Done! Any idea how long before the 500 pts show up?

Wiki. :)

Ugh, 2-4 weeks! Has that been everyone's actual experience?

"2-4 weeks after the end of the promotion period"
So hypothetically, no-one should know yet, since the promotion runs until December 15th 2014.

Eujeanie Nov 11, 14 10:26 am

:rolleyes: Yeah, I just saw 2-4 weeks and "assumed" it was after sign-up. Sorry.

I'm antsy to pull the trigger on a points stay and just need a few more points (and I don't want to buy them) so I'm a little anxious at the bit here.

I'm not sure if a stay is then physically required to trigger this - but that should be all. There is nothing special about the link, it just takes you to the page to update your preferences.

I still would like for a Lurker to comment whether this was a targeted promo or not, i.e. for those of us that didn't get the email but signed up for the Stay More Nights promo and chose our Preferences, will we get the bonus?

This bonus is open to all members who register for SPG More For You and update their spg.com profile with their stay preference(s) within the parameters of the stated terms and conditions.

Does it matter which order we do it in? I clicked on the one link first in the email, and that was the one for updating my profile, and so I did that first. Some minutes later I went back to the email and clicked the other link and registered for the promotion. I got no confirmation email for the SPG More For You registration (even though I got two different kinds of confirmation emails for the profile update!), but when I tried right now to register for SPG More For You again it says I'm already registered.

The T&C's (posted in the Wiki) say, "Updates made prior to registration are eligible, but only if the update falls within October 15 to December 15, 2014."

Just a hypothetical...what if you have NO changes? What if everything in your profile was already the way you wanted it to be? Do you have to change "something" to get the bonus points?

Click something. Update. Un-click that something. Update again. :p

Eujeanie Nov 11, 14 1:44 pm

Yes, I did just that. But wondering "why" if everything was fine.

IIRC, the new "stay preferences" profile option, which you have to update in order to qualify for this bonus, was introduced with the new website launch on October 15, so this hypothetical situation will (should) not arise.

Thanks to the OP and others for the information on this. Not a huge bonus, obviously, but glad to get 500 points each for my wife and myself.

There has always been a "stay preferences" profile option. It was just expanded to add the Platinum preferences. It used to just have things like smoking/non-smoking. Therefore, this situation definitely arises. I had to add some bogus perferences just to force a change for +1's account.
