    Hi all,
    With SPG's current promotion, being able to buy 120000 Alaska miles + getting a free stay for +- 2100USD is pretty sweet. If, of course, there is a possibility to transfer the points.
    I could buy 30K myself, and let my family members do the same. According to the SPG site you can just transfer miles between your household and there doesn't seem to be a restriction, although Lucky posted about this and wasn't sure: http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2016/05/31/transferring-starpoints-between-accounts/
    Another option is to convert them into Marriott Points and transfer them. There is a limit of 50K, but you may exceed the limit when transferring for a specific redemption, which is the case.
    Has anyone done this and can he confirm any of this?
    Thanks!
