Would you prioritize SPG or MR points to transfer to ANA?

    If you had equal amounts of SPG and MR points, what would you prioritize in spending first to transfer to ANA for a single J award (85k points)?

    I know SPG has the 25% bonus, but the points also take longer to transfer to ANA… I heard that MR points are more valuable, so I might want to liquidate SPG points first (I don't use SPG hotel redemptions that often anymore).

    Moderator, please feel free to move this post into a more appropriate thread if needed - though I couldn't find an SPG/MR hybrid thread.

    Personally, I value SPG points more than AMEX points. The transfer partners with SPG are much better (imo), so I'd use the AMEX points before the SPG points.

    Jim, Thanks for your insight. I hear Amex points transfer to ANA almost overnight - is that true in your experience?
