Delta and Starwood Combine Forces

Starting March 1, loyal customers to both Delta and Starwood will get double the perks.

With so much competition, airlines and hotels have had to get creative to keep customers coming back. So it makes sense that an airline and a hotel group would band together to foster loyalty to both. Starting March 1, Starwood Preferred Guest elite and Delta SkyMiles Medallion members will get Crossover Rewards, which means both miles and points when you book flights or hotel rooms. More specifically, Delta Medallion members earn one mile per dollar when staying at a Starwood hotel, plus the Starpoints. They will also get perks like priority check-in, late checkout, and that all-important free internet access. And Starwood Preferred Guest Platinum members who fly Delta get a free checked bag and priority check-in and boarding, plus one Starpoint per dollar spent on top of the usual miles.

 To join the program, register your accounts through either Delta SkyMiles or Starwood Preferred Guest.

What do you think of these programs? Would they keep you loyal, or do you always go with the lowest price, no matter what?
