    I have an spg gold [from amex plat] while my wife has a large amount of spg points, but she is spg preferred not gold,
    would we be able to get the upgrades from my gold, and then pay with points from her spg card although its two different accounts? or I can only pay with points from the card who's name was used to make the reservation [in my case my gold card] ?
    i've heard its possible to merge to spg accounts, is that correct?

    It is my understanding that as long as you have the same mailing address you can transfer points betwen accounts. Please do not expect to get many upgrades as SPG Gold.

    You cannot "merge" accounts under two different names.

    You can probably do anything just by calling. I believe you must have the same address for 30 days. So change it now and start counting.

    Transferring points from one account to another is trivial and easy - as long as the addresses are the same for at least the past 30 days. Surnames/last names have never mattered as far as I have experienced. 30 days is all that seems to count for SPG.

    It does not matter hat addres Aex has. It does matter that 2 accounts have the same address in SPG profiles to complete a transfer of points from one to another.
