Starwood, the Westin / Sheraton / W / aloft / Luxury Collection etc hotel group, has announced its promotion for the final quarter of the year.
Called “More For You“, it is a very simple one:
You will earn double Starpoints on every SPG stay of two nights or more between September 15th and December 15th
You will earn triple Starpoints if your stay includes a Friday or Saturday (Thu/Fri in the Middle East)
Unfortunately, it is not quite so straightforward in practice:
A long list of hotels have decided not to participate including almost all of the UK ones
You need to register your SPG account to take part
You need to register by 30th November, even though the promotion runs until 15th December
Registration is available via this webpage. Because of the November 30th cut-off, you should register now just in case an unexpected Starwood stay crops up in early December.
