Marriott Credit Card Points tracking

I am trying to earn points for an upcoming trip.  I decided to use my Marriott card more frequently so I can rack up points.  I have a few questions:

  1. When do the points get applied to my Marriott account - is it once per bill cycle?
  2. If I know that I will want to convert the points to miles, does it make sense to earn points and convert once I hit a milestone for conversion or should I choose to earn miles directly? I noticed in the past that the promotions are different if you choose miles over points so I switched back to points.
  3. Is there somewhere to barter for points or miles at a cheaper rate than buying directly. Program Conversations
