It works okay for me - I do almost all of my travel in Spring and Summer, save the good stuff until then.

I'm sorry for the rest of you...

I don't know what SPG promo you are talking about...I only saw the 2x or 3x promotion...what one are you referring to?

This one works for me...I'd have loved FFN as usual, but I'm most likely going to snag 20,000 bonus points, so THANKS Hyatt!

Yes, it's funny to think back how poorly received the SPG promo was just a few days ago.

Same here.

the spg 1000points or up to 150 credit are special offers to those who received the code, and unfortunately I am not one of them....

Although not as lucrative as FFN, I'm glad to at least see some type of promo out there. I can see the potential for bringing in at least 5,000 points per stay when you add on a G bonus, Diamond points, and stay credit. Can't have too many points.

"Not so great 10k" sounds like a reference to how 10k points earned this fall from the promotion are worth less today than 10k points were worth even four or five months ago. Oh wait, that is what happened.

At least this is better than nothing.

No. You can choose to earn points or miles for your base earning.
It's not quite what I would like to see, but allowing choosing miles while still getting the bonus points is still nice.
