I have a reservation within 5 days from now with an SNA applied and it hasn't cleared. There are plenty of suites available on Spg.com for purchase. Any advice?

(I'm still unclear If SNAs are supposed to have capacity controls or not. I was under the impression there are none.)

So I can make a reservation for someone with my Spg account by adding them at a guest. What if someone already has a reservation could I add my Spg to a already existing reservation? What if it was booked through Priceline?

If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill

I've gotten stay credit and points for third party bookings by filling out a missing stay request after. Though officially you don't get stay credit or points.

I had a $100 off 100 or more hotel and four points sheraton Scranton was $108 so I got it for $8.
I'm sure you've spent a lot of time there:)

Looking a property, when i search 3 days at once, the SNA level suite isn't available, but when i search 1 night at a time, it is available.
Does that mean the only way for my SNA to clear is if i make 3 separate reservations?

The 3 day ressy cleared even though there was no suite showing available online for a 3 night stay.

Go figure.
