Will you still be able to transfer Amex points to Marriott points after the SPG/Marriott merger?

Hi all,
Wondering if anyone knows what’s happening with the SPG transfer partnership with AMEX Australia post the merger? Once SPG ceases to exist, are we out in the cold and no longer able to get points into the new ‘mega’ loyalty currency for Marriott?

Hi deva22, there is an article out in the last few days. Have a read. Big devaluation transferring from Amex.

Hi deva22,

I believe that is the same question most Amex cardholder have on their mind (Membership Rewards program) so you are definitely not alone.

I believe, at the time of writing, there are still no official word from Amex whether Marriott will become a transfer partner.

However, I have heard unconfirmed rumours that 1 Amex MR will transfer to 1 Marriott point. (It is currently effectively 1 MR : 1.5 Marriott points via SPG) -> Ouch! big devaluation.
