I just found this interesting article in Loyalty Lobby regarding the Starwood/Marriott proposed merger.  Even though it is more negative than good about Marriott Rewards it has good points.


Marriott Rewards & Starwood Preferred Guest Loyalty Program Merger Disaster In The Making | LoyaltyLobby


The author is spot on with the "no blackout dates" as there are many resorts in particular where you can search for months to redeem points for a stay only to find the famous "not available for check-in" banner for the entire time. 


The issue of Marriott soliciting votes for the Freddie Awards, isn't that interesting just a week or so after our very own Insiders communitymanagers puts up  You’re a Big Part of Our Success asking for us to vote for Marriott.  Not sure the small number of Insiders would make a difference in the voting however!!


What are your thoughts on the article?
