Ditching Delta is only a good thing if you fly United and don't care about the superior point earning potential offered through the Delta / SPG partnership. Marriott / United only offers a status match. Uber didn't have a partnership with Marriott per my knowledge and googling. Got 4x SPG points per $ spent on uber over SPG stays.

You’ll continue to enjoy your SPG Lifetime status, and if you’ve already earned Marriott Rewards Lifetime status, you’ll keep that too. Please note that linking accounts will not result in a Lifetime status match in the other program.

They should prevent new people from earning lifetime status starting now and grandfather everyone else in. It'd be the fairest way

I have delta plat and SPG plat. This is intentionally ruining the lives of consulting going in and out of ATL :(

Ditching Delta is a good thing, Marriott is a united partner, but the uber tie will stay

They are punting on SPG Lifetime status continuance until 2018. If they don't match mine at that point I will switch to Hilton and only maintain low grade Marriott status. I spent too many nights for a decade to be overlooked.

Just hit 100 SPG nights for the year. And now I hear they're doing away with delta. Seriously the worst news ever. The best hotel chain in the US and the best domestic airline (delta) were matched for a reason. This is horrible

Starting today?!?!??

If you status match your SPG to Marriott can you then match your Marriott to United?

I like your idea EY3. If airlines can keep their legacy lifetime fliers so can Marriott. It's a serious deterrent to staying with them. I loved the Delta crossover rewards but now I have Delta gold anyway so it doesn't matter.

Sigh! The delta crossover points were great. I only fly united when I absolutely have to.

Where do you see anything about no lifetime status

Source?

And no, I would assume the this won't officially change until the 2018 date (I presume 1/1/18).

Losing delta match?? Sad day!! 😩

Yes, SA1.

If i get Marriott Plat matched today, when will this expire? end 2017?

"You’ll continue to enjoy your SPG Lifetime status, and if you’ve already earned Marriott Rewards Lifetime status, you’ll keep that too. *Please note that linking accounts will not result in a Lifetime status match in the other program*" - SPG email to me this morning is my source.

Serious question….with all of the pressure on the tech sector, companies freezing hiring, stocks down, companies cutting costs, how are things over in salesforce services? There is a lot of momentum overall for the services side of here economy (relative basis) in the US but a services division of a tech product company may be another matter. I hear salesforce is already slashing spending, cutting travel, etc. would value any views especially from the inside.
