SPG sent out a variety of targeted offered to customers but a lot of people including myself apparently never got the memo, so I thought it was worth sharing about these offers. Some of these offers allow you a chance to earn elite status a lot quicker while other offers are giving points away after a couple of stays.
Via Reddit, here are a few of the offers:
- 2X elite qualifying credit on nights and stays on all stays between September 15, 2017, and December 15, 2017 — with no earning limits.
- First stay earns 5X qualifying nights towards elite status; second stay earns 5X qualifying nights towards elite status (maximum bonus of 10 qualifying nights)
- First stay earns 2,500 points; second stay earns 5,000 points
- Keep in mind that these are targeted so it’s possible that you might not get anything at all.
These are some pretty great offers if you’re interested in earning status with SPG. I’m a big fan of SPG Platinum Status which I earned by doing a status challenge to earn Marriott Platinum status. I already have Platinum status for 2018, so I’l be sitting this challenge out though I did receive a targeted offer for 2X the credits on nights and stays.
Don’t forget that you also must register for the promotion using the register button (seen below). You will see the option to register if you are targeted for any of the promotions.
