Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) has launcehd its 2014 Q3/Q4 Promotion called “More for You” which is for stays between the 15th of September and 31st December 2014.
You can find the link to the SPG Promotion here – you must register before the 31st October and prior to your stay:
What’s the Promotion?
Earn double points (total 4 points/$1 USD) for weekdays and triple points (total 6 points/$1 USD) for weekends. The definition of weekends depends on what region of the world you are staying:
- Weekends: Friday or Saturday night in your stay.
- Middle East region weekend is a Thursday or Friday in your stay. If one of the nights in your stay of two nights or more includes one weekend night, then you earn triple points.
So this promotion is only really going to benefit the leisure traveller, or those staying over weekends – and it has to be a minimum of two nights, with no adjacent Cash+Points or award stays (according to the FAQ).
This seems to be a pretty rubbish promotion with not much to offer, IHG has just brought out a much better “Big Win” style promotion that I posted about the other day which if you are new to the IHG program would yield much better results.
The “More For You” promotion also has a very long list on non-participating properties, which makes this even less attractive:
You can find the rest of the terms and conditions here as we well as a FAQ page.
Why You Should Sign-Up Anyway!
Generally I tend to sign-up for all of these promotions just in case I forget when making a last minute booking, or when work has booked a hotel for me – sometimes I find the extra points a nice bonus! Remember to register here before the 31st October here.
SPG also have a promotion on for extra points on Dining at Starwood properties.
