    I was very surprised today to be able to book a FREE room in a parador for my fall trip. It's not like I have a ton of points or anything - but I had enough.

    If you like to stay in paradores make sure to have and use the card. Even if you just go for a drink at one you can use it, I think.

    You can sign up here: Paradores - Amigos Card

    Hi Shannon, It says on the Parador site, which you´ve linked to that you can get your card at the parador you stay in or when you make a reservation online.

    I thought points were only for overnight stays, have to look into that one.

    I got mine in 2009 after I had reserved online. I had the reservation # and emailed it to them. They then sent me the card.

    Regarding how to get points - it says on the website:

    "They are awarded upon paying your bill according to the following table:
    Type of bill Euros to obtain 1 point
    Accommodation and/or restaurant 3
    Special Services 12"

    I am not sure what special services are. But it looks like food at least will get you points.

    Indeed food in the restaurant garners points; a drink and snack in the bar doesn't (at least not for us!)
    Also be aware that there is a time limit regarding non-activity on the card.

    Bummer and.... good to know about the non activity. But I will try to use my card in the bar just to be on the safe side.
