SPG Amex vs Chase Saphire Reserved

SPG Amex vs Chase Saphire Reserved

    What are your thoughts on SPG Amex vs using CSR while at Starwood properties?

    How does the point value compare at 2X SPG at their hotels vs 3X points on CSR?

    I’ve been so loyal to SPG Amex over the years I find it a challenge to remember to pull out my new CSR card.

    Well, Ben values SPG points at 2.2c I think and UR at 1.7 so it’s a 4.4% return on SPG vs. 5.1% for the CSR. It may come down to what you are going to use points for–if you need points for UR transfer partners or SPG partners. You could also use SPG for non-bonused categories and CSR for travel and dining.
