I happen to have 3.7k spg points.. can I use them for this?

You can get it transferred to your Marriott rewards from SPG. Well the only ways I can think of are - get a Marriott credit card and travel to high cost locations and stay at Marriott property. Alternatively I am guessing you can even purchase points like you can with airlines.

Yes 1 Spg point = Marriott so that'll get you to like 112

You can also transfer UA miles to Marriott points!

Get the credit card

Get the credit card for the 70k bonus

100k Marriott that's like 1 night at spg

I prefer JW over the Ritz. I've stayed at a lot of the Ritz and some are very disappointing. The service is always great but Platinum doesn't get the club lounge. JW has similar service standards and lounges, plus more modern than a Ritz.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
