Earn 2,015 Bonus Starpoints With Your Next Starwood Stay!

Starwood is offering a nice social media bonus this year, which everyone is eligible for. You can earn a bonus of 2,015 Starpoints if you register and make a stay between now and December 31, 2015.

Here’s how the promotion is described:

Your feedback means a lot to us. Here’s an exclusive opportunity to earn 2,015 Starpoints® to thank you for all the valuable insights you’ve shared online this year. To enjoy your bonus, simply book direct with SPG® and complete one stay with us between November 30 and December 31, 2015. Thanks again for the input and keep up the great conversation.

Each SPG member can earn the bonus once, and bonus Starpoints should post 2-4 weeks after December 31, 2015 (though in practice I wouldn’t be surprised if they post earlier). A paid stay at a qualifying rate at any Starwood property in the world is eligible for this promotion. See the full terms & conditions for more details.

Bottom line

This is a very nice bonus on top of everything else Starwood is offering. I value Starpoints at ~2.2 cents each, so to me this bonus is worth ~$45. That’s pretty awesome for any eligible stay. Keep in mind that this can be stacked with Starwood’s “Stay For More” promotion (valid through December 20, 2015), as well as Starwood’s 2,500 point bonus for using SPG Keyless.

Do you still have an SPG stay this year which will allow you to take advantage of the 2,015 bonus Starpoints?

  1. This is awesome! I already have a stay booked to take advantage of the keyless promotion.

    Stupid Question:

    If I already booked a stay for late December, and I just registered for this promotion, will I receive the 2,015 points? Or do I need to cancel the original reservation and rebook? I assume I don’t have to.

  2. I read the T&C, but I couldn’t determine if it has to be a new booking or not. Do you think this will work for a stay I have already booked?

  3. Does this mean stays booked through AmEx are not eligible though? Says only through SPG digital channels…

  4. Man, you’re killin’ me. Now I’m going to have to make a mattress run. I’m already in the promo whereby you get 1000 for 1st stay, 2500 for 2nd, 3500 for 3rd – and I’m up to the third. I think they call it the Select Member Exclusive. Plus the keyless. Now this. So
    3500
    2500
    2015
    ——-
    8015 total, plus points for the stay and AMX spend. I’m going to be doing a lot of DRIVING to get there, but still I think it’s worth it for a quick 8K starpoints.

  5. What about a stay commencing on 31st December with a check-out on 2nd January? Will that be eligible?

  6. @Dan, @ Lucky: just confirmed with an SPG rep on the phone that a stay on points is not considered an Eligible Rate for this promotion. Has to be a rate that earns starpoints.

  7. I hope these 2015 points will show in my account soon. I had a stay planned, and just before the actual stay, I registered for this promo.
    Upto now, the stay (62 eur) earned me 2000 (BestRateGuarantee) + 2500 (keyless) + 500 (world rewards) . Let’s hope the 2015 points will still post for this stay as well (registration was done a day before the actual stay). Should I claim or just wait a few more weeks.

  8. @Katrien, I am also still waiting for my 2015 bonus points. I had registered well in advance of my stay during December. I’ve just reread this article to see if it mentioned when points would post. According to the terms we should give Starwood 2-4 weeks after end of promotion. So we’re still within that specified timeframe.
    I hoped they would be a bit faster but they aren’t.
