As you may have heard, Marriott is finally winding down its long merger process with Starwood, and has unveiled its new “Bonvoy” program. Today is THE LAST day that the Starwood Preferred Guest card will be available for new applications. We have seen these points decline significantly in value over the last year, but for our readers planning a trip to the Disney Swan/Dolphin, this card remains a very helpful asset to have in your arsenal. If you’ve been planning to open this card, here is your last chance.
Remember, you can only open this card if you haven’t had a Marriott personal card within the last 30 days. Also, for a quick primer on the new Marriott program and cards you can check out this solid FAQ from TPG.
