  1. Interesting… If I update my address to my new Asian property I purchased and am moving to soon in the Philippines, is there any way to book a room and not have to stay that one night? I don’t think I can make it to Asia before July 31, but would love to take advantage of this offer.

  2. AWESOME thanks. Gonna try now esp since I’m staying in SPG 9 more days this month, and live in East Asia and have the CC.
