Master Thread of Discussion on Marriott / SPG Merger
« on: April 16, 2018, 06:46:42 PM »
I thought this thread was warranted as I did not find a good place to discuss this other than the thread of DDMS discussion, but i didnt want to overwhelm that thread. If not, please feel free to move to a more appropriate thread.

Anyone know if Sheraton lounge access for SPG Business CC will end Aug 1, or will continue till the end of the annual fee?

Can all those be combined into one master thread?

It would be good to have this new one as the master thread -- starting today, April 16 is when all the facts are official. Before that is just rumors and speculation.

I wish they'd make the points worth 2 Marriott/ 2/3 of an SPG.
I for my own of the bat calculations I like when points are in the field of 1 cent pp

Wouldn't you rather get the most value for your point?

You're alone there.

I don't want the earning rate to change. Just the currency. Instead of earning 2 Marriott for x it should be 1 point (with the value of 2)

People can't understand it as it is. Let's add fractions so that it requires a PHD.

So far they've left the Canadian SPG amex alone, earning 1 point per Canadian dollar.

They just haven't gotten around to fixing it.
