Do you think I can do a MR to SPG transfer and then get a 3:1 conversion to Marriott? Is the conversion worth it?

And OP, alteration to my prior rec. This is worth it in one situation and only one situation: the backdoor to SW companion pass

No, i have transferred to SPG in past, no fees then. Will transfer more today

So MR to Marriott 1:1 + fees? Definitely not

No fees but not worth it. Always go for airlines if you can, worst case SPG

Aren't there small fees for converting MR?

That's where I was headed. I have moved from an AA hub to another city and want to expand my non AA flying potential.

I'm in the UK, where there is a meaningful pay delta at the same level, and expect TC would be 20-25% more. I do feel like I'm paid pretty well as it is. My typical hours are 55-60, with occasional peaks at 70. (Continued below)
