Transfer: Delta TO SPG?

Is it possible to go from Delta Miles to SPG points?

I know SPG to Delta can be done, what about the reverse?

No. Nothing could be transferred to SPG

Not true - AMEX MR to SPG. I'm sure there are other options also.

You can earn SPG points if you fly Delta. However you will need to be Gold or Platinum with SPG to get points.

Guy Betsy, on Jan. 1 DL will allow one-way bookings, so 12,500 SkyPesos will get a one-way domestic US/ Canada award ticket!

Although I can't think of any way to convert SkyMiles to Starpoints, can't you convert AAdvantage miles to Diner Club points and turn those into Starpoints? Obviously at a poor transfer ratio, but still possible, no?

Yes, if you are willing to go indirect route, pretty much any airlines which allows transfer out can be transferred to Starwood.

You can transfer AA to SPG via DC at ratio of 10:3 plus fees. You can transfer HA to SPG via Hilton/AA/DC at ratio of 50:3 plus fees. There are many more. Even DL can be transfer out via points.com from time to time. You will end up with a small fraction of your miles with huge fees but it is possible.

Note: all those indirect transfers go via DC which only works if you have an existing Diners Club account. DC doesn't take new applications, at least for US residents.

You can earn additional miles from SPG stays if you're elite enough.

The points can be used to book rooms at some SPG properties and other hotels.

Never thought about this. Does anyone know what type of redemption you get? Also, would these bookings count towards status?

I was looking to book a SPG in Tahiti. No SPG property listed three other good hotels listed. El Paso, Texas Marriott and many other hotels from Super 8 to El Camino. The required points are listed for each hotel. You will have to check with SPG so see if the night count as a stay.

My case is even worse, I got 27k orphan miles on DL, unfortunately I start staying with SPG after my DL GOLD expiry. I'm in Asia and I usually fly DL from HKG-NRT, now they removed that flight permanently (after that I got my SPG GOLD, already nothing to do with the crossover, what the.....)

You might try one of their code sharing partner. You can check the fare codes on their partner to make sure you will earn miles on Delta.
