LAST CALL: Marriott Rewards & SPG Choice Benefit Based On 2018 Activity (Choose By February 7)


Marriott Rewards & SPG Choice Benefit that went dark unexpected in early January and was reactivated in mid month. Marriott then extended deadline until February 7, 2019 for members to make their choice.

Marriott Rewards Choice Benefit

Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) launched Choice Benefit first for those staying 50 nights and later introduced second gift at 75 nights. Marriott Rewards incorporated this into the combined program last year.

You can access website to choose the Choice Benefit here.

Remember that if you don’t make a selection by February 7, 2019 Marriott Rewards will choose by default the Suite Night Award option for both 50 and 75 night levels.


There are no good options at 50 nights level (SPG members used to be able to choose a free night award but Marriott discontinued this) but the free night award is the best option for those eligible 75 night award.

Remember to study the options and make your selection(s) by February 7. Marriott Rewards has surprisingly not emailed many members and alerted that they should choose their preferred award. I guess that they hope to be able to just award Suite Night Awards to everyone.
