Points for dining in merged program?

Discussion created by australach on Sep 4, 2018

I am a SPG LTG and multiyear Platinum who has just combined my accounts into a new Marriott Platinum Elite with Ambassador.


In SPG, you could earn points for dining at SPG hotels without staying there.  I used to do this regularly when on holiday in Bali for example, as we woud visit the restaurants in nearby hotels for variety.


Is this supported in the new program?  On a recent stay in Singapore, where I was in the W Hotel, we went to the St Regis for their famous Sunday brunch.  At $600+ I was expecting to see credit for this spend on my account, but it hasn't shown yet.  It's not clear to me if points for dining is still supported in the new program.


Anyone know for sure?
