I am such an idiot for not reading SPG Keyless contest T&C (or reading Dan’s post slower)!

I have not yet had a chance to test out the new SPG Keyless entry. It is simple to find out if your phone works inside the SPG App as you can see above. When I got my phone, a Samsung NOTE4, it would not work, but it does now.

But there is also, till the end of the month, a daily click drawing for SPG points and more. I did not blog it as just about everyone else at BoardingArea did.

Maybe I should have taken the time and looked at the T&C more carefully (or read others’ posts on the drawing).

You see it seems very simple. You follow the screen shots as you see above and can, per bloggers like Mommy Points and Pizza in Motion, enter ONCE per day or daily. To be fair they did include links to the T&C but I am lazy sometimes ( I know, bad blogger).

And notice even the SPG wording tells you to come back tomorrow to try again. But wait! Not so fast! Notice this next page when I tried to enter again and again:

What I should have seen, but did not, was the wording from Points with a Crew who posted you can enter “twice per day“! (Gosh, I need to read slower Dan)

So I feel like an idiot and I have missed out on 20×2 shots at winning great SPG stuff (twice in my account and twice for my wife as I take care of all the clicking for stuff like this for us both). What you should to take away from this is simple, because one blogger posts about a topic does not mean you should not read the same post from another blogger as they may find a little gem the others missed! 😉

Anyway, please tell me that I am not the ONLY one who missed this little gem in the T&C? – René

    Yes, there is a lot of information out there being added daily, so do not beat yourself up! I have been doing this since the promotion began and still have yet to win anything.

  2. I read your blog and immediately raced back to SPG and to lose again! Oh, well. Better than leaving an opportunity on the table.

    Thanks, Rene, for once again blogging with an honest-to-goodness useful tip. Love ya!

  3. I saw it in another blog after about 5 days but the double entries have not helped as I’m still a loser. 😉

  4. ooops! I missed it as well – there are so many duplicate emails and posts from companies and the many duplicate bloggers that it is hard to keep alert when so many are about the same thing. Therefore I have deleted many opportunities.

    Foolish me?
