If you are a platinum member and you stay the night on points do you or should you still receive an arrival gift?
Every time I've stayed on points I've akways had the choice of bonus points or a market item.
I stayed twice this year on points. Both times , I was offered points or market item.
I've always been asked that question as well. Sometimes, when I check in and they see my point balance they give me both!
The answer is yes, when you are on an award stay you are still entitled to Platinum benefits.
I always have as well.
Yes, I have as well!
I have always received the arrival gift and on a few occaisions been offered the points as well.
Usually the question/response towards the arrival gift is....'you want the points, right?'
Then I ask what the market item is and usually take the points.....
