    Note that this is not a general Starwood or SPG newsletter, but rather specifically from the Charlotte Westin.

    I also registered for it a day or two ago. I received a welcome e-mail from the hotel but no asking for my SPG #. I replied asking how I get my points... No response as of yet.

    Per their facebook page comment on that particular promo:
    Not the most efficient method, but as long as the points post...

    I got the email asking for name, SPG #, city, state and country of residency. From a gmail account.

    Same here. Kind of odd that it's coming from gmail? I think I'll wait on sending my info.

    That is indeed strange. Thanks HaveMilesWillTravel for pointing this out.

    I wanted to post, as some people were holding off sending their details due to the Gmail account it was sent from. My points posted in my account a couple of days ago.

    I have confirmation from The Westin Charlotte that their generic email address charlotteinsider@gmail.com is indeed legitimate, so feel free to send them whatever details they asked for to that email address.
