This fall, Starwood is offering the chance to earn up to 10,000 bonus Starpoints by staying at a Tribute Portfolio property. Although there are only two hotels currently open — The Great Northern in London and the Royal Palm South Beach Miami — a third is slated to open in Palm Springs later this November. Starwood will also be adding properties in Florida and Japan in the near future.

The promotion requires you stay at a Tribute hotel this fall between October 12 and December 20 — you’ll earn 2,000 Starpoints for each eligible stay. Be sure to register with Starwood to take advantage of the promo. The Great Northern and Royal Palm are both Category 5 Starwood properties, and cost about $300-500 per night depending on travel dates. Alternatively, each require between 12,000 and 16,000 Starpoints for a free night.

You can earn even more points by signing up for the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express, which offers 25,000 bonus Starpoints after $3,000 in purchases in the first three months. You can also earn 25,000 bonus Starpoints after $5,000 in purchases in the first three months with the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card, which comes along with the added benefit of Sheraton Club access. Note that you can pair this Tribute bonus with Starwood’s other promos, including SPG Stay for More.

Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express

There’s no telling how much longer these cards will be around and available for new applications because of the Marriott takeover, so now might just be the perfect time to apply. Apart from hotel redemptions, you can transfer Starpoints to over 30 airline partners, and now also transfer points from Starwood to Marriott Rewards at a 1:3 ratio, opening up even more redemption options.
