not sure if this is right thread but just got retention bonus for spg spend $500/one month, get 7,000 spg points. thought that was better than spend 2k in three months for $75. if there is a better thread to post this in, please advise

Tried multiple times with no luck, so cancelled business spg and got full refund of AF. Now debating whether to wait 1 more month (AF is prorated so would cost $8) for consumer spg and see if can get any retention bonus. Thoughts ????

Was billed on 4/24 making 5/24 the last day for a full refund.

Heard the same from multiple reps ---- consumer AF is prorated while business AF is not.

Does the $30,000 needed to spend for gold status need to be on the Same starwood card or is combined between all the starwood cards you have?

I understand. but why usually, do they sometimes count 2 accounts as one?
