transfered 31k to LM for a 31k flight, I forgot that I had 1k in there from testing it right when it was added as an MR partner. I feel like I will always have 1k in the account

So, I flew with my family home from Florida a couple weeks ago, and I totally forgot to add  myself as my wife's companion (she has sw companion pass). I realized it that morning when checking in everyone for the flight. I tried adding companion this morning and flight was sold out 😫. Quickly checked other options and didn't find anything good. Checked back sw and 1 seat appears, BH. Grabbed  it, bam.

just realized that I accidentally let my Marriott 7 Night Partial Package Category 1-5 Hotels expire. if you remember this came with the 90,000 SPG points transfer that gave the SW CP and the week at Marriott. it expired a week ago...on hold with them now. anything I can do? anyone experience this?
TIA

Putting a Hilton resort room rate on my Ascend card instead of Aspire.
