Sandals Impliments Changes To Their Sandals Select Guest (SSG) Point Program.

Sandals Resort's & Beaches Resort's are excellent about rewarding their past guests with promotions and points earned on previous stays.  Any first-time guest at Sandals or Beaches Resort is welcome to sign up for the FREE Sandals Select Guest program (SSG) and earn points on their stays to use as credit towards their next stay!  

For those already familiar with the SSG program, you will soon find a slight change in the way points will be earned.

Today, Sandals announced to it's top specialists that Effective November 15, 2013, Sandals Select Points will be calculated on the room NET rate paid, not the rack rate.
