Marriott began their rewards program merger on Saturday and it’s been a mess. But after 4 days of trying I was finally able to merge my SPG account with my Marriott account.
Everyone who had an SPG login can still use the same login credentials by going to SPG.com, though the actual Starwood number has been changed to a new Marriott number. Points in those accounts have been tripled.
That account is separate from your old Marriott account, which you can login to at Marriott.com
Those pages have been giving me errors since Saturday, but I was finally able to complete the merger process. When it asked me to confirm the number of lifetime nights in each account it was wayyyyyy off. But I went ahead with it anyway and they are all properly merged when I click on account overview.
Many years of enjoying Platinum status, but lifetime Platinum isn’t even on the horizon for me:
Now if only Marriott could figure out how to let us book all of the SPG all-suite hotels with 60K points as they promised. And make good by allowing upgrades and downgrades on travel certificates and honoring top-tier certificates for top-tier hotels past January. And return the SPG AMEX earnings back to 3 per dollar…
Oh well, it was nice knowing you SPG.
