Summary of the 2018 Marriott Rewards Category Changes

Earlier today I shared a rundown of the Starwood Preferred Guest 2018 award chart changes that families need to know, and (unfortunately) now it is time to do the same with the Marriott Rewards side of things. Just like with Starwood, on March 6, 2018, the Marriott Rewards annual category changes will take effect.

Enjoying the Gaylord ICE Experience to the fullest takes a bit of strategy, so after going earlier this season…

The Best Credit Card to Pay for SPG and Marriott Hotel Stays

I recently covered some of the announced changes to the SPG/Marriott credit card line-up that are to come in 2018, and provided a rundown of what Marriott and SPG cards and bonuses are currently available as of today. While the good news is that we know some new Starwood and Marriott cards are to come in 2018, the flipside of that is that it is very likely that some of the currently available products will stop being available for new…

Rundown of Marriott and Starwood Credit Card Bonuses

Earlier this week we got the official word that beginning in 2018, there will be some new Marriott credit card products and that both Chase and American Express will be issuers of cards in the Starwood/Marriott/Ritz Carlton portfolio. Not all of the details were announced, but we learned enough to know that there will be some shake-ups in the current credit card line-up come 2018. It is likely, though not 100% confirmed, that at least some of the current card…
