Starwood’s New Terms and Conditions Tell Us What to Expect in the Future

The official merge of Marriott with Starwood has brought many benefits for the guest. They can move points between the accounts (Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest) by the ratio 3:1. Officials of both the organisations are working on a new Unified Loyalty Program that will be launched soon, till then member can choose to move points between the two programs and enjoy benefits.

Key Points:

  • Marriott isn’t ready to talk about the future of lifetime elite status, their co-brand credit benefits, or what upgrades will look like. For now they made a good first effort.
  • The expiration of points as well as the ability to use points with third-party partners such as airline frequent flyer programs.
  • Regardless, this happens “no earlier than 2018.” Programs continue independently in 2017, and there’s no guarantee at this point that programs will combine in 2018.

“There be will a newly combined loyalty program that will be launched and it seems that’s not just for Starwood and Marriott, but appears to be for Ritz-Carlton also.”
