Promotion

January 16, 2017 to April 15, 2017

SPG has announced the promotion for the first quarter of 2017. It has two parts and is slighty different than previous post. It is also the first promotion which is similar to the promotion run by Marriott Rewards at the same time. I assume, we will see more of such promotions in 2017, which will be the last years SPG and Marriott Rewards are run as separate FGPs.
All SPG members registering for this promotion will earn Double Starpoints for the first 3 stays during the promotional period.
The additional bonus after the three stays is different and targetted:

  • Variation 1
    After the third stay (i.e. starting with stay four)
    Achieve 20 nights and you will earn 10000 Starpoints.
    After 20 nights earn 500 Starpoints for each additional night, up to 5000 Starpoints

  • Variation 2
    After the third stay (i.e. starting with stay four)
    Achieve 10 nights and you will earn 5000 Starpoints.
    After 10 nights earn 500 Starpoints for each additional night, up to 5000 Starpoints.

You have to register prior to March 15, 2017 on spg.com/doubletake.

March 01, 2017 to April 30, 2017
Buy Points Promotion

Buy SPG Points (Starpoints) between March 01, 2017 and April 30, 2017 and you get up to 30% more points. The bonus is staggered, the more points you buy, the bigger the diiscount. 500 SPG points are not cheap with 17.50 USD, but the discount might be a good chance to top up your account if you need to book a stay prior to an increase in reward levels on March 07, 2017.

  • Buy 1000 SPG points to 4500 SPG points --> no discount
  • Buy 5000 SPG points to 9500 SPG points --> save 10% (5000 Pts are 157.50 USD insatead of 175.00 USD)
  • Buy 10000 SPG points to 14500 SPG points --> save 15% (10000 Pts are 297.50 USD instead of 350.00 USD)
  • Buy 15000 SPG points to 19500 SPG points --> save 20% (15000 Pts are 420.00 USD instead of 525.00 USD)
  • Buy 20000 SPG points to 30000 SPG points --> save 30% (20000 Pts are 490.00 USD instead of 700.00 USD)

Starwood partners with Points.com, if it comes to buying points on the promotion landing page.
