U earn so many more points with spg

like

100 dollar stay at spg for 400 pts which converts to 1200 marriott pts. 100 dollar stay at marriott as platinum gets 1000 points + 500 bonus.(unless it is a residence inn or towneplace or extended type stay property) and your status is recognized on both sides and can transfer pts back and forth for optimal use so just do some math based on the price you get to decide. Also if you can pay for it with spg amex that nets you additional pts too.

like

no, dont get the marriott card, get the spg card....2 pts per dollar spent at marriott property X 3 when transfer = 6 marriott pts per dollar instead of 5 when using the marriott visa...

like

Green stays get you a lot more value at SPG as a bonus.

like

...my project ends, or should I just go with Marriott for the whole year?

Just make sure you re qualify for Platinum at one or the other, assuming you don’t have lifetime Platinum status.

You can transfer the points over to spg. Basically evens out

Why does it require staying at a Marriott? Technically SPG/MI same thing Also get the Marriott card for more points per dollar

Credit card doesn’t make a difference in my case. @A1 how do you get 1000 points when plat staying at Marriott?

everybody gets 10 pt per dollar, then plat you get 50% bonus equals 1500 total

I need some help navigating a conversation with my boss. I have been with our brand for 7 years (been with the same boss) but just came up on my 1 year anniversary with our corporate office last week. I had my review and received 4 out of 5 points. I received zero salary increase because I got a $2,000 bump earlier this year after they terminated an employee and I took on some additional tasks. Is it wrong of me to still think I should have received an additional bump?
