I don’t even have SPG as a transfer partner on my account. Do some people have different transfer options than other people?
You have to link it to your account
Captain Hook, I’m confused how to link them.
Inside me transfer partners
Where is this banner showing up? On your main account page or inside the MR travel transfer pages?
I don’t see this offer, so I added my SPG as a linked transfer partner in hope of triggering this soon.
Are you recommending this transfer of AMEX to SPG and comment on ways to get Southwest Companion Pass using SPG points without going the Marriott 5 day plan. Is transfer to Hyatt worth doing to get an additional 40000 SWA points if you choose not to apply for a second Chase SWA card. I got the 50000 point business card and am concerned they will give me a hastle applying for a personal card.
