Starwood has announced their first quarter promotion, “Great Weeks, Great Weekends,” which runs from January 3 through April 15, 2011. Basically, you earn double points on all stays, and 500 additional points per night, for stays on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Registration will be required, though won’t be available until January 3, when the promotion starts.
While this isn’t a bad promotion, it’s nothing to get excited about either. It’s certainly not “mattress run” material. Then again, based on the amazing promotions we’ve seen in 2010 in the travel industry as a whole, I have a hard time imagining 2011 will be as great. Though I seem to say that every year. Bring on the 200,000 mile credit card sign-up bonuses, one free night after every stay, and triple elite qualifying miles promotions for the whole year! 😀
Curious to see what Hyatt comes up with…
