    Let's try to list the conversion rate of other loyalty program's points to JMB miles.

    Priority Club: 10,000 points to 2,000 JMB miles
    HHonors: 10,000 points to 1,000 JMB miles

    what else?

    Edit:
    Rakuten: 2 points to 1 JMB mile
    SPG: 20,000 points to 25,000 JMB miles
    Hyatt Gold Passport: 5,000 points to 2,000 JMB miles

    Anyone know the Hyatt Gold Passport rate? Seems like I need to register to find out the conversion rate.

    PS: This is the 100th post on JMB forum :D

    Thanks! So far Hyatt has the best conversion rate but too bad they don't have a dining reward program :(

    Actually, I think Priority Club might be better because it is so insanely easy to get stupid points from their program. I got 14,000 points from a $50 stay in January, whereas it took five nights and over a thousand dollars to get 14,000 Hyatt points...

    And I think Rakuten, when you are paying with the JAL Card, is by far the best conversion rate [​IMG]

    SPG is 1:1, with a 5,000 mile bonus if you transfer 20,000 points (ie 20,000 points -> 25,000 miles)

    Ah that's the one fumitani told me about. Too bad still no dining reward. Only priority club and HHonors have that :(

    Seems like SPG is the best deal out there but unfortunately their credit card is an amex :(

    You should get an SPG credit card then you would be set for JAL even too. I think there is a direct conversion option too for 1,000 points per stay for either JAL or ANA at SPG hotels.
