Every so often Starwood offers “Select Member Exclusives,” where members are targeted for different offers. Typically members will be emailed when they’re targeted for a promotion, though you can also log in with your SPG number on this page to see if you’re eligible. I’ve certainly been targeted for offers in the past without receiving an email about it.
Well, it looks like Starwood has just come out with some new Select Member Exclusives, where some members have been targeted for offers. Again, keep in mind this is targeted, so some members will have offers, while others won’t.
You’ll want to log-in and see if you’re targeted. Unfortunately in this case I don’t seem to be eligible, though I know plenty of others are. It seems like some people are getting a double elite qualifying nights offer, while others are getting a tiered points bonus based on how many stays they complete.
I guess it’s only fair I wasn’t targeted this time around, given that last year I had ridiculously good luck with these promotions.
For example, last April I wrote about how Starwood targeted me for double elite qualifying nights, valid for stays through June 30, 2016. I was a bit surprised when in June my double elite qualifying nights promotion had been extended through July 31, 2016. Then in August my double elite qualifying nights promotion has been extended yet again.
These promotions are stackable with whatever other promotions Starwood is offering, so they can be combined with Starwood’s current global promotion, where you can earn double Starpoints for your first three stays through April 15, 2017.
While I was extremely lucky with Starwood’s Member Exclusive promotions last year, I’m not having the same luck so far this year (though it’s still early in the year). However, hopefully some of you are having better luck than I am, and are in fact targeted for one of these offers.
If you want to see if you’re eligible for a Member Exclusive promotion, see this link. Like I said, Starwood seems to add promotions periodically, so you’ll want to check back with some frequency.
Were you targeted for a promotion, and if so, what’s your offer?
