It seems referrals aren't limited to the specific card you have anymore. Is this old news?

Fairly recent but already talked about everywhere.

Has anyone been successful getting the 100,000 Marriott bonus for the SPG business card after having gotten the 3oK signup bonus in the past?

I have spent hours over the past few months reading here about the SPG/Marriott merger but I still don't know what to do with my SPG card. It's my main card but I'm looking for a new one and whats the best thing to do now with starpoints.

Received strange email today saying Amex messed up on awarding me points from purchase(s?) on my SPG Biz card, which I haven't used since they devalued the program. No details were given.

So I went and chatted with an agent, and while she couldn't give me details about which purchases were affected, apparently I'm getting an extra 16k,209 points when my current statement closes.

Anyone else have something like this happen? I can't even figure out how to navigate to the part of the website where I can see how many points they give me for each transaction (only a summary on the monthly statement).

I wonder if this is a personal glitch or if there are shenanigans for more people's accounts...

Same here. I did use it, but don't think I earned those points. I had a case a few months back where I audited my MR account and found 30k points missing. Had fun with that one...

Online purchase?
I thought only by purchasing at a hotel. Anyone had success with online purchasing and received the credit?
