Frequent Flyer Bonuses just posted that he received a targeted SPG offer (via email) which is similar to the previous targeted “Bonus Beginnings” offer which I wrote about here. If you are targeted it looks pretty lucrative.
You access your eligibility here. Check, you never know!
It seems that if you are targeted you could get a free award night after one paid stay:
complete one stay between August 1 and October 31 and get a free night award at a Category 1-5 hotel that can be redeemed up to December 31st.
Unfortunately the four accounts I manage was not targeted. If you do get targeted for a free night it’s not a bad idea to do a mattress run as a Cat 5 free night award can be worth it at a nice hotel. I am assuming that theses are for new/lapsed (elite) members who haven’t stayed in a while, but I have no idea, as 3 of the accounts I manage have gold status and a few nights this year, and one other is a dummy that’s never been used.
Leave a comment if you got (or didn’t get) anything!
