I checked the website and the Marriott branded credit card from Chase is currently offering only 30,000 points for sign-up. I would wait and keep checking for an increase to 50,000 points before applying for the card.

We have been waiting for Choice Privileges branded credit card by MBNA to increase their offer since its been around 8000 points. They now have a 8,000 point for first purchase and an additional 16000 points for staying at a Choice property and paying with your card. There is no annual fee for this card so I applied for a second card for business use and was approved by taking some of the available credit from my first card to create my second card.

I plan to redeem my points in Europe this fall and hope that they have the same point requirements as last fall when hotels across Europe were 8,000 - 10,000 points per night. Those wanting to use points can check the Choice website for current points requirements and also check the Hotel / Choice forum for extra info.

Instead of giving detailed description and/or link in this post, you had provided all the terms, gif and offer in wikipost itself, which took a lot of wikipost space. As you can see, this newly added offer took up about half of the wikipost space right now. Why not just put a summarative line with a hyperlink to your original post, aka post#26? I don't think we need gif file in any wikipost, do we? If gif is in any other post in any given thread, I don't see a problem.

I think it will be easier for readers to follow when reading wikiposts that contains only highlight and important links/info. If every detail is spelled out in wikiposts, instead of the referenced posts/threads, as time goes by and threads grow, wikiposts may become so big to take over the 1st page of a thread.
Great idea.
Do you think we should put in links to other threads about how to book awards, or is that not really "Canadian" specific?

I think it would be appropriate to list Canadian blogs and threads (like Canadian Kilometers, which is awesome); couldn't hurt to put in a couple of site links like how to book awards, etc.... that are ON those sites, or at least link from them. Gimme a minute and I'll create an example on the wiki. Thanks.

Sorry for pruning the amex image; gotta keep that wiki tight. Thanks

I don't see any problem with links to other threads as long as it fits the topic. I would think one of the goals/purposes for wikiposts is to provide pointers to threads where FTers discuss relevant topics.

Having said that, do you think this thread, "Milesbuzz: Canada", is about how to booking awards?

BTW, I have no tie with Canada and no horse in the game. You guys should decide what's best for this Canadian Milesbuzzing master thread.
