Aug 1st is quickly approaching. For 🐠 that have points on both, any action to take? I heard Marriott flight + hotel packages will go up in price. Better to get the 7 night voucher and miles before ?

What’s the seven night voucher? 😳

Not sure if August 1 is the day. I believe it is sometime in August they have not disclosed it yet.

Wow was also wondering if this was a good deal. A friend just told me about it

We only have a few days bro... The 7 nights voucher must be redeemed within a year or something right

You can easily call and get them to extend it for another year if it’s about to expire. In regards to the main point, there are expected to be winners and losers from the conversion. Not all certs are expected to be more valuable. I don’t think the base cert is expected to be different, but it varies as you go up in categories.

One last item, you can always call and upgrade your category with more points, but I don’t believe you can downgrade and get a refund.

Any Marriott/Ritz stay I think I might make in the next 12 months using points has been reserved. Moved my Marriott points into SPG to make reservations, so I don’t actually have to lay the points out now.

Not sure if it's just me but reward stays through Marriott all seem more expensive (more points needed) in future months

@SC1 - could be location dependent. all the places we typically stay at have the same redemption values we’re accustomed to.

I am starting a new job that will require a lot of travel. I currently have the chase freedom flex (downgraded from preferred 2.5 years ago) and Amex blue cash, never use the Amex.

I have the Sapphire Reserve (it seems I'm supposed to refer to it as the CSR here). And I have always been resistant to juggling multiple cards. But as my grocery spend increases I'm suddenly aware of this whole pairing concept.

Is it accurate that if I get the free Flex Unlimited I can get 5% on groceries (for a year), 3% on drugstores, and 1.5% on everything else, AND I can transfer those points to my CSR account and effectively get 7.5%, 4.5%, or 2.25% back on my spend?
