I'm Spire. Got the 25k last year. Do we get another 25k in 2016 by being Spire?

I don't see where to choose/get that though.

Well my totals all reset to zero , sometime since I looked yesterday 1st Jan 5pm Asian time zones

And the link to select the 25k Spire points has not reappeared with the reset or even as long ago as early Nov2015 when my Spire Expiry changed from Dec2016 to Dec2017

I guess it is play waiting game, but initial Spire blurb is that 25k/platinum-status choice is not a 1-off but is given again each year

Yea, I seen it now. I didn't do this in 2015, but did so today. Instantly, 25k points posted.

That was cool.

I do not see it in my account yet. Got Spire status through the Chase card glitch last year. I'm not sure if that is the reason why the option is not there in my account.

I would have thought you get the reward when you (re)qualify.

HTB.

Thank you.
Just go to your account page. At the bottom of the left hand column, under member materials, click on "Spire Elite Choice Benefit".

Unfortunately, the link to my 2 free hotel nights from the Share Forever promo are again missing from my account now that this has been added.

Have you already re-qualified through rollover nights for Spire for 2017 by any chance so that's why you're seeing "Spire Elite Choice Benefit" again where others like me aren't? If so then HTB is correct that the choice is made when (re)qualifying for Spire and not at the start of each calendar year.
