I plan on staying at the Westin Maui for 5 nights and have SPG gold status.
If I spend 1,500 points on a room upgrade, will I be further upgraded at check in due to my gold status or is it a waste to spend the points for the upgrade since I will be upgraded with gold status anyway?

gold doesn't guarantee an upgrade

Can I spend the 1500 points or so on an upgrade at check in or it has to be before?

Question:

I just upgraded to Gold since I have amex plat.

She said I get 50% bonus on starpoints, however it is only when purchasing a hotel stay from one of the SPG hotels.

The email I received states: "Three StarpointsŪ per eligible U.S. dollar spent, a 50% bonus over Preferred members"

the email seems like I would get 3 points per dollar spent no matter what.

Anyone know the deal?

I was just on the phone with them booking a night, and requested that they reinstate my gold status (after it expired in February), and she suggested to enroll me in the platinum challenge starting from May...
Lo and behold, I check my account online later today, and it says I'm a gold member... I guess YMMV :)
something like that with me as well, I was gold, expired in march and called a few times they said that they cant give it to me for free and I cant take the challenge for some reason  :(

Hi,
Just realized I'm pretty close to the 30k spend on my SPG to get gold status. Deciding if worth it to go for it today. Would returns in 2017 for purchases in 2016 count  against the $30k spend? I would think yes but figure doesnt hurt to ask.
