At some point this August the Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest programs will be merged. While Marriott has shared their vision for what the program will look like, there are so many little details that we’re still not sure of. I believe Marriott is doing everything they can to provide clarity on things, though I’m guessing they’re quite overwhelmed trying to figure this all out themselves.

In the short term there are some pretty cool opportunities due to the new program. For example, starting in August the cost of redemptions at Starwood’s top hotels will go way down for the remainder of the year. It looks like there’s another potential opportunity where SPG members may be able to benefit this year.
