Saw this on FT today. The Starwood representative posted today that "floater certificates" under the new combined SPG/Marriott program will be canceled. normanp what floater certificates? are these the categoriy 1-5 certificates SPG members earn for hitting 50 nights each year? If so, does this means if we earn the free night certificate before the August 1st date, Marriott will then turn around, cancel it and then convert them to equivalent points(12,000 Starpoints/36,000 Marriott points) into our account?
bejacob looks like this will affect Marriott certificates/Travel packages also, so I'm tagging you also for help understanding this.
10. Question on the "floater certificates" being canceled and points redeposited into the account on Aug 1st. Does this include outstanding Marriott Travel packages here: Flight and Hotel Packages Marriott Hotel PackagesFloater certificates, including outstanding Marriott Travel Package certificates, will be cancelled and converted to equivalent points, credited to the member’s account for future redemption. <added clarity by Starwood Lurker 21Jun18>
