    One cannot help but wonder whether these are the signs of "Rewards Advantage" or "SomeHotel-AA" in the making...

    ...because right on the heels of this offer:

    Hilton Offers 20K HHONORS POINTS AND AADVANTAGE® PLATINUM STATUS [TARGETED OFFER]

    we get this treat...

    Marriott Rewards Terms and Conditions
    Airline Rewards

    Rewards Program members may redeem Points in exchange for airline frequent flyer miles with any participating airline partner. Learn about participating airlines and their conversion rates.

    Rewards Program members requesting a Mileage Reward must be a member of the relevant airline frequent flyer program in order to receive a Mileage Reward. For details on joining a frequent flyer program, please refer to the particular airlines terms and conditions.

    Once frequent flyer miles have been requested, miles will automatically be transferred to the member's frequent flyer account. Please allow approximately six weeks for miles to be posted to your frequent flyer account or contact your local Rewards Program Guest Services to inquire about express service (may include a fee).

    Once miles are credited to the member's frequent flyer account, changes, reissuance or re-credit of Rewards Points are not allowed.

    The terms and conditions of the airline frequent flyer programs control the redemption and distribution of the miles earned through the Rewards Program.

    The airlines reserve the right to change the frequent flyer program at any time with or without notice. Any such changes may affect your ability to use the awards or mileage credits that you have accumulated. The airline is not responsible for products or services offered by other participating companies. All program terms and conditions of your preferred airline frequent flyer program apply.

    For additional details on participating airline frequent flyer programs, including how to join, please refer to the terms and conditions for that airline program.

    Travel Packages


    All Rewards Program Rules apply.

    Miles will be automatically transferred into the participating frequent flyer program account that matches the name on your Rewards Program Account.

    Got a similar email from USAirways, that also provides a 20% bonus for converting Marriott Rewards to USAirways miles.

    Thought Marriott was tied to UA (at least for now). It's probably AA coming up with a mutually beneficial offer for hotels.

    AA also currently has the ClubCarlson promo - two stays yields 7,500 miles. Appears to me that AA is happy to have offers with any hotel chain that's willing to provide revenue ...

    Maybe the dAArk side is on the prowl for a hotel program to partner with in a UA-Marriott type JV, so they are sending out "feelers", casting their net wide...

    AA should partner with hilton or hyatt. I'd prefer hyatt, but Hilton probably makes more sense sits it reaches a larger number of people

    Careful what you wish for - largest number of people puts Choice Hotels and PriorityClub/IHG at the top of the list ;)
