Airline and hotel rewards programs news and promotions
Marriott International will introduce one set of unified benefits across the Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) loyalty programs in August 2018, the company has announced. Beginning this summer, members will be able to combine their separate Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and SPG accounts into a single account; however, the individual program names will live on until a new name is introduced sometime next year.
Members will also be able to book stays across the entire portfolio of 29 global brands for the first time on Marriott.com, SPG.com and the Marriott and SPG apps or by contacting customer engagement centers beginning in August.
The unified program will introduce a single points currency. SPG members will see their points balance triple in August and all members will begin earning points for food and beverage and qualifying incidentals as well as the room rate. All hotels throughout the loyalty portfolio will have no blackout dates for points redemptions.
