Just a quick note that registration is now open for the Starwood ‘Take Two’ promotion that I wrote about on 8th August.

Here is a summary of what I wrote earlier:

“Starwood, the Westin / Sheraton / W / aloft / Luxury Collection etc hotel group, has announced its promotion for the final quarter of the year.

Called “Take Two”, it is a very simple one:

You will earn double Starpoints on every SPG stay you make between September 1st and December 15th

You will receive an extra 2,500 Starpoints for every 5th night, up to a maximum of 10,000 extra Starpoints

Unfortunately, it is not quite so straightforward in practice:

Over 150 properties have decided not to participate including three of the UK ones

You need to register your SPG account to take part

You need to register by 31st October, even though the promotion runs until 15th December”

To register, go to this website and fill in your SPG details.

    I can’t think of many HFP posts that don’t get any comments!

      Yep, it’d be a shame to leave this one out 😀 I think the problem with this (and the Hyatt promos that get a lot of coverage on the US blogs) is the small number of UK properties, especially when some of them are excluded! Always worth registering though, you never know if you might end up making use of them!
