If others have tried this, what their experience has been.

So you're hoping someone has tried this, found a phantom flight, transferred points, tried to be accommodated, only for the rep to have suggested an alternative award on another carrier as opposed to reversing points transfer? Good luck.

Lol just hoping that someone who has actually tried the process themselves could give me more info about how it went. I'm not either taking it for granted that they'll agree to reverse the transfer

If there is a relatively similar award flight available on another carrier I would assume that they would tell me to book that one instead?
Correct.

Depends how quickly after shabbos you can leave.
Consider staying closer to EWR for shabbos?

I try not to post that kind of stuff after my IHG account was hacked by a seminar attendee.

It's definitely doable IMHO. I'd risk it for sure.
Of course that assumes the taxi is on time (probably should order it earlier and have him wait until then, make sure it's not a Jew), that there is no major traffic jam, etc.

How can someone hack from knowing what day you booked?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
