    Does anyone have experience with this provision of the T&C?

    If an old buddy moves in temporarily and needs some points, is that ok? Is this something that SPG watches? [for lack of a better term]. Reported problems later on if at some point I want to transfer to a different person, eg, my significant other? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    You should be fine as long as you can proof that the other person does reside at your address. They do check and verify, especially if there is recent change of residence.

    I don't want to appear to be too ignorant here but verify how? Are we talking a utility bill or what?

    And thanks

    There is an extended thread on FT regarding this, I do not remember details.

    My wife recently, unbeknownst to her, transferred all her points to my account (to protect them from expiry as I have an SPG Amex and she doesn't). We have different last names, but has lived at my address for many years :). No proof was required.

    However, she has been living at that address for many years and more likely her SPG account was also registered to that address.
