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.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

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.

Applied and approved on the spot. They even gave me my card number so I can use it at my SPG hotel this weekend and get the $300 back right away.

Correct me if I am wrong, but all Marriott and SPG cards get 6X per Marriott and SPG stays so it would otherwise not matter which card is used?

Does the $300 credit on the Luxury card work similar to the Reserve in the sense that yu can get $300 back this year and then again in 2019 in the beginning of the year?
