Those extra 2k points are worth $20...is your time really worth so little? 🤔

Get 4K bonus pts instead of 2K? (stays of 2+ nights earn you 2K in bonus pts)

If you are trying to bank as many points as possible and build status, then absolutely. I've done it in the past and it can be a pain, but can be worth it.

Status isn’t relevant but I would do it. Anytime the bonus is tied to stays I’ll max it out. It’s a little annoying but I can pack up and move easily.

Agree with SC1. I can keep myself busy with more important stuff than to move hotels: sleep, gym, food, social contact or even work. I don’t know what the hotel costs, but those 2k points are ~10% of the total points I’m getting per stay. Staying a week longer on the project = getting the additional bonus by moving for 10 weeks total (compared to a week on the beach). Better use your time to work hard & keep getting staffed continuously (and thus in hotel); that will truly maximize your points.

Can someone post the link to the megabonus? I didn't get anything and can't find it online

I did this with spg for years and got three stays a week. Would just switch between the same 2 hotels. Do it
