  1. Polly says:

    Will Marriot be a Platinum partner once SPG goes l wonder? Just thinking how to collect AA miles ongoing..any ideas anyone?

    • TGLoyalty says:

      I hope so since they are keeping the SPG card relationship atleast until the new programme in 2019

    • JamesB says:

      Personally I doubt it because they would need to replace a 25 night beinefit with a fifty night benefit to make that possible. However, here’s hoping.

      • TGLoyalty says:

        Gold status is staying that’s confirmed.

        The OP was talking about points transfer for AA miles which wouldn’t be related to any status offer anyway.

  2. JOHN CONNOR says:

    Rob, many thanks for the heads up on the Iberia Manchester-Madrid AVIOS offer.
