Sorry if this has been discussed before. Is it better to transfer Marriott points to SPG or from SPG to Marriott? Which one has better point value?

However if there is a property you are interested in reserving with points, you probably should book now, before the redemption rates change in August

It’s been discussed before. Doesn’t really matter. Use them were you want. They’ll be combined in a month anyway. Look at the new award chart released last week and make any properties that are increasing in cost (multiply the current SPG point cost by 3 for comparison purposes) before the new chart takes effect

M1 is correct. On 8/1 SPG goes into your Marriott bank at a rate of 1:3, which you can also do now.

Does not really matter

They’re identical conversions. Just 3:1

Get equity refreshes every year. Would it be smarter to cash out $15k-$20k of that to pay debt vs. a HELOC at ~5% given that will still require mthly payments

i use amex send and split very often but i’m a little confused on how it works! when people complete the request it’s reflected on the current statement balance. 200 @ rooftop, 5 ways = 40 each so 160 is taken out of the current statement balance due in a few weeks but that “200” is posted and due the following statement balance. i’m confused on why/how still responsible paying the 200 next month is it bc they adjust immediately on current bill?
