It can be difficult to hit the spend with a lower limit, but fortunately Amex will allow you to make multiple payments. Just don't miss out because those points are extremely valuable! After the spend, you could turn it into 84,000 Marriott points (essentially enough for a weekend at a Cat 8/9, 5 nights in a Category 4, 17 nights in a Category 1 with a Points Saver, etc...). With a little work and timing, you could turn that into a $2,000 award redemption for $3,000 spend. Or you could get 25,000 SkyMiles and still have 8,000 Starpoints left. So many possibilities!
As for winter, I usually don't mind. I can deal with the snow, but Boston usually isn't sub-zero and that has been brutal the past 2 weeks!
Cool! I didn't know the points transferred that well over to Marriott, I was originally planning on transferring to Delta but I may change my mind.
Yeah the temperatures suck, I'm actually in Boston as well and the -25 degree wind chill had me camping out inside
The best part of the current Marriott/SPG situation is the 3:1 Starpoints to Marriott Rewards conversion, and the fact that the SPG earns more Marriott Rewards points than any of the Marriott cards (and 15 points per $ for airfare with Amex Platinum). And status matching, of course.
Where do you look for "featured", or "preapproved" offers when you are signed into your Amex Account?
Edit: and of course @Mrmikenikes beat me to it!
I have been getting this response for days. Does that mean I don't have any offers? I have a few "pre-quals" when I use their link.

Must be my work computer, I tried from my mobile phone and got 3 cards. All say "expanding...."
I do have a "pre-qualified" offer that I am interested in when I look for pre-quals. Delta Gold Amex with 35,000 points after the 1st $1,000 spend. Just received my PRG and it's only 25,000 points after $2K.
