It is also discussed in the Merger thread above.

A summary per Onemileatatime:

https://onemileatatime.boardingarea....rogram-rumors/

The new program will launch in August

Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest will be launching a single program in August, which would match what Marriott’s CEO said, when he indicated that it would happen in the second half of the year. That’s right at the beginning of the second half of the year.

The new program will have five elite tiers

The new elite tiers for the combined program would be as follows:
  • Silver status after 10 nights
  • Gold status after 25 nights
  • Platinum status after 50 nights
  • Platinum Premier status after 75 nights
  • Ambassador status after 100 nights and $20,000 of spend

Members will earn 10 points per dollar spent

Free breakfast expanded to 25 brands and resorts
And I will add- What about Suite Upgrades? Will there be any guaranteed Upgrades per Starwood now?
