. Delta and Starwood have launched a unique new program called Crossover Rewards, which offers reciprocal benefits in both programs.
This means that starting March 1, Delta Diamond and Platinum Medallions (who are not already elite with Starwood) will get elite level benefits in the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) program, including 4 pm checkout, free internet, and one SkyMile per dollar spent on room rate in addition to Starpoints.
It also means that elite level SPG members will have access to already crowded priority check in and boarding lines. They will also get one free check bag.
