Marriott and SPG have announced that their co-branded cards will begin earning bonus points across brands between the companies.

The Details

Beginning today:

  • 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.

These changes are now in place and all co-branded cards earn the increased rewards as of today. You can find the full details of the change in the company’s press release.

I wonder if this is going to devalue the star points.


Why would anyone want to use the Marriott card at all then? The SPG would get 6 MR pt/$, the Marriott card gets 5 MR pt/$ at any Marriott property.

Right, if you have both cards you should use the SPG card, but I expect that many readers only have one or the other.
