【2017.11】万豪&SPG会员计划合并进展及分析


万豪与SPG合并以来最大的挑战莫过于会员计划的合并了。以目前进度来看,万豪和SPG各自的会员计划还将至少单独存在一年。而最近,会员们相信都收到了内容如下的一封邮件:


PROGRAM UPDATES FOR 2018
The Ritz-Carlton Rewards®, Marriott Rewards®, and SPG® will remain separate programs. While we continue to work with SPG to create a combined program, you can continue booking at the properties you love and earning points like you have been doing. We want you to be the first to know as we make updates, so here are a few updates for 2018: Introducing new Hertz benefits It's time to hit the open road! Beginning in early January, Platinum members can register to receive Hertz Gold Plus Rewards® Five Star® Status, and Platinum Premier members can register to receive Hertz Gold Plus Rewards® President's Circle® Status. Learn more about these exclusive benefits including car upgrades, additional points and more.Final year for Rollover Nights and status Buy Back 2017 is the last year members can earn Elite Rollover nights. This means any 2017 nights earned in excess of Elite requirements will roll over toward 2018 status, but excess nights earned in 2018 will not roll over toward 2019 status.Link.After linking your account, transfer points and discover more than 6,200 hotels across 30 brands in 125 countries. Explore more brands in more destinations.Explore.Use points to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences with Marriott Rewards Moments™ and SPG Moments™.It's been another year of new adventures and inspiring travel for our loyal members, and we hope that you'll continue to take advantage of the benefits of linked accounts and status match.As we make more updates, we will keep you updated every step of the way.

最主要的变动包括:

1. 取消用万豪积分Buy Back会籍。什么意思呢?不同的会员级别有不同的保级要求。以前如果你没有完成当年的保级要求(白金75晚,金卡50晚),可以直接通过花费一定的万豪积分来保级。然而这个选择将不复存在。这也就意味着,今年如果你没住够,就没法再通过这种方式保级了。

2. 万豪取消Roll Over房晚。以前如果你当年的房晚超过了保级要求,是可以计入下一年的。然而明年开始这个也将取消。

3. 万豪、SPG白金会员将获得Hertz的高级会员待遇。这个我觉得没什么太多亮点,毕竟Hertz的高级会员你通过美国运通白金卡可以零成本获取。

总体来说,这些变动都是为了更好的统一管理会员计划而服务的。万豪SPG合并以后吸收了大量的新会员,而这次变动则会加大顶级会员的保级难度,无疑对于会员忠诚度提出了更高的要求。但是从另一方面来说,这也是对每年住的多的会员的一种权益保障,毕竟作为白金会员应该不希望白金会员如此简单就能获取、保级吧?

我默默地看了一下自己的账号,今年以来各种房晚加起来才56,离白金的75要求尚有距离……不过保级这个还是不要硬撸,没有必要。

最后,作为加拿大信用卡界的平均回报率之王(超过3%),AmEx SPG这张信用卡也是非常值得申请的,欢迎使用本站推荐链接申请本卡
