Seriously - until Friday? Luckily I was sitting at my computer when the email popped up.

I think coincidental. I received the email also for PLT, which I am in 2009. But I'm still one stay short of requilifing for PLT for 2010. (That stay will occur within the next week - thank you Starpicks for the Westin Boston Waterfront @ 109!)

Definitely coincidental. I'm not even going to go close to re-qualifying to plat this year, but I got the email too.

This was in the T&C's & a bit different than the actual link that one click's on when it says "verify your address".

I'm not so sure--I've been Plat for the past 2 years and was offered a gift for the 1st time today.

I think it might have just been a confidence ... I re-qualified months ago and just got the email today.

I've got a couple of tags several years ago. They are just metal luggage tags (silver color) with the words SPG Platinum on it. Nothing spectacular but a nice touch from Starwood.

I was PLT this year but will drop to Gold next year. My invite said

To celebrate your travels with us this year, we'd like you to have a set of limited-edition luggage tags as our gift to you. Take these with you on all your upcoming travels — they'll help represent you as an important part of the Starwood Preferred Guest® family.

During this holiday season, we want to take a moment to thank you for choosing SPG®. This has been an exciting year for us as we continued to expand our properties to offer you more choices in the places you like to visit. If you've stayed with Sheraton® this year, you may have experienced one of our newly renovated hotels, part of a beautiful $6 billion global transformation."

I never got the email even though I re-qualified for Plat several months ago. But I was successfully able to register. You can confirm it by trying to re-register and you will get the message
You are already enrolled to receive a limited-edition gift.

Your limited-edition set of luggage tags will arrive at the address you provided.
Please contact the Customer Call Center in your region if you have any questions.

Yes, it would have been nice to have an image of the tag in the email or registration URL. But this way we can all be surprised, I suppose.

I never got the email either and requalified as Plat a long time ago. But the link worked so my gift is on the way.
