On RewardsPlus, per Marriott Insiders:



Since Amex is similar (it offered Gold match [50 night level] before program merger on 08/18, and was still offered at gold level [now 25 night level with no lounge access/breakfast] in merged program), it will likely be handled in the same fashion as RewardsPlus (same deal for UA elites).
This is not what they communicated prior to 8/18. They were very clear that anything that was matched to *W Gold would get Marriott Gold and everything that was externally matched (not from *W Gold) to Marriott Gold would get the new Marriott Platinum. Now, they could have decided to make it easier and more generous in the meantime, but I somehow doubt it.
