Starwood Promotion Speculation

Right now we are in limbo with SPG as their last double/triple point promotion is over and a new one is yet to begin. During this time many people (myself included!) are very anxious to learn about the next promotion. The last few years we have seen free night promotions starting May 1st where if you stay X times you get a free night certificate to use by X date.

However, after spending some time on Facebook last night, I came across a new post from SPG, which states:

“Your Friday dose of nice: It’s good to have options, especially when it comes to your travel schedule.
With the upcoming SPG Nice Choice promotion, members can choose their earning period from 3 options: May-July, June-August, or July-September. Registration starts May 1st at Watch for more posts with exclusive promotion details.”

A commenter then said:

“The promotion would be 3 months, you decide when May – July or June – August or July – September.
you choose what you want to earn, for instance Choose from Starpoints, Free Weekend Night Awards,
Starpoint® Redemption Awards, Merchandise Discounts, or Elite Bonus Qualifying Nights.Will vary with a choice of 12 offers, and the majority are based on nights”

While this does not give us all of the details we do know that the promotion will be different than last year, maybe better and maybe worse. It looks like each account will have the option of registering between three time periods. Either May through June, June through August, or July through September. It then seems like in addition to the time period you have to select, you can also choice a bonus option that fits your travel needs. There will be 12 different options, which seems kind of cool. I am typically a fan of the free night awards, so I am hoping for a “stay 2 times, get a free award night,” but realizing this might be a lot to ask for!

So while registration does not open till May 1st, my assumption is that more details will unfold prior to that. I’ll make sure to keep you all posted as I am sure you are just as anxious as I am!

Any other speculation you’ve heard?

  1. Does this mean that we won’t see a Q3 promo? This basically covers all of Q2 and Q3, but you only get to pick 3 months for the promo period. Let’s say I pick May-July for my period and you pick July-September.

    • @steve- my assumption is that this promotion will run through end of September, regardless of the time period each individual selects. I then suspect another promotion will not start until October, but potentially not until after the new year. Starwood usually doesn’t run a promotion over the Christmas holiday an has at least a one month break in between promotions.
