ETA: IF you have an OC cert attached to a reservation at a hotel that has gone up in category you should not detach and convert the cert or you most likely will need to upgrade to the higher new category to reattach. In this case I would ask the rep to gift 30k points to compensate. I am not sure it that would work but it is worth a try.
If you hold a Category 6, 8, or Tier 1-3 legacy certificate, it's ideal to downgrade your certificate before converting so that points don't potentially get lost in the process.
that's what the wiki says - it's not clear you can only get the refund at the same time you convert OC to NC. What i was hoping is was to move the OC8 to an OC7 cert for the 30k refund first, and then convert to a NC5 later.
