With transferable points, there are a few options:
1: Transfer points shortly after they post
2: Wait for some transfer promotion (for MRs at least)
3. Transfer shortly before booking
#1 offers the most protection to heavy-duty bonus hunters and MSers (who face an increased risk of shutdowns).
#2 can potentially be the most lucrative for people who are confident they'll use the points well.
#3 is the least likely to lead to wasted points (assuming the points arrive in time).
So far, I've followed #3. What about others?
If I don't renew my CSP in January 2017, there might be a bit of a dilemma. I could:
1. Transfer the remaining points to United and/or Hyatt
2. Keep them with Freedom in anticipation of getting a CSR in June 2017
Keeping indefinitely: IHG, SchwabPlat, CSP, Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE, Hyatt
May close or PC: Prestige, Arrival, BrooksBros
AA Platinum converting into Costco
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech
Letting new accounts cool off since May
