There’s been a lot of chatter about Starwood’s next promotion, but no official word from Starwood. As a Starwood Platinum, I’ve been pretty unimpressed with their offerings thus far this year and was hoping for a killer promotion for this fall, something like the You Choose promo of 2008 where I was getting 25k bonus points for each 10 stays.

The rumor is that the promo will be double or triple points based on how many nights you stay through the end of the year. It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it seems underwhelming enough to be an SPG promo. Will keep you all updated once the official Starwood reps confirm.
