Buy SPG point and household transfer
Hello, we are 3 persons in my household and we got 25, 30 and 35% targeted bonus on SPG buy promotion. I was wondering if I can buy for myself and gift to other 2 persons in my household with 35% bonus? and later transfer from their accounts to my account? Is it possible?
I think you can buy and gift the points but the transfer may be an issue: [URL]http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2016/05/31/transferring-starpoints-between-accounts/[/URL]. Although we are pretty close to the end of the year so if you can buy and gift one set of points, you should be able to transfer them in January if you can wait for a couple of months.
Got it. 30K limit is calendar year so I can buy one set of points now and will be able to get one more set next year if they sell points again on discount price?
Correct. You could also do the gift now and transfer after the new year I think.
