Check If You’re Eligible For Starwood’s New Member Exclusive Promotion

Every so often Starwood offers Select Member Exclusive promotions, where members are targeted for different offers. Typically members will be emailed when they’re targeted for a promotion, though often they aren’t, so you can log in with your SPG number on this page to see if you’re eligible. I’ve been targeted for offers in the past without receiving an email about it.

It looks like Starwood has just come out with some new Select Member Exclusives, for stays through April 30, 2018. With Select Member Exclusives, some SPG members are targeted for additional bonus offers.

You’ll want to log-in and see if you’re targeted. Of the five SPG accounts in my family, only one seems to be targeted for the offer, and that’s Ford’s account (and he wasn’t emailed about it, so this is why it’s valuable to check eligibility). His promotion is for 7,500 bonus Starpoints after two stays, in the form of 2,500 Starpoints after the first stay, and an additional 5,000 Starpoints after the second stay.

That’s a great offer — I value Starpoints at 2.2 cents each, so that’s like $165 worth of points after just two stays, even if they’re each one night. That also doesn’t include the points you otherwise earn. Others report receiving offers for double elite stay and night credits.

These promotions are stackable with whatever other promotions Starwood is offering, inclduing Starwood’s current global promotion, SPG Great Weeks, Grand Weekends. Through this promotion you can earn double Starpoints starting with your second stay, plus 500 bonus Starpoints when your stay includes a weekend night.

Bottom line

It’s always worth checking to see if you’re eligible for SPG Member Exclusives, as they can be a great way to rack up more Starpoints, or sometimes even get a fast track towards status. Unfortunately I wasn’t lucky this time around, though I’ve had my fair share of great offers in the past, so I can’t be too unhappy about that.

Were you targeted for a promotion, and if so, what’s your offer?

  1. How do you even find these offers!?!? haha I was targeted for 10k (and like Ford never received any email). Thanks Lucky! You make my life a lot more simple.

  3. I got a similar offer but not as good.
    2000 every 2 stays up to 6 stays for 6000 total.

    I guess if you combine it with the 500 per weekend, it’ll be about 1.5k points per stay.

  4. 🙁

  5. Got 2x elite qualification credit for nights and stays through April 30. Very pleased with that as getting platinum is a priority for me this year (travel schedules had me reach gold at both SPG and Marriott but platinum at neither last year…ugh!).

  6. Got this:

    ELITE STATUS — ON THE DOUBLE.
    We’re bringing you a special offer to help you reach SPG® elite status twice as fast. Enjoy elite benefits, including Free Night Awards, Award Flights, late checkouts, welcome gifts and more. Register by March 31, 2018, and you’ll earn double elite-qualifying credit on eligible stays between February 1, 2018, and April 30, 2018.*

  7. I got double credit on stays and points through the end of March, which is great because I have 10 nights (4 stays) in the next three weeks.

    Is there a way i could maybe call n ask them?

  9. Another big offer of NOTHING for me, maintaining my Lifetime Zero Status with SPG. How the heck did they pick their targets?

  10. Zilch…too bad too since I have a trip coming up with no hotel booked yet. My stays typically go to the highest bidder, guess SPG doesn’t want my in their corner…

  12. Perfect, I got the 2x stays and 2x elite qualifying nights. Just what I needed to my lifetime Gold this year!

  13. I received no offer – not eligible. Would be nice to see what status or data points from those who have.

    Me: spg member for about four months, platinum for about two. Spent about about 4K on ~30 nights since mid November accruing 70k plus points through promos.

    Just got an SPG cc and not yet completed spend.

  14. I got an offer to stay two nights to qualify for Gold status!!

    That’s a heck of a deal considering I just missed the requirement last year

  15. 2x nights 2x stays. sounds like quite a few people are seeing this one. Will go ahead and get a few things booked…

  16. 1,500 first stay, 2,500 second = 4,000 max points. Better than nothing but probably not enough incentive to move my upcoming stays.
