SPG card also earns 2x at marriott hotels.
This means that the SPG card now earns more marriott points per dollar than the marriott card. Interesting.
SPG comes out to the best between Marriott, Ritz, SPG BUT CSR Beats them all! (according to the points guy break down yesterday)
I saw a 4.8, 5.6, 6.4 or something like that depending on card and obviously where you use.
I'll add to this. Thru the end of the year marriot give double points at wholesale clubs.
So is there even a reason to have a Marriott Chase Card anymore? SGH gives 1 point for everyday purchases, so that's 3 Marriott points. SGH gives 2 points for Marriott purchases, so that's 6 points, vs the 5 you get from their own Marriott chase card. With the new 3 for 1 conversion, I am thinking about just canceling my Marriott card and getting a SGH Amex.
Is there any reason not to do this?
