Not on this forum.
Sorry. Pretty new to the points game. Not trying to buy on forum. Trying to piece together a Korean Air flight. Only way to get them is transferring Marriot points at 3/1 rate right? TIA :) :)

Will transferring to BA leave a negative IB balance? I also have 96k debating whether to transfer or just risk booking a domestic ticket that I might end up cancelling and losing the points.

Question is what happens if you have a negative balance?

I thought with these promo IB Avios that you had to book by 12/1 and you can't cancel or change dates? Can you cancel if you book on Iberia?
