Need some advice as the SPG website was unclear. If I book a stay with points, will I get a stay? I'm sitting at 48 nights this year and I'm worried about losing my platinum status.

Also, I would be interested if anyone knows of additional cheap ideas for how I can get credit for a stay without spending too much money.

Points

Yes

Yes, award redemptions count as stays, so you will get credit for the nights.

Yes

Just book some shitty low level Sheraton or Aloft or something in your home town and check in - stay if you want or don't. Just find cheapest SPG property a stay is a stay.

When you’re on point to lead a call, and your manager is on the call, is it normal for them to constantly “add points”/interrupt you every minute? I’ve had a couple managers and noticed that every one of them that did this, didn’t add any value beyond what I was saying most of the time. On the contrary, when I had SMs or MDs on the call, they never interrupted.
