Marriott: 6pts per dollar x ~.8 valuation= ~4.8% for Marriott expenses, 1.6% otherwise
CSR: 3-4.5% (depending how you use the points) on all travel, 1.5% rest.
And remember that UR points are much more flexible than Marriott points.
So depends on how much you spend on Marriott in relation to the rest of your traveling expenses .

1) booked a cruise through them... did it through the phone so they were able to book through the site (celebrity cruises site) i was looking at and still apply the points at 1.5x
2) also booked car rental on the portal.. it was cheaper than any other site (national since I am emerald executive)
3) excursions (boat ride to culebra in PR and van ride with guided tour of el yunque) as it was same price as the website

Depends on how much you spend using your card for travel every year and how often you travel. The CSR gives you more but has a higher annual fee than the CSP. It’s only a no brainer if you spend a lot using the CSR.

What if I’m using it for Marriott properties every week while traveling for work

Doesnt compare... not at the same level the two cards... might be worth comparing to the new spg luxury card but even then csr comes out on top in my opinion

How do you use csr points? Through their redemption on random travel expense? Or transfer to Hilton?
