Points Without Stay?

Can you earn points/miles without a stay? Specifically, for restaurant and spa charges?

don't believe you can do this. it would be great; but each time i have tried to do so, it has been without any luck whatsoever.

if you ever find out that this is possible, we would all love to know.

regards

I have never tried as I thought this to be the case, but it does really stink.

Starwood gives credit for any restaurant/spa etc charges as long as they exceed US$10.00 without any need to stay in the hotel. Wish Marriott would do the same as I frequent one of their restaurants every month or so without a stay...

Any lobbyists want to take this issue up with Marriott?

Bummer.

My wife and a group of friends are going for a day at the Spa at Camelback Inn. Sure to be a hefty tab, so it would be nice to at least get some points/miles.

BTW, on a similar outing to a Starwood property, we were denied StarPoints.

When renewing our health club membership at our local Marriott, we always book a room for one night in order to get the points for the club membership. You may decide that Camelback rooms are too expensive as a trade-off for the number of points you'll garner, but that would be a way to get the points for your Spa expenses.

Thanks. I had considered booking the room, but it is high season here and the rates are running $429+ .

If you check-in to the hotel for a "day" use room and then room charge everything you WILL earn points
