    Transfer some SPG points into Marriott and then transfer them back. It's that easy. And instantaneous.

    My SPG points due to expire next month, got a year's extension. Obviously it keeps your Marriott points alive too.

    Actually it doesn't keep your Marriott points alive. Joe briefly lost his Starpoints because his Marriott account was inactive and an SPG transfer doesn't count as activity.

    Easier to book an award night and then cancel...

    Possibly they have changed it. I only became aware that it might work when the expiry date for both loyalty programs in my AwardWallet account changed to three years for Marriott and one year for SPG when I did the points transfers.

    Try it and see if your expiry date changes.

    Award Wallet could be wrong I guess.

    Yes that was rather annoying - hope they have fixed it!
