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.

SPG-More-For-You-2

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

SPG-More-For-You-1

As a reminder, with Starwood you ordinarily earn:

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.

Bottom line

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.

  1. Most of my weekend travel for work includes Sundays, not Saturdays, so that’s kind of annoying. 🙁 Still not a bad promotion, though. Between this and the current Hyatt promotion, things are looking good!

  2. Lucky, I’m not sure that your calculation 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” is correct. The offer terms state:
    “Elite-level extra Starpoints earnings and other bonuses will not be doubled or tripled. Only the base two-Starpoints-per-dollar earnings are doubled or tripled.” I guess that also means that the 2 points for using the SPG credit card will also not be doubled or tripled.
