Hotel promotions have been pretty lackluster in 2013, with the occasional bonus point opportunity. Starwood just announced today that their first 2014 promotion will be an extra 2,500 bonus points for every 5 nights- up to 20 eligible nights (10,000 points). If you hit 25 nights you also get a 5,000 point bonus.
SPG Bring on the nightsYawn. 500 extra points is nice, but even if you get the full 15,000 points, that is half of the points needed for a free night at a top tier property. This pales in comparison to past promotions (I remember the days of up to 100,000 bonus points or free weekend nights). Heck, even their current Take Two promotion (Sept 1- December 15 stays), which offers the same 2,500 bonus for every 5 nights plus double Starpoints.

The good news is that all properties are participating, which is a nice change from the long exclusion list on some past promotions.

Registration begins in mid-December and you can sign-up for a reminder at this page.

Here’s to hoping other hotel chains will launch more creative/lucrative promotions in 2014!

    Yawn. Bring back 3 stays = 1 resort night. Now, that was a loyalty building promo! Make it stay 5 if too many people were participating, but bring it back!

    This isn’t the best SPG promo ever, but its better than no promo. Thanks SPG!

    it’s that age old problem of product management. Are you just rewarding your loyal customers or are you bringing in new business?

    unfortunately that was during the recession, and now they are able to charge way more, offer less….
    Has me hoping for recession again almost…..that was by far the best promotion ever!!!!! Got 10 free nites total at W south beach on that one!

    Am I missing something here…Marriott throws out a Mega Bonus a couple of times a year. Does Starwood just not care? Seems to me that until Starwood matches the Maga Bonuse, I’d prefer to stay at Marriotts, no?

    I was approved for this card and they did not give the extra 20K points after 5K in purchases. I just called them and submitted a request to make the adjustment.
