I have never done any Matress running and I thought this new SPG promo would be great to get my feet wet. https://www.starwoodhotels.com/pref...tration/terms_conditions.html?promoID=N4R_FAQ I am already a SPG gold member and thought this would be a good way to qualify for Platinium. I can stay at a my local renovated SPG for about $100 taxes included. This would yield me 1000 bonus points, 250 points welcome gold gift, the bonus points for using my SPG Amex and Ofcourse the stay counted toward Platinium. I wanted to know other MP members thoughts on this and from SPG Platiniums if status is worth doing the runs for?
