Marriott and American Express Reach Card Agreements
Marriott International has reached new, multi-year agreements with American Express and JPMorgan Chase for its US-issued, co-brand credit cards associated with its loyalty program. These agreements will extend Marriott’s relationship with both card issuers and cover the Marriott Rewards and Ritz-Carlton Rewards Visa credit cards from JPMorgan Chase, and the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) credit cards from American Express. Marriott expects to introduce new, co-brand products starting in 2018—including super-premium consumer and small-business co-branded products from American Express. Additional details on the future products will be shared in 2018. In the meantime, both companies will retain their existing portfolio of accounts and continue to offer their current products. Consumer card members who have the SPG card can continue to use their cards as usual.
