While this has already been blogged about by others here at BoardingArea I know many only read DeltaPoints each day so I wanted to make sure you knew about the latest contest SPG has going until 7FEB2014. As you can see I won 500 points today worth $10 to me as I put just about 2 cents in value on SPG points (we all have our own formulas of what any point is worth). Not bad for taking 10 seconds of my time plus I have a shot at winning a bunch more points as well!
They have, at some hotels, some scratch off cards to get you more free spins. If you are staying at an SPG hotel over the next few weeks why not ask for one (or two-ish) of these cards as well.
Also, any day now the new 5000 points per night IHG PointBreaks list should come out. The last round was less than amazing but did yield for me some nice saving for rooms when I was on mileage runs. One of the best values in points cards going is the 80k Chase IHG card (not my link and at the bottom of the list of cards).
Between my Platinum status from SPG (much thanks to my SPG cards giving me stay credits) and my free Platinum status from the IHG card I am all set for 2014 for hotels but will favor SPG as full benefits for award stays are much more reliable than IHG! – René
