Latest hotel promos are out. My vote is for SPG if you 1) are Plat, 2) have the spg Amex, 3) can do 1-night stays. You should earn close to 7k/night if your hotel rate is $145/night.

Green choice (250/500 pts per day you opt out of housekeeping not including the check-in and check-out days) != the Plat arrival gift (250/500 pts on check-in)... for a normal M-Th travel week hopping daily would get you plat arrival x 3, vs staying at the same place and making a green choice for 1x arrival bonus and 2x green choice, effectively giving you the same number of points.

For those looking for info on the new SPG promo it is posted at www.spgpromos.com. 1k bonus points per stay for certain hotels, 500 bonus points per stay for lower level hotels, and 10k bonus points when you hit 25 nights

I read the promo very differently. First off I don't think it was sent to everyone and second I thought it was first night you received a bonus of 2500 and second stay was 5000. So the total bonus you could get was 7500. And I thought this was a one time thing not an every week

You mean for personal travel? We can't use personal cards to book.

Not seeing the latest promos for SPG. Did you receive an email?

Yeah, not seeing it either on EY Travel Yammer

How?

Marriott has a pretty good promo too, stay 2 nights, get 1 night free.

My mistake. Meant to say 2k spg points which converts to 6k Marriott.

Base points * Rate (4*150) + 500 bonus + Amex card (2*150) + promo (1000) = 2400 spg points night. Napkin math

Sucks if you stay 4 nights instead of just 3 (M,T,W nights). But also add on another 1-1.5k for make a green choice!

ACN1, how so? You make more points. The key is that you have to hotel hop every night.

You don't get the points for making a green choice if you hotel hop for the "stay" points benefit. So it seems the extra 1k pts/stay is only if you hotel hop every night. If you stay at one hotel all week, you get the extra 1K pts once and green choice.

Green choice = plat arrival gift. Try to keep up ppl 😂

Amex promo would push in favor of hopping though if per stay

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
