Points earned on the Amex SPG card are SPG points as opposed to other Amex cards like the Platinum which earn Amex Membership Rewards points (which can then be transferred to various partners at various rates that differ from partners SPG points can be transferred to)are AMEX points not as valuable as Chase UR? I've had the AMEX SPG card for a while now. Racked up over 200K points on it. But ever since the Marriott merger, all the hotels are so expensive, that I find myself not using the points. Im going to downgrade the SPG card and use this as my main card from now on. I wonder if AMEX is losing out on a lot of business because of this card
If you can't find hotels you want to redeem SPG points at they have a large number of airline transfer options and give a 5,000 bonus for each incremental transfer of 20k points. (Although there is a 24 hour limit on the amount you can transfer so the most you'd want to transfer in a day is 60,000
It does notAnyone know if the $300 travel credit carries over from year to year? I.e., if I don't use the $300 this year will I have $600 next year?
