I’m at a Marriott post Starwood acquisition and noticed that they’ve adopted “Make a Green Choice” for 500 points. Given the 1:3 conversion of MR:SPG, shouldn’t they be giving 1500 points?

I’ve been a Marriott guy who recently stayed at an SPG. For Marriott, the Green Choice is like 10% of your points earning, but for SPG it’s like $30-50%. That’s pretty nuts

Some Marriotts have done this prior to SPG and I've always experienced it at 500 points a night, think they made the option more readily available after SPG merger, not sure if they had anything to do with one another since they haven't combined programs yet so maybe when they're fully integrated either Marriott goes up or SPG goes down.

The Marriott I’m at this week is 500 points per night. A standard week would net 1500 points

Does anyone have any experience with the United Chase Explorer card? Does the free checked bag apply to international flights (specifically to Europe)? If I book basic economy, would I still get that checked bag + a carry on? How does seat selection work on basic? What priority boarding group is associated with this card? I’m assuming the card alone will not make you eligible for upgrades, does the united club card do this? The explorer card is pretty cheap annually, but is this even worth it?

This is more of a cash back card question, not points. I’m looking to BT onto a nee card and considering the Citi Double Cash or the Discover It card. Citi would be best long term for the 2% back, but the Discover card matches all rewards in the first year. Tough choice, thoughts?
