SPG’s latest promotion is a bit more exciting than signing up for keyless entry or changing your security questions. Members now have the chance to win one of four prizes by drawing virtual cards online — the catch is you’ll have to visit the SLS Las Vegas, one of Starwood’s new Tribute Portfolio properties during an eligible stay.
For a limited time, SPG members will have the chance to win one these of four prizes:
- Earn 500 bonus Starpoints per stay (up to 1,500 Starpoints total)
- Earn 1,000 bonus Starpoints per stay (up to 3,000 Starpoints total)
- Earn two $25 Uber credits per stay
- Earn a night at any participating Category 1-6 hotel
The free night is most likely the best prize, although the Uber credit or bonus points might also be worth a trip if you’re already planning to visit the area. To take advantage of your prize, you’ll have to stay at the SLS Las Vegas by April 30, 2016 and be on an eligible stay — meaning you’d earn Starpoints for your visit. Luckily, stays at this property can be quite affordable with most rates hovering around the $100-mark.
Since the free night can be used at a Starwood property up to a Category 6, this could be a great deal as notable Category 6 properties include Le Parker Méridien New York, The Westin Paris – Vendôme or The St. Regis Bangkok. Additionally, the Uber credits are also valuable — if you haven’t signed up for Uber yet, you can use promo code UberTPG to get $15 off your first ride.
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.
- Earn 25,000 bonus Starpoints® after you use your new Card to make $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months.
- Earn 2 Starpoints® for each dollar of eligible purchases spent on the Card at participating SPG® & Marriott Rewards® hotels. Earn 1 Starpoint for all other purchases.
- No Foreign Transaction Fees on International purchases.
- Receive free in-room, premium internet access. Booking requirements apply.
