A few weeks ago I shared the details of Starwood’s fall promotion, More For You. While Starwood shared the details of the promotion at the time, they said that registration would only open on September 12.
Well, as promised, registration is now open for Starwood’s More For You promotion, and it will stay open until November 30, 2016. The promotion is valid for stays through December 19, 2016.
As a reminder, through this promotion you can earn:
- Earn double base Starpoints on weekday stays of at least two nights
- Earn triple base Starpoints on weekend stays of at least two nights (those that include a Friday or Saturday night, or in the Middle East a Thursday or Friday night)
- As usual not all hotels are participating in the promotion — here’s the list of participating hotels
As a reminder, with Starwood you ordinarily earn:
- 2x Starpoints per dollar spent
- Additional 1x Starpoint per dollar spent if you’re a Gold or Platinum member
- Additional 1x Starpoint per dollar spent if you’re a 75 night Platinum member
- Additional 2x Starpoints per dollar spent if you pay with the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express or Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express
So as a 100+ night per year Platinum member paying with my SPG Amex I’d earn a total of 8x Starpoints per dollar spent on weekday stays of at least two nights, and 10x Starpoints on weekend stays of at least two nights. I value Starpoints at ~2.2 cents each, so to me that’s a return of ~18-22% on Starwood spend for stays of two or more nights at participating hotels.
This promotion isn’t a reason to switch any stays to Starwood, though it’s certainly better than nothing. In general hotel promotions have been pretty complacent lately, and that’s not limited to Starwood.
