Points are worth 1c each (at least). Once you put a minimum of $9K on the card, you’ve broken even.

TPG values MR points at 1.9¢ each, so you really need less than $5k spend to break even. You're leaving money on the table if you dont

Unless u are local. It's worth it

Anyone got x2 base points from Bonvoy?

I made a “milestone stay” at Ritz in LA when I hit Titanium last month. While I was welcomed by some macarons and a personal letter, I wasn’t informed that the stay would double my base points (I spent $2k in room charge, which got me 40k base points instead of only 20k).

Is that a discretionary move by the property manager, by the Bonvoy team, a stated policy or just a technical glitch?

(of my last 6 years of travelling I never got x2 points)
