I goofed again, I got a mailer in the post and forgot to add the $60 off deal to my SPG card:
Just make sure you go to americanexpress.com/marriottoffer before you decide to spend the $300+ on room rates at a Marriott or SPG hotel. When I came across the mailer, I goofed again and I added it to my wrong SPG card (AU to my wife’s upgraded SPG Personal). I tried to add it to my SPG Lux and got this message:
In hindsight I would not have been elligible for this last venture because I think I need to spend at least $300 in a single charge. Here are the terms:

Anyways I went down to Champaign-Urbana to check on my cousins to see how their first week went and booked 3 rooms at the Townplace Suites by Marriott on Green and 6th street. It was a very nice hotel that gave a AAA discount of $87 a night per room. Today I got the room rates covered:
No doubt that the new SPG Lux card will give you up to $300 spread over over smaller room charges every anniversary year as well as the first year! Time to get another SPG Lux cards via SPG personal upgrade!
