This also means that the existing SPG app has been retired and no longer accessible on the app store any more.

The SPG program was the reason most of us points hobbyists got into the points obsession. It’s sad that the legacy SPG is no longer alive, and it will truly be remembered. The new Marriott Bonvoy Program has kept a lot of legacy benefits and has a huge portfolio of over 5400 hotels worldwide. We look forward to exciting times with these program changes.
