Starwood’s fall promotion, “Better by the Night,” runs today through December 20, so be sure you’re registered for that. Through it you earn double Starpoints for stays of up to two nights and triple Starpoints for stays of three or more nights. Beyond that you earn 250 bonus Starpoints per stay booked online, or 500 bonus Starpoints per stay booked using the iPhone app.
It looks like they’ve sweetened the promotion even further, since they’re also offering 250 Staropints for checking in on Foursquare during your stay.
As you can see they’ve updated the details on the promotion page to reflect this:
You can link your Starwood and Foursquare accounts here.
First you simply have to sign-in with your Starwood account information.
Then once you’re logged in select the Foursquare box on the left, as they aren’t offering any bonus points for Facebook check-ins through this promotion.
On the next page you’ll be asked for your Foursquare log-in details, and the next page will give you confirmation that your accounts have successfully been linked.
This promotion is actually getting pretty decent for one night stays. A $100 stay will net you 200 base Starpoints, 200 bonus Starpoints through this promotion, 100 bonus Starpoints if you’re elite, 500 bonus Starpoints if you booked through the iPhone app, and 250 bonus Starpoints if you check-in on Foursquare, for a total of 1,250 Starpoints. Not amazing, but not bad either. Keep in mind that all of this can be stacked with the Aeroplan promotion, which is an easy 5,000 Aeroplan miles for staying a total of five nights at any Starwood properties between September 10 and December 9.
