SPG/Marriott points. Am I missing something?
« on: May 16, 2018, 02:53:02 PM »
Purchased 20k points for $500 after reading Dans Deal  post. This converts to 66K Marriott points . For the Marriott Cat 9 hotel I am booking it is 40K or $230 per night.   For my $500 I get 2 nights yet the same $500 in points only gets me one night. Am I missing something?

Use the points when the hotel is $1,000 a night. Not when it's $230 a night.

Any way to earn Marriott points easily right now?
I am facing a deadline of May 20, 2018  then my points expire.

I was thinking of that. But was not sure about their expiration policy.
I am currently Gold at both through AMEX Platinum. Does that matter?
Thanks
