The reason I am doing post is that - it might no longer exist anymore. The rules of engagement are changing. After the merger of SPG and Marriott, the things aren't as smooth as they should be. Marriott didn't think of merger properly for sure. It has been over a month since the merger and things are not back...
The trend of the season is providing 2x rewards for everyone. IHG and Hilton are both providing the same. Whereas Hyatt has a stacked promotion that I like.  Marriott is out with their last global promotion of the year. The promotion Megabonus: In More Places Marriott MegaBonus Promotion In this new Marriott Megabonus promotion, members earn 2,000 Marriott Rewards points for each completed...
  As per merger, there is lot of duplication among brands and lack of the clarity. We know so many brands in Marriott have overlapping criteria whereas so many brands, we don't even know what do they stand for.  In my head, Autograph collection and Luxury collection can overlap. However, for some reason, they are kept separate. I am not sure...

One of the best thing is Award chart pricing   The basics of Marriott’s new award chart In August Marriott will introduce a new award chart valid for members of all three programs. At that point...

Any change that happens doesn't come without a painful transition. Marriott tried to keep the program as best case scenario for both the programs but SPG was the stronger program of both and ofcourse it is where the most leakage of benefits happened. 50-Night Gift Changes Earlier when SPG member reached 50 nights - the member was allowed to choose from...
There is an intense amount of information coming out with Marriott lately. There are so many opportunities Marriott is providing to new members and old members alike to get most of upcoming merger.  This includes the identical offer Marriott had last year where new members could get a free stay at 1 to 5 category hotel for 2 stays at...
