Back in September I wrote about the Starwood promotion for mid September to mid December called ‘More For You’.

Starwood, the Westin / Sheraton / W / aloft / Luxury Collection etc hotel group, was offering:

double Starpoints on every SPG stay of two nights or more between September 15th and December 15th

triple Starpoints if your stay includes a Friday or Saturday (Thu/Fri in the Middle East)

Starwood SPG

The promotion is working as it should – I received double points for my stay at the St Regis in Doha and my wife received them for a stay in Madrid.

Starwood has now added an extra carrot to the promotion – 500 SPG points just for registering and updating your details.

Registration is available via this webpage. At the bottom of the page it now says:

Update your stay preferences on your spg.com profile to personalize your stay and earn 500 bonus Starpoints® from October 15 to December 15, 2014.

The small print says:

My Stay Preferences bonus: Registered members are eligible to receive 500 bonus Starpoints when updating the members spg.com profile online between October 15, 2014 and December 15, 2014. Updates made prior to registration are eligible, but only if the update falls within October 15 to December 15, 2014. The bonus will post to the registered member’s account 2-4 weeks after the end of the promotion period. All members who are registered for the More For You promotion are eligible for the My Stay Preferences bonus regardless of whether they have an eligible booking in the promotion.

The key point to note is that you MUST register for ‘More For You’ in order to get the 500 bonus points but you do not have to do a stay.  Simply register via this link, then go to spg.com to log-in and make a minor tweak to your stay preferences in your online profile and you’re sorted!  You will find the ‘My Stay Preferences’ menu under ‘My Profile’.
