    I dont know if Im doing something wrong, but I would like to have more than one credit card registered in my SPG profile. Some stays I pay with my corporate card, others are for my personal account and I would like to pay with a different plastic.... cant the website allow me to have more than 1 credit card stored in the system and allow me to select which one to pay with...?

    Thanks.

    Just one card is able to be stored; however, you don't have to use that card at check-out, unless of course you are booking a pre-paid rate.

    Wow.... perhaps this could be put forward as a suggestion for future website updates...? Hilton and other sites allow you to store multiple plastics, I think this would be a great addition to your already fine website. Im surprised this hasnt come up before.

    I guess this is more of a "big deal" for me since Im the king of el chepo pre-paid rates.... :oops:

    Not a huge deal, yes, but inconvenient.... perhaps it would be a good thing to have the marketing gurus know about and perhaps they will choose to build in this feature...?

    (I will get off the soap box now)..... :p

    Thanks for the suggestion. The marketing & web gurus are already aware of member wishes in this area; however, I have nothing to offer as to when/if that will actually happen.

    But, since you brought it up, if SPG were to add additional credit card storage space for your account, what's the number of credit cards that you'd like to see storable to your online profile?

    Hi William.... I think that two cards as a minimum, although Ive seen some sites that allow up to five cards to be stored. Given the variety of cards out there and the different scenarios that can come up, I dont think that, say, a three card storage option would be something difficult for SPG to offer. Thanks for asking.

    My 2¢ - 3 is a reasonable maximum. Definitely one for "general" business and one for "general" personal, but sometimes there might be a second (or third, etc.) business, etc. that we have.
