That's enough to stay at a Westin for SEVEN YEARS.

whoever this is would still need nine other years to get lifetime platinum status.

Pretty sure they just spent millions using an SPG Amex. No way you could get that number with hotel stays.

So 7 years at Westin plus green choice and whoop woop who's back in the game?

Would imagine there has to be more than 1 person who stayed at an spg every night of the year. Right?

like

Yeah 30M points is at least $6M spent at hotels plus bonuses, or maybe $15M spent on the card, so we're definitely talking about either a large group or a big spender

like

Or they organize events all year and get all the points from that plus their stays.

Yes @ACN3 the Amex is a common way to pay for things in USD without taking cash out of the country (more than a certain amount is illegal)... There are entire neighborhoods in LA paid for by Chinese buyers on Amex

like

how many nights is that?

It's all Amex card spend, probably an executive assistant or corporate accout

This needs a lot of fine tuning but thoughts on investing in hospitality stocks that are low now betting they won’t go out of business, Marriot, Hilton, Carnival (CCL) is riskier but so cheap now. It might take a year or two, especially cruise stocks, but thoughts on them going up eventually and cashing out.

Any advice on a personal credit card I should get? Credit and annual fee are non issues. Trying to decide between plat amex, boundless, chase reserve? Or just Costco lol? Marriott loyal but not airline loyal (mostly fly out of Sacramento so not as many options to stick with single airline). Biggest spending is on dinning, groceries, regular shopping, hotels. Trying to maximize statuses, lounge access, or if it doesn't make sense just cash back.
