Hilton and Marriott have already shared their fall 2015 bonus points promotions — now it’s Starwood’s turn to vie for your business. While perhaps not as lucrative as the chain’s summer promo, which promised 1,000 bonus points on weekend stays of two or more nights, this promotion does offer an opportunity to take home quite a bit more on more expensive bookings.
This time around, you can earn double Starpoints on stays of 2 or more nights, plus an additional 500 points when you stay 3 nights or more. The promo period runs from October 1 through December 20, 2015, and like other past promotions, there’s a lengthy list of properties that aren’t participating, including most of Starwood’s Manhattan hotels (though not the new Aloft). All members will earn a total of 4 Starpoints per dollar spent — elite bonuses will still apply, of course, though they won’t be doubled.
As usual, your stay must be eligible to earn Starpoints in order to qualify, so you can’t make a reservation through most third-party booking sites (though Citi Prestige 4th Night Free bookings would be eligible). Additionally, award and cash & points stays don’t qualify for the promotion. Bonus points should post two to four weeks after checkout, though in my experience they show up much more quickly than that.
You’ll also earn the usual 2 bonus Starpoints per dollar on Starwood charges billed to your Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express. Additionally, this card is currently offering 25,000 bonus Starpoints when you charge $3,000 in purchases within the first three months. You can register for SPG’s Stay for More promo here.
