Me too. I lost mine about a month ago. I think I even heard it clang on the cement floor but didn't realize that is what I was hearing.

I read about the Platinum gift last year here at FT, registered with the link provided here and got my free night gift. I registered for the new gift a few minutes ago - we'll see what happens.

Nevertheless, I still wonder why I don't get these offers. Does it depend on your citizenship? I am not a US resident.
The fact that you get confirmation emails from Starwood means nothing with regard to your opt-in status with SPG. If you are opted in to receive emails from SPG, then I would search my spam folder or ask your email provider what may have happened to prevent delivery of this and other promotional offers from SPG.

No direct email an this offer from *W but when I went to the link provided I was evidently approved and ordered the tags. Thanks Starwood!

That 2007 tag looks great! Hoping the 2009 one is similar, though by the sounds of it, it may be plastic this year.

Cheers,
- Febs.
