A 7-night OC5 to NC5 should be 60K points. Not 45K or 65K. At least they are close and willing to do it. But I would look carefully at the wiki and make sure they are actually ordering the right...

it used to count with SPG, but two years have not passed since Amex started transferring directly to Marriott accounts (this started in August 2018), so nobody will have any 100% conclusive data....

As others have said, this is 100% nonsense. First of all, there is absolutely nothing illegal about accepting USD in canada, so I am perplexed why you keep saying this. In fact, the vast majority of...
