When you use your points to pay for a stay, is it possible to earn points? At first I was curious about if I were to skip the housekeeping services, but now I'm wondering about other things as well?
Yes. For example, if you stay at a full service Marriott or similar property (where you can earn points for "qualifying charges" such as food and beverage), you will earn points if you charge those purchases back to your room. You can also earn points for skipping housekeeping.
Yes. You can earn points on all food and beverage purchases, in fact on anything that is not included in the room rate. Also with SPG you can earn points by choosing to use the Green Choise.
It is important to know which brands allow you to earn points on "qualifying charges."
In the chart below, you'll only earn points for your additional spending at the brands in the first column.
Glad someone has researched this. Spent a significant amount of $ in China on 2 free rooms. I was hoping to get some points for the meals and such.
