Up until December, it was within one day for me. My January points did not post until 3 days before my February statement closing. My Feb points have still not posted. I imagine this will be the new norm for me as I have read similar stories elsewhere.

Anyone have both the Canadian and US cards and did they receive 30 nights towards status (15 x 2) or just 15?

I do, and only received 15 nights as announced by Marriott. I was not expecting any more than that.

But I did get 2 free night certificates.

I just got the business card and 15 nights arrived. When does the free night cert arrive though? Do I need to wait a year or will it come earlier?

The free night cert is only when you renew- ie a year from now.

Is the card worth having for the cat 5 cert, if I donít have any plans for the cert yet? We wasted a couple cat 1-3 cert before with the chase Marriott.

You won't even get the cert until after you've held the card a year. The sign up bonus is 60-61K depending on if a referral is used.

I think cat 5 certs are very useful. I redeemed both of mine at NYC properties, one of which was $369 and the other $450 if memory serves me correctly.

Cat 5 is reasonable, 35k points can get you a decent property in most major cities (Delta, Marriott, Sheraton, Westin, etc.)

Anyone know if you get 15 days for each SPG Amex card you hold, on the same loyalty account?

In other words, if you're looking to reach Gold or Plat, 15 days x 3 will get you there much faster....
