Okay, I guess it just depends on how you want to redeem points. I like to earn and redeem at high end properties.

Mid tier Marriott 25,000 points so 1 week to redeem, no double points or any promo 2 weeks (and they just released a promo starting next week).

Mid tier Hilton 45,000 (?) 1.45 weeks to redeem, no Hilton Amex is 1.8 weeks.

So assuming no promo at Marriott and a double points promo at Hilton, Hilton barely wins out.

Also, not sure what the “milestone” bonus you referring to. Hyatt has milestone bonuses but I’m not aware of anything for Marriott.

There should be a tax rebate for TAX payers. Our Pan and Adhaar is already linked so whenever we purchase anything we should get it without any extra tax. It should apply on everything including flight, railway, bus, cab, food items, groceries, clothes etc. We middle class working professionals are most extracted even before we get our salaries our tax is deducted. We pay taxes honestly and we deserve tax concessions.
