott is now part of the American Airlines Aadvantage program (so you can once again earn AA miles when you stay at Marriott hotels). But the interesting (?) news to come from this is that you can now convert points from Marriott Rewards to AAdvantage miles.
The exchange rate is awful, but it may be useful if you need to top off your AA account and you have a few stray Marriott points sitting around:
10,000 points = 2,000 miles
20,000 points = 5,000 miles
30,000 points = 10,000 miles
70,000 points = 25,000 miles
140,000 points = 50,000 miles
I told you, it’s not good. But it may come in handy at some point…
