    Hi MP'ers.

    When we take up an offer @ SPG's http://www.beatthetimer.com/ website, [ which offers pre-paid special rates in many of their hotels ] do we get points for the overnight rate and incidentals?

    Thanks so much for your responses and experiences.:)

    Even better, if the US were included on those deals. But I guess, this will "justify" more mileage runs. :)

    There have been threads and posts on the BTT rates before, the most recent being http://milepoint.com/forums/threads/spg-beat-the-timer-open-only-for-72-hrs.28900/

    The rates as William confirms are fully eligible for credits and points, but there have been instances where credits have not posted and the missing stay request has yielded a response from customer services that the rate isn't eligible. This still happens from time to time, but will be credited eventually if there is a problem.
