Starwood releases first details of its Spring promotion

The Starwood Hotels Quarter 1 2013 promotion will be called “Power Up”.  There is a holding web page now available although you cannot yet register.

It is certainly a straightforward one:

  • You will earn 2,000 bonus Starpoints for every 4 nights (nights need not be consecutive) up to 16 nights
  • You will earn a 10,000 point bonus on your 20th night

This is not uber-generous – with a Starpoint worth 1.5p – 2p in my mind, you are effectively getting an extra £10 per night in rewards.

This obviously accelerates if you hit 20 nights, but the qualifying period is only January 15th to April 15th.  Given the relatively modest number of SPG properties in Europe, that will be very tricky.

I will let you know when registration opens up.  Competing promotions from the other chains should drip out over the next couple of weeks.

Remember to read our ‘Hotel Promos‘ page for details of all the current offers from the major hotel chains.
