Quote from: Dan www.dansdeals.com/archives/82272
SPG Platinum is easy to achieve with the help of Starwood Consumer AMEX and the Starwood Business AMEX and I matched that to Hilton Diamond and Hyatt Diamond. One DDFer got SPG Platinum without any stays after I pointed the way for him to do it via the elite nights awarded by the SPG cards.

Can someone explain this?

IINM, you just need to link a bunch of different peoples Amex SPG cards to one starwood account, and each card will give you additional stays.

Is it possible to add a SNA to a reservation online or I need to call?

I'm trying to book a 2 night stay at the 4points in Miami beach.
When I search each night separately there's no points availability.
Only as a 2 night stay there is.
I tried calling and the rep wasn't able to book it with my cat 5 certs because they can only be used on one night reservations. Any advice? TIA

Do I need to pay using my Amex SPG business card in order to access Sheraton Lounges, or just showing them the card is good enough?

Also there was a $10 tax when using a cat 5 cert, is there always tax at the four points in Miami beach?
I figure every DDFEr has booked that hotel at least once :)

Shouldn't the Personal card work too? Or is this benefit only for Business?

Only business gives Sheraton access.
