Around this time last year, Starwood began rolling out SPG Keyless, which lets you skip the front desk and unlock your room door at select hotels using your smartphone or Apple Watch. Now, to help drum up interest for the new service, the chain is offering 2,500 bonus Starpoints when you book a stay at a participating Aloft, Element or W hotel and pay with an American Express card, such as the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express.
You must meet the following requirements to get your bonus Starpoints:
- Register by February 29, 2016
- Stay at a participating Aloft, Element or W hotel and use SPG Keyless during your stay
- Add an American Express card to your SPG profile and check out with that same card
- Complete your stay between now and February 29, 2016, but stays can be booked before the promo period begins
TPG values Starpoints at 2.5 cents each, so you’re earning $62.50 worth of points through this deal, in addition to the points you’d normally earn for a Starwood stay. This offer does appear to be valid for customers who have used SPG Keyless in the past. It’s obviously worth participating, so if you’re planning to visit a participating hotel between now and February 29, be sure to register, download the SPG app and enable Keyless before your stay.
