    Just renewed 2012 SPG Platinum status (thank you C&P!), and I received this e mail from Starwood giving me my choice of :
    To celebrate your Platinum status, we'd like to offer you the choice of a US$25 SPG® Award Certificate or a one-year subscription to the magazine of your choice, compliments of SPG.

    Anyone else get this yet ?

    PS- I did go for the $25

    This would depend on which magazines were on offer!;)

    I do not thin that most of those magazines cost near that much or you can get them much cheaper elsewhere.

    I saw the Platinum in the title and thought this was another person getting bumped up to Platinum at AA with only 40,000 miles.

    Received the "gift" with the choice of a $25 credit or 1K SPG points. Assume that was because I live outside the USA so magazine subscription would be more difficult to fulfill. Opted for the points. Gracious SPG. Hope they post soon with a couple of my additional Thursday and Sunday stay bonuses.

    Thank you for posting this. I must of missed my email for hitting Platinum again this year. Went back through my inbox and found it and requested the $25 Award Certificate.

    Just got this e-mail today. Will likely go for the points (seems like points are points worldwide, whereas $25 US rises/falls depending on locale/exchange rate). Nice gesture for sure, SPG. Thanks!

    Just email CS through the email form online or contact one of the SPG lurkers and they can look into this. I suspect it may be due to your communication preference or the email landed in your junk or spam email or maybe you're one of the unlucky ones where the email got lost in cyber space.

    I'm still waiting on my email too but i only requalified in early Dec so early days i figure.

    It was a bit strange...the stay credit had JUST posted. Maybe I just got lucky for when they run a sweep of the accounts or something. Not complaining at all. Impressive, actually. Another reason to stick with SPG! I should think any reflection would come thru in good time, and one doesn't "NEED" the status until their next stay anyways, as I think Platinum for 2011 lasts a bit into 2012.

    I was going to copy and paste all the 5 responses i got about this however i figured i cannot be bothered.

    I got first told to just go register online and when that failed i got told to get in touch with IT and then got told I should just wait and hope somewhere somewhere just happens automatically. So basically 5 emails later I am no closer to understanding whether or not i missed an email or whether it is still coming.

    I`ll wait another month and hopefully don`t get the same CS agent when i enquiry again if necessary.

    I kinda just gave up. I requal Plat in September I think, have had many stays since...double checked scrolled searched emails...nada. Oh well. I still like SPG just wish I had got the teaser :)

    When I wrote CS I was told that I didn't receive the e-mail because I had not signed up to receive e-mail promotions. I asked them to sign me up for promotions and if I could be provided with the award certificate, and they were kind enough to do so. Thanks to OP for making me aware of the $25 award and to Simon for suggesting I write CS.

    I guess contacting one of the SPG Champions would be out of the question, then.

    I hate bothering them with trivial things like this but good suggestion.
