    Starwood is offering 250 free SPG Points for signing up for “The Insider”, their newsletter. You can see the promo on their facebook page wall. To sign up for The Insider and receive your free points, just click here and fill out your information. After February 1st, they will send you and email to retrieve your account number, and award you your points! Fast and easy ~ this promo only took me 2 minutes.

    Note that this is not a general Starwood or SPG newsletter, but rather specifically from the Charlotte Westin.

    I also registered for it a day or two ago. I received a welcome e-mail from the hotel but no asking for my SPG #. I replied asking how I get my points... No response as of yet.

    Per their facebook page comment on that particular promo:
    Not the most efficient method, but as long as the points post...

    I got the email asking for name, SPG #, city, state and country of residency. From a gmail account.

    Same here. Kind of odd that it's coming from gmail? I think I'll wait on sending my info.

    I wanted to post, as some people were holding off sending their details due to the Gmail account it was sent from. My points posted in my account a couple of days ago.

    I have confirmation from The Westin Charlotte that their generic email address charlotteinsider@gmail.com is indeed legitimate, so feel free to send them whatever details they asked for to that email address.
