If people are saying Hilton is worth .3 cash, then yes, I think .5 on Amazon kicks that. Plus you can transfer MR to Hilton at 1-3 these days. So minimum value would no longer be Schwab 1.25, it would become 1.5 on Amazon. What wth buying groups, Amazon is as good as cash.

you don't have enough hilton then.

Interesting. Does Marriot still transfer 3:1 with a 5k bonus for every 20k LH? If so would be better for a broker to buy 126k MT under 0.6 vs buying LH over ~1.45? Just thinking out loud.

Would need the MT in the pax account cuz 3rd party LH from MT is worthless
