Yesterday I sadly didn’t get an email informing me I was targeted for the lucrative new SPG promos, but I did get an email reminding me to add my stay preferences to my profile.  In that email, there was also a great piece of info…updating my SPG profile would net me 500 bonus free SPG points!

Free SPG Points

To earn 500 free SPG points of your own, just follow these steps.

1.  SPG Members must register for the double/triple SPG points promo online at by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) on November 30, 2014.

2.  Those registered for that promo are eligible to receive 500 bonus SPG points when updating their “My Stay Preferences” between October 15, 2014 and December 15, 2014. Updates made prior to registration are eligible, but only if the update falls within October 15 to December 15, 2014.

3.  The bonus will post to the registered member’s account 2-4 weeks after the end of the promotion period. All members who are registered for the More For You promotion are eligible for the My Stay Preferences bonus regardless of whether they have an eligible booking in the promotion.

I love SPG points, so am happy to get 500 free SPG points to add to my stash, but these points are even more valuable to those who haven’t had any SPG activity in a while since earning these 500 points will reset the 12 month clock on your SPG points. 

Happy Free SPG Points Day!
