do you think you would get bonus for a transfer that you initiate during the eligible period, but doesn’t post until afterwards? didn’t see anything in the terms that answers that concern. a lot of these hotel program process their points-to-miles transfer requests very slowly.

My transfer posted in 4 days, so transfer soon and don’t worry about it. Also, it shows by transfer date if you look at post below, so I think they would give you the 35% bonus if posts after, but don’t know for use.

If I transfer 20k SPG, would I then get 25k from SPG going to BA, then 35% bonus stacked on top making 36,372 from 20k?

Yes.

Your math is wrong though. 35% on top of 25,000 is 33,750
