Starwood is incentivizing its members to use their members to use the SPG app when checking in for their hotel stay. Between now and June 15, 2018, you will receive 250 Starpoints for simply checking in via the app. It is super easy and there is no reason not to get those extra points! And the best part is there is no cap at the number of points that can be earned!
Approximately 48 to 72 hours prior to your stay, you’ll receive a notification asking you if you’d like to check-in using the app. On the day of your arrival, you’ll receive a notification on your mobile device letting you know that your room is ready and a key is waiting for you at the front desk. And if you do not like the room you were assigned, you can always ask the front desk for a different room.
