With the end of Marriott's buy-back and rollover nights program, I was wondering how the introduction of Hilton's Aspire credit card (which grants instant top-tier Diamond status to card holders) has influenced Marriott elites - especially Insiders who I assume are more knowledgeable about the ins-and-outs of rewards programs than the average Marriott elite. If you'd like to explain your choice (e.g. I'm a Marriott Gold with no hope of making Platinum, so instant Diamond status is hugely appealing), feel free to chime in in the comments!
- Yes - and I plan to shift (some/all) loyalty from Marriott to Hilton4
- Yes - and will use Hilton as a backup program5
- Not yet - I'm waiting for the Marriott Super Premium card to make a choice24
- No - (I don't like credit cards, I would never stay at a Hilton, etc.)14
