Anyone know if “green choice” of 500 SPG points is still 500 or went up to 1500?

As well as how they should give triple night credits (12?) with the spg cards now.

Same here, but they were not tripled. Statement closed on August 3rd with $34,150 spend and 34,150 points posted to Marriott.

Worth getting? Not sure if I want to take a spot on 5/25 when I’m like 3/24 now.

@Dan you signing up?
Good question.
The value proposition is definitely suspect.

I assume some was to be double and some tripled.

My loyalty points were posted 1:1 as was my Amex card spend. Hopefully it’ll be fixed

All my spending was from before August 1, it should have all been tripled.

If anyone applies please let me know if they pull or they go off side inquiries.
Applied and it’s pending. Recon said they will call me back shortly with an update. They pulled my credit even though they pulled like 2 weeks ago for the aspire :(.

So pathetic that a $450/year card doesn't have better spending benefits.
this practically a copy of the ritz card right now, except that ritz is airline travel whereas this is limited to spg hotels

So if I've never gotten either card would it be better to just get the Ritz?

And Chase doesn't do travel clawbacks.
And Ritz used to give a nice status level at $10K and no longer does.

I don't know if its not possible at all but I asked a rep to hold a booking for me until all my points came in (i'm 8k short and know I'd be way over if all my amex points that usually come in on like the 20th of the month were there) and she said she couldn't do it, but who knows if that's because they can't seem to do much of anything with all the IT problems!
Interesting, i spoke to a spg rep and she told me that since not everyones points have been transferred she can hold my booking with a cc...

Got the ineligible warning... any chance of approval if I click through? Haven't found any DPs of people trying to click through the warning on this or other cards.
