I have received a slew of advertising e-mails, but have yet to receive one where it tells me how and when my SPG points & Marriott points will be merged. Does anyone have this answer?Thanks
You can transfer points from marriott rewards to spg (and vice versa) right now for redemption. As for combining them into one account for earning and redemption, that will occur on August 1st.
However, there's a little debate on whether there will be a button to enable the accounts to be merged in the new program (as implied on FT by SPG Lurker). That isn't clear yet.
Hopefully that helps.
We believe you'll have the Option to merge your account in August 2018 if you find it beneficial. Some may not want to merge their account in August because the additional months in one or the other program may prove more favorable. Shortly after 31 Dec 2018, all accounts will be merged by Marriott without option.
