    I just bought 20,000 points for $525 (25% off promotion) in order to cover a reservation that was costing me $711. I used my SPG Amex and am a gold member. Do I get the extra 3 points for being a gold member on the purchase or is that for hotel stays only? Hoping to get 4 points total.

    Not sure. Check the Starwood/SPG thread in the American Express forum.

    No.it's processed by points.com so no category bonus there

    Got the extra point for SPG spend. Wasn't expecting it. Just an FYI.
