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.
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?
