Does it make sense now to transfer Amex MR into SPG ? (thinking 100 MR will be 500 spg but at the end it can be 1500 marriott points) Worth it?

if you can turn 100 MR to 500 SPG I would definitely do that

Might want to double check this part..
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

-1
1000 Membership Rewards points = 333 Starpoints
+1

So when you transfer MR-SPG, and then SPG-Marriott, you're essentially getting 1 Marriott per MR (terrible value).
