See how the other half earns. Just link accounts and we’ll match your current status. Then sample all of our brands and enjoy the benefits from each program.

The loyalty programs will continue to operate as separate entities for some time — we don’t anticipate combining the programs until 2018. Your Rewards account will have its own login, points balance and associated hotels. The same goes for your SPG account. Now that the two companies have merged, you can link your Rewards and SPG accounts. We encourage you to do this so you can get the best benefits across the portfolio. Please note, the policy remains that you can be a member of either Marriott Rewards or The Ritz-Carlton Rewards, but not both programs.
Yes, we are keeping all of our brands.
We want you to take advantage of the best of both programs. That means a few things:
*Note: This applies to your highest non-promotional status level.
These are two of the best programs in the industry, and we want you to benefit from everything that makes SPG and Rewards great. We don’t anticipate that the two programs will come together before 2018, and we will keep you informed of any updates. In the meantime, there’s no change to how you book reservations, manage your accounts or earn Elite night credits, points and miles in the current programs.
You’ll continue to receive SPG benefits at hotels participating in the SPG program and Rewards benefits at hotels participating in the Rewards program. But you can’t earn or use benefits across programs — SPG hotels will not offer Rewards benefits, and Rewards hotels will not offer SPG benefits. You’ll only get your points and benefits at a hotel if you’re enrolled in the program in which that hotel participates, so it’s a good idea to sign up for both SPG and Rewards if you haven’t already. While the programs will remain separate for some time, learn more about how you can gain access to benefits across both programs through Status Match and Points Transfer.
Your Rewards points will live in your Rewards account and your Starpoints live in your SPG account. The programs will continue to operate as separate entities for some time. In fact, we don’t expect the programs to merge until 2018. You’ll use Rewards points on Marriott.com or RitzCarlton.com and Starpoints on SPG.com. You can’t use one program’s points directly within the other program, but once you’ve linked accounts, you can transfer them between your accounts in order to redeem across the combined portfolio.
