The Points Guy featured this article this week which suggests that the loyalty programs are expected to continue through 2018. Kind of surprised that it bumped out a year and wish Marriott would share this with the members. I had assumed this was going to occur by the end of this year and shifted much of my spending from the Marriott credit card to my Chase Sapphire. However adding another year of the current program gives me an outside chance to make Lifetime Platinum under the current Marriott requirements, and not sure if others may be in the same position.
Does keeping things status quo through 2018 change anyone else's approach to points?
