YOU should be able to get minimum 1.3
Dude, your rates are always higher than what brokers are paying. Find me 1 broker paying more than 1.3 for chase.

What's everyone's opinions on the value of SPG/Marriott in the near future?
There are so many factors, both positive and negative affecting supply and demand

Possible big signup bonuses
Becoming much harder to earn from spend
Transferring to airline miles won't be lucaritive
Travel packages devalued
But.... an INSANE chart for top tier properties till 2019
And more I'm missing
BUMP
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.
