When transferring points between spouses, who needs to call? The transferer? transferee? both?

Thanks

I've got a SPG promo that gives me a free night cert for each stay (up to 2 stays). Anyone know if booking 2 rooms on the same date counts as 1 stay or 2?

Why do I never receive these promos?

Counts as 2 towards status.

It was on the homepage for me when I logged into my account.
Usually I don't look at the big splash screen stuff, but I looked closer this time, and was pleasantly surprised!
Certs good for 1 free Cat5 (or lower) night each.

Good chance the fine print excludes it from being on the same night. Read it carefully. My assumption is if it's not in the fine print you should be good to go.

The fine print mentions:
Quote
An eligible stay is a stay with at least 1 eligible paid night at any of the over 1,200 participating Starwood hotels and resorts paying an eligible paid rate during the promotion period.

So I think it should work.
Thanks again!

it's always a YMMV. It's also a plat benefit to have early check-in and up to 4:00pm check out. Almost makes one night worth two nights in that case.
In your situation, they will give you an area, but if it's really needed, then a friend can book you a room on plat and request early check in. (They can even ask in advance and it may be available...)

Gold status helps for that as well
