Thanks - I think unfortunately there's quite a few of us in your boat (I have half a million KF points I wasn't expecting that I'm now hoarding) --- I agree re not dumping Marriott or QF points yet (thank goodness for M to airline transfers for you), but yes, no one is immune.

Hi guys, i bought 50K Bonvoy points , due to the current 60% bonus offer.
How long does it normally take for the purchased points to hit my account ?
I bought it on Wednesday night, and the points still have not appear.

2 to 3 days is usual.

Bonus usually 24 hours after the base purchase.

There's another offer on at the moment of 60% bonus points on any purchase above 2,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. The annual purchase limit has also been tripled during this promotion to 150,000 points. The offer ends on Wednesday 25 November.


If you were to buy 150k Marriott Bonvoy points during this offer, you'd get 240k points in total for a cost of USD1,875 (that's about $2.5k). That's equivalent to 100,000 miles in most frequent flyer programs after conversion.
 
The Qantas Premier Platinum Card delivers up to 100k Qantas Points, 75 bonus Status Credits, complimentary lounge invitations and travel insurance. All this with a reduced first-year annual fee of $199.

Pre-Covid my choice would be

buying 180k marriott for ~ 2k then convert to 75K ANA . Enough for a return in J between Australia - Asia award

Hmm... I need another 30k Kris points for a booking I was going to make next week. Would be about $700us which isn't great but it might be the easiest way to do it.
