That's what I'm wondering; better return on spg points right?

I mean, points guy has SPG points worth 2.5¢, and Marriott at 0.7¢

Oh? You can status match but not transfer points?

I'm SPG to the end, so I see no reason to start diluting

I linked just to get a status match in case I have to stay at a Marriott property. But not transferring the points.

Oh really? Is there an article on that teslas60?

My question is more on airline transfer... SPG had really good rates there. Don't know if I should transfer to or from airline points right now, but I fell like I should go all in for something :s

@OP.. Yes.. You have to "choose" to transfer points after linking. It not automatic.

Here you go OP http://thepointsguy.com/2016/09/september-2016-monthly-valuations/

Thanks guys

Another thread in FB did the math on transferring the points to delta. Seems the value is very similar, just depends what you value more: fancy hotel nights or flights (2 fancy night compare to a flight to Europe)

Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done. As soon as I leave their office, I’m ignored. If I email/text them a question or request, I’m ignored unless it benefits them. This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.
