UPDATE 07/15/2018: Delta and SPG have now terminated the Crossover Rewards partnership.
SPG has reminded its members via email that its partnership with Delta, the Crossover Rewards program, is coming to an end effective July 15, 2018. The move comes as no surprise in light of the SPG and Marriot merger, since Marriott already has a partnership with United through RewardsPlus®.
What Happens After The Termination
Currently, elites in one program can receive perks in the other, including late checkout, and complimentary in-room internet at SPG properties, as well as priority boarding, and check in when flying Delta.
While the benefits and perks accorded to Elites in both programs will cease, the programs are not completely cutting ties. You will still be able to earn miles for your stays, by selecting miles as your preferred choice, and members will still be able to convert their points to miles.
Even though we knew that the Crossover Rewards was likely coming to an end, it makes it no less disappointing. Fortunately, the new combined SPG/Marriott rewards program which launches August 1, 2018, has plenty to offer and will hopefully make up for some of the inevitable losses.
