Take advantage of the best of both worlds — starting March 1, 2013, SPG® and SkyMiles® are taking elite travel to new heights with a revolutionary new benefit: Crossover Rewards™. Earn Starpoints® and get extra benefits when you fly with Delta; earn miles and enjoy added hotel benefits when you stay with SPG. This changes everything.
Crossover Rewards benefits are in addition to the current Starpoints and miles earned as a member of each program, making elite benefits even richer.
Hello. I had seen this partnership announcement about 3 months ago and posted a question on insiders regarding any pending Marriott affiliation. Unfortunately I had no response or comments on it. I think it would be great for Marriott to get a partner and it would help all of us that do not have a lot of long distance or frequent airline travel to get some perks. I guess we will just have to see.
This may not be what you're looking for, but there are several travel partners and opportunities to earn extra points, Hotel Rewards | Earn Rewards with Marriott Hotels. Bayoneboy, I do see your other question so I'll link it to this conversation.
