SPG Marriott/Ritz-Carlton Rewards Points Transfer and Status Match

linkigmarrittspgritzcarlton00Following merger of 2 Hotel giants: Star Wood Hotels  and Marriott, the rewards programs started its integration in September 2016 as well. Now you can Transfer Points between SPG, Marriott Rewards, and Ritz-Carlton Rewards programs. Members can transfer points between both programs at a 1:3 ratio — each StarPoint will be equivalent to three Marriott points. Transferred points should appear within a few hours, and you can move points back and forth as many times as you’d like.

Linking accounts is useful for:

  1. Transferring points between the programs. It also resets the points expiration date:
    SPG StarPoints 1 year after transfer
    Marriott Point 2 years after transfer (Marriott Points Expiration Policy)
  2. Status Match between the programs

To transfer point start by linking rewards programs on Marriott site: http://members.marriott.com/link-accounts/,  Select “SPG Members Start Here” and login into your SPG account

To transfer points between the programs  (in this case from SPG to Marriott) perform the following:

  1. Log in in to your SPG Account
  2. Navigate to “Manage My account” / “Account Overview” and Select Redeem & Transfer points:

  3. Select “More Options”/”Transfer StarPoints to Reward Points”linkigmarrittspgritzcarlton03 linkigmarrittspgritzcarlton04
  4. Enter the number of points you would like to transfer  (in 1000 increment):linkigmarrittspgritzcarlton05
  5. The points get removed from your SPG account right away and will appear on Marriott Points account in the couple of hours (in my case it took about 30 min)

I suspect the transfer from Marriott Point to SPG StarPoints will take sthe same amount of time.
