Looks like registration for the Delta/Starwood Crossover rewards opened up a couple days early. The program goes into effect on March 1st but the registration opened up this morning.
Some more coverage of the Crossover rewards benefits can be found at the links below. In the meantime, go ahead and get the registration done. You probably want that anyways.

HT your fellow BA blogger? 🙂 http://blog.wandr.me/deltapoints/2013/02/27/registration-for-deltaspg-crossover-is-live-on-spg-site-now/
In that I didn’t read it on your blog I’m not so sure why I should be crediting you with informing me of it.
Argh. They insist that the names on the accounts match. For those of us who were recently forced to update the names on our SkyMiles account to match TSA records, this is likely to cause problems. Moreover, for folks like me who simply refuse to use our TSA-mandated full name as it appears on our passport in the course of daily business, SPG says there is no way we can participate.
Not a very customer friendly move by SPG 🙁
Requiring a matching name is a pretty useful sort of check to ensure that it is the same person and that the correct accounts are linked. I don’t really fault them too much for that.
@seth – of course I understand that, but there’s a difference between a logical heuristic match, e.g. “John J. Smith” vs “Michael Jonathan Joseph Rupert Smith III” and an exact, verbatim match.
if we link, do we have to chose either skymiles or SPG Points? or do we get to double dip all the time?
I guess, is there any downside to signing up? (DL Silver and SPG Gold)
You get to double dip; it is quite nice, actually.
No harm at all that I can come up with for signing up.
Good call on your part Seth, not reading Delta Points blog
I never said that, RQ. I said I didn’t get this information there. No need to be a hater.
