Do you mean transfer them back to anyone's SPG account? I don't see where you can transfer Marriott points to another account for free when not booking a reservations
so book a reservation

I currently have 67K SPG. I don't book hotels.
What would be my best resell value?
A package of 200k Marriott would only get me 55k UA, is that worth it?
What could I do to maximize my value?

Does anyone know of a current Tier 1-3 which is becoming a Cat 8?

Dan gave the Ritz Toronto as an example but that's becoming a Cat 7....

I gave the best possible examples.

Its all speculation at this point but @Dan speculated in his article that 1-3 would convert to a Category 7 and a Tier 4-5 would convert to a Cat 8

Correct, but he also said to tie the cert to a hotel which is going up so hopefully can switch around.

will they allow a Tier 7 certificate booking be switched to another Tier 7 booking location and another date?

Sorry if this has been discussed but does anyone have more information on the anniversary nights on the SPG card? My anniversary is in October so I should be eligible to get one but I havent been able to find when and where I can expect to see that night. Is it on my SPG account? How do I redeem it?

spg doesn't do a specific anniv night the same way that hyatt does. They just offer free nights with (less) SPG points, and they credit add'l stays each year towards gold status, etc...
