  1. If I had a qualifying stay using a Membership rewards-earning card on August 19th, but registered for the promotion on August 26th, would I receive the MR bonus points for that stay?

  2. now the question is, should we pay with SPG amex or MR amex? Unless it’s a cheap one night stay, SPG amex is more bang for a buck.

  3. Last night I checked the link after reading @oneeyejack comment.

    It worked. I registered for the promotion and received my confirmation email from SPG.

    This morning I tried the link again after reading @Bacc comment. The promotion does not appear on the SPG page.

    I even went to other blog posts on this offer and the links do not work.

    Looks like SPG did something to the promotion web page.

  4. @tpat – Terms & Conditions of promotion do not state if registration required before hotel stay to be eligible.

    SPG tends to be pretty lenient with promotions on counting stays retroactively during a promotion period.

    Since the certificates are issued after promotion ends I think that an eligible stay prior to registration will probably count.

    You should call SPG to get an official ruling on the issue.
