Starwood just launched another points promotion for guests. The hotel chain often awards its guests bonus points for completing certain tasks, ranging from trying out SPG Keyless to staying at a new Tribute Portfolio property. This latest promotion is a bit simpler than most – through the end of the year, SPG members can earn 2,015 Starpoints for simply registering online before your next stay.

TPG values Starpoints at 2.5 cents apiece, so you can potentially get more than $50 in value out of this promotion — a pretty good deal if you already have a stay planned at a Starwood property. Keep in mind that like other SPG promotions, you can expect your points to post within 2-4 weeks of the end of the offer. Moreover, we recommend that you check the full terms and conditions to ensure that your next stay is eligible.

Remember to also register for SPG’s Fall 2015 to earn double Starpoints on your stays through December 20. You can also earn bonus Starpoints with the Starwood Preferred Guest Amex card, which is currently offering a 25,000-point sign-up bonus after you spend $3,000 within the first three months.

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.
