On Monday we launched a giveaway to celebrate the very last SPG buy Starpoints sale ever (read more here) that ends on July 20th and SPG More Nights, More Starpoints (read more here) and Marriott Rewards MegaBonus (read more here) promotions.
The giveaway is for 30,000 Starpoints that you can convert to 90,000 Marriott Rewards points by linking your accounts (can do it here) and moving your points over. The giveaway is about to end and you must get your entries in by 11:59PM EDT on June 29, 2018.

SPG has a great Starpoints sale at 35% off (read more here) that is going until July 20, 2018. This is your last opportunity to purchase Starpoints (or Marriott Rewards points for that matter) at a discount.
Marriott Rewards and SPG programs are effectively merging in August (read more here) and we were given some examples of the combined award charts last month (read more here). There was lots of drama about the lifetime status criteria for SPG members that was resolved last week (read more here). The new name for the combine program won’t be announced before early 2019, however.
Marriott has updated the Marriott & SPG Platinum member lounge access and welcome gift options in the combined program. You can read more about these here.
Starwood Preferred Guest has More Nights, More Starpoints (read more here) promotion going on until July 20, 2018. SPG has other bonus points and miles promotions too that you can read about here and here.
Marriott Rewards has their MegaBonus going on at the moment through July 20, 2018, where members earn 750 bonus points for each night consumed during the promotional period starting from the third night. You can learn more about this offer here and other Marriott Rewards promotions here.
Remember that the best way to use Marriott Rewards points (my personal opinion) are Travel Packages that I recently wrote about here.
Good luck for all the participants! The previous winners of this years giveaways have so far come from Germany, Austria and thrice from the United States!
