Replacement AMEX Starwood card
The change effective 8/1/18 reduces the payback for each $ charged from 1:1 to 2:3, a 1/3 reduction.
What credit card mimics the AMEX Starwood with the ability to transfer points to many airline FF programs? I am looking for direct transfers to as many airline as possible on an at least a 1:1 basic.
Amex, Chase and Citi all have cards that transfers to airlines, many 1:1. It’s SPG that has the most airline partners.
Even after the change, transfers effectively are still 1:1, since 1 starpoint = 3 marriot points. You’ll still have a bonus as well. If anything, the new Marriott program is improving some transfers.
Sorry I couldnt find the OMAAT post about this – if someone does, please add the link!
