    Wanted Milepointers to be the first to hear a few details about SPG’s next promotion, SPG Nice Choice. This promotion will be all about you. Members will have the unique opportunity to choose when, what and how you want to earn at any of our more than 1,000 hotels and resorts worldwide that participate in the SPG program (that’s right, no opt-out list!).

    That’s more choice than ever, and an industry first. Registration begins May 1, 2012 (a ‘coming soon’ page will be up shortly at spg.com/nicechoice). We’ll release more details about the types of Awards and offers on Facebook and Twitter over the next several weeks, so don’t forget to “like” and “follow” us.

    Best regards,

    William R. Sanders
    Social Media Specialist

    Tough to be excited without knowing the details of the promotion, but it is good news on the opt-out list. Frankly, on a few of the recent promotions, it seemed like more properties opted out than participated!

    Having a number of stays in Q1 in Asia and more planned in Q2 & Q3, this is good enough for me right now.

    Just speculating that there will be options based on weekday vs. Weekend stays, the length of stay, the brand we stay at, and whether we will get points or something else like free nights or hotel credit.

    I do like that all properties are part of the promo. Hopefully my quiet 1st quarter of business travel will not repeat itself in the 2nd.

    Agreed - with two trips in early May, this would be helpful to me, so I don't fall in the dreaded no promo days :)

    Not sure which hotels you are staying at, but SPG is running a promotion of 1000 pts per stay in newly renovated hotels called Renovations Worth Celebrating.

    I bet the running joke at SPG at the moment is "How do you keep an idiot in suspense?"
    " I`ll tell you later!"

    Please release some hints soon!

    Note the use of the word "nights" so it is nights not stays!
