I just contacted the SPG via Mail with the Question about my missing 500 Points and they replied, this Promo was only valid in Combination with a Stay.

I can not read anything about this - am I misinformed?

What should I tell them to get the Points?

No, you don't need a stay for earning the points. What you needed to do is register for the last promo of last year.

And thats what i did!
But, as the Points did not post in my Account, I contacted the SPG-Customer Service. And they replied, that I am correctly signed up for the Promo, BUT the Points were only awarded, if a Stay was booked along the way.

So again: What shall I do? Does anybody still have a Screenshot of this Promotion?

The T&C is in the Wiki.

https://www.spgpromos.com/moreforyou...RYOU_PROMOTION

Here's the relevant section and I've bolded the relevant condition. It is pretty cut and dry and there should be no questions at all assuming a) you signed up for the More For You promotion and b) you updated your Stay Preferences sometime between 10/15 and 12/15.
