Now that it's August, is is better to continue to use an SPG Amex card and receive 2X SPG points on regular purchases, or the Marriott Card ?

I received an email about this offer: Book a 5-day, 4-night stay at The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort for just $319.
Is that legit?  Did anyone else?

Usually my points post on the 5th of the month, 2 days after statement closing. Anyone else experiencing delays in points posting from base spend on (consumer) SPG?
