Spg lifetime is getting screwed. No ltpp like the Marriott guys get, spg let gold loosing lounge access... (technically they just got it during the merger, but still a big blow). Devaluations are coming hard on the redemption side (anyone with a point balance will see them worth much less)...

OP, !!!! Excellent! Where’d you read that?

Believe the SPG conversion is fair but the 10X per dollar is a pretty steep devaluation

@M2 yes Overall pretty good

Are you guys seeing my point, if they are increasing to 10x per dollar do our existing points get diluted? My current points will buy me much less.. maybe I am over thinking this

Check out the interview on TPG that was given with the Loyalty VP at Marriott. It’s the first question they asked him

like

It says that the Starwood points are going to convert to 3x ‘points’ and then you earn 10x ‘points’ per dollar starting August. Did they just dilute our points massively or am I misreading this?

Yeah...wth.. also 75% bonus cap of points per dollar, no 100% bonus with 75 nights at spg..

Link please

Does 700 SPG nights give lifetime platinum in the new program?

Lifetime is actually improving

How so? Will spg nights/points be combined with current Marriott for the lifetime count?

Said it would all combine, but was light on details. What new requirements are, how past stays fill that, etc.

Anyone know if nights earned will merge? Like if 20 nights at Marriott so far, and 20 nights with SPG so far, will they merge to 40 nights to qualify for status next year?

10 points/dollar is base. Most of us will get 17.5.

Will our original Marriott points also multiply by 10?

@Op no man, that would be crazy

Can we double dip on elite status years in 2018 for lifetime requirements?

@DD1 - thanks!
