500 points for booking online in platinum key-holder

Has anyone ever looked inside the silver paper key-holder you get at checkin (as a platinum). Inside, it says something about 500 points everytime an online booking is done on spg.com.

Is that statement just outdated? I can't remember the last time I got 500 points for booking online. Is there anything I am missing here?

Expired Online Promo

SPG had a long running promotion a couple of years ago to promote online bookings, and at that time was awarding 500 bonus starpoints per online booking. I believe this perk expired December 31, 2002, and I also believe that the "500 online" reference in the platinum key folio dates to that initial promo.

As you already know, unless there is a special promo happening, you certainly don't get 500 bonus points everytime you book (would be nice)
