Marriott SPG Credit Card Earnings
Today Marriott and SPG have announced that their co-branded credit cards will begin earning category bonuses across all properties. Here is how it will work according to their release:
- Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card by American Express Card Members in the U.S. can earn two Starpoints® for every eligible dollar spent using the Card directly at hotels participating in Marriott Rewards globally.
- Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card from Chase and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card from JPMorgan Card Members in the U.S. can earn five Marriott Rewards or The Ritz-Carlton Rewards points for every eligible dollar spent using their respective Card on qualifying purchases made at participating global SPG properties.
So 2X Starpoints at Marriott properties for SPG cardholders or 5X Marriott/Ritz Carlton Rewards points at SPG properties for Marriott/Ritz cardholders.
You can find the full press release here.
This is good news for members of all programs considering it adds more earning potential and a further overall integration. It’s good to see they were able to get both Chase and Amex to play along with this change and one can only wonder what will happen with the co-branded card situation once all three programs (SPG/Marriott/Ritz) merge in 2018.
