Marriott International announced it will introduce one unified loyalty program across Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) for its members beginning in August 2018.
When the new benefits program debuts this summer, members will be able to combine their separate Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and SPG accounts into a single account spanning the entire loyalty portfolio. This will allow members to book stays and earn or redeem points among 29 participating global brands comprising of 6,500 hotels in 127 countries and territories. With this new program, members will earn on average 20 percent more points for every dollar spent.
Also beginning in August, all travelers, whether they are loyalty program members or not, will have the ability to book stays across the entire portfolio on marriott.com, spg.com and the Marriott and SPG apps.
In addition, the Moments experiential platform is expanding, with more than 110,000 experiences in 1,000 destinations from must-see attractions and tours for purchase, to special events only available to members using points, including the new bespoke Moments Live event series.
