I called the number listed, and asked what the program was. I was told they have there own promotional program and will send out text messages with deals on hotel rooms or dinners or the like. So for giving your number to get an occasional txt message they will give you 10k points.

You may be able to get away with just calling the number and saying you are responding to the text if you don't want to get any text messages or are paying by the text message.
I just tried calling and got the voicemail of someone at the Hampton Inn in Providence saying she is either away from her desk or on another call. My guess is that she is on another call and is getting a bunch of them. I didn't leave a message and will try again later. If I can't get through I may just leave my name, cell number and HH number and hope that will be all I need to do to get the 10k points.

I did a Google search for the number and it looks like the phone call goes directly to the sales office of the Hampton Inn and Suites Providence Downtown:

Renee Snoke, Sales Coordinator
Phone: (401) 608-3516

I left a message with her last night, I didn't hear back. Sounds like it works though. I don't feel bad about this as I spend 8-10 nights a year in Providence or Raynham for work.

If I get the points I will let you know.

OK I just got off the phone with Renee. I think I swamped her by posting so I don't feel too good about that. But I am confident that the points will come, and I hope people take advantage to stay at one of their properties.

FYI, this is now on Ingy's blog too. I'm guessing that's responsible for most of the traffic.

She just returned my call and took down my info. She says she is SLAMMED!!! Everytime she's on the phone returning a call she gets 5 new messages left. She isn't put out AT ALL by the number of calls she is getting -- she's actually quite pleasant about it all.
