Happy Monday, readers!
Registration for Starwood’s fall promotion, titled “Better By The Night,” just opened today and I want to spend a few minutes today to talk about it.
- Earn double Starpoints on eligible stays of 1 or 2 nights
- Earn triple Starpoints on eligible stays of 3 or more nights
- Earn 250 Starpoints for eligible stays booked on spg.com
- Earn 500 Starpoints for eligible stays booked through the SPG App for the iPhone (sorry Android users!)
This promotion runs for hotel stays from October 1, 2012 to December 20, 2012. Registration for this promotion ends November 30, 2012.
For anyone thinking about any of the six Starwood brands for their hotel stay this fall, this is a great promotion to get in on. What I particularly like is that you get the bonus 500 Starpoints for simply booking via their iPhone app! For those of you who don’t have an iPhone, I highly recommend you borrow a friend’s iPhone to book; you can just delete the app from their phone after you’re done booking. That way you still score the bonus.
I suspect that Starwood is trying to get more publicity and awareness for their newly released app, so chances are this kind of bonus points for using the iPhone app won’t coming back in the future.
SPG American Express cardholders: remember to book using your SPG AMEX for additional Starpoints on top of the bonus! While this promotion may not necessarily warrant going out of your way just to stay at a SPG property if you aren’t already planning on traveling, it is a great way to boost your Starpoints if you are happening to travel this fall.
When booking your stay, you should also check to see if the hotel property you’re thinking of is one of the non-participating hotels on this list.
Be sure to register for the promotion today. All you need is your SPG number.
