Just to clarify, "we" = "MR Members".

If you called up to ask SPG to change your assigned promo, they weren't as accommodating.

Is this a targeted promotion? I would love to share more but when I clicked on it to register, I was told the promotion was unavailable, ha ha ha!
Thatís the best pts promo yet. Itís not even in the wiki. Congrats!

I believe you are a heavy traveler. Can you post your YTD nights as well as future bookings? Some people seem to think that only light travelers are targeted.

My drop down is the same as jacca83. There is no sub-category, 'Promotion' as a tab.

Posted to the wiki. If you want to add your promo expiry date (I'm guessing it's May 31), please do so.

I'm jealous now.

I am platinum and had over 110 days last year. Have not received a promotion yet. Somewhat confused.

I never got an email but the 2 paid night = 10 elite night credits is under the promo section of my online account.

Not a heavy traveler but with the SPG Amex 15 nights and 10 from this promo I might just get to 50 nights late in the year. I assume the plat status would carry over to 2020?

Thanks. The takeover of SPG was defiantly a bonus for our style of travel.

Funny thing is that if you are a member of the Ritz Rewards program, the website doesn't even have a promotions page!

Double night credit seems to post at the same time as the stay itself, at least for my first eligible stay earlier this week. Hopefully it continues like that -- much easier to keep track of than waiting for a sweep!

Still not showing. Here's a screen shot. I wonder if it has to do with me being a Ritz Carlton Rewards member?

Yes, the Ritz Rewards member site has never had (or at least not for the last year or so) a promotions tab on the website. In the past Ritz's main promotion was just double nights elites for any RC stay (which I why I switched from Marriott Rewards to RC Rewards). Now that they no longer are offering double nights for RC stays by RC rewards members there are effectively no promotions for RC members.

That said, this should all change next week on the 13th when they deactivate both the RC Rewards app and website, at that point I expect that everyone will have the same website and a promotions tab. Hopefully us RC rewards members will also get one of the promotions at that point too!

Platinum premier 75. Was not targetted with a single promotion. Not happy. Especially considering how valuable these are. Called marriott platinum line, was told there were no promotions to add to my account. I'm not a happy marriott customer right now.
