    You answered this 2 yrs ago with a blog but the value of SPG has now changed significantly since your reply. So given the value now, would your answer change?

    I signed up for (& was approved for) the SPG Amex Business CC. Given the choice of 5% cash back or 2 extra Membership Rewards points for eligible OPEN savings. Assuming one can only choose either option once per year, what’s are your thoughts for which option to go with?

    I’m woefully behind in my reading but what makes you say that the value of SPG points has doubled?
