If you’re a Starwood Preferred Guest elite member (that’s perhaps a bit behind when it comes to re-qualifying for status in 2016), you may have received an offer to speed up your elite earnings over the next few months. TPG got just such an offer in his inbox today, making him eligible to receive double stay and night credits at any Starwood hotel between April 1 and June 30, 2016. Registration is required — enter your SPG number here to see if you’re eligible.

Oddly, the offer email features an image of a Delta 747, even though this particular deal has absolutely nothing to do with a co-branded partnership:

I didn’t receive the same offer myself, but I’m well on my way to re-qualifying for Platinum status, thanks to a few hotel stays and the 10 elite-qualifying nights I earned from the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express and its business version, the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express.

Based on the graphic Starwood’s including in its promo email (seen above), it’s possible that the chain’s feeling some pain from the very generous status matches offered by Hyatt, Hilton and other chains. I’ve already received thousands of dollars in value from my new Hyatt Diamond status, and while I’m hoping to re-qualify for both Hyatt Diamond and SPG Platinum (for 2016, at least), it’s going to be a challenge to get there.

If you haven’t received this particular offer, check your SPG Dashboard to see what else you may have been targeted for.
