    I appreciate that this really is an SPG cc-related post, but since there are no sub-forums within the SPG AmEx info. thread -- didn't want to confuse things! [​IMG]

    Anyhow, I noticed this entry in my SPG activity:[​IMG]

    I was pleasantly surprised to see this, and had not been aware that this bonus existed! Did all cardholders receive this?

    How LOYAL were you to SPG last year? I did not get such a bonus, then again, I did not stay at any SPG properties and used the card very little as I was busy meeting minimum spend requirement on other cards.

    I had stays connected to SMD2, & a few other leisure stays, but have no idea what the threshold to 'qualify' as a 'loyal' SPG customer was![​IMG] I do use the SPG AmEx for all my Costco purchases, though![​IMG]

    I got that too and assumed it was my bonus for referring a new cardmember.

    Ah, that makes sense, -- I was expecting to see some notation that it was a 'referral' bonus, as opposed to a 'loyalty' bonus![​IMG]

    Hoping I get one of these soon :) ......Does it go by referral date or does it only show up after a period of time thereafter (like maybe first use of card by person you referred)?

    I referred someone 1-2 weeks ago and it appeared on in SPG account already.

    3 Referrals posted within the last week for the business card.. Woohoo! I've been hyping it on another board that I frequent.

    I just got: +15000 SPG AX LOYALTY BONUS

    Does that mean 3 referrals, or might it be something else? Does everyone else get them in 5000 chunks or combined?

    My last referrals came in one at a time, but they were all clustered a day or 2 apart.
