UPDATE – OCTOBER 2020:  This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.  We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above. 

Click here for our article on Marriott’s current ‘2,500 bonus points’ promotion which runs until 10th November 2020. You can register for the offer by clicking here.

Starwood Preferred Guest is keen to get you to book via their mobile phone app, and is willing to bribe you with SPG points to try it!

You will receive 500 bonus SPG points per stay up to a maximum of three stays.  You MUST pay for your stay with an American Express card to receive the bonus.

SPG app

The bonus runs until 31st March 2015.

You MUST pre-register by visiting this page on the Starwood website.

If you have any Starwood stays planned, this is a no-brainer.  I value SPG points at 1.5p each based on recent redemptions, so you are looking at an extra £7.50 ‘rebate’ on each of those three stays.  It will also combine with whatever general promotion Starwood rolls out for the January to March period.

Remember to register here before you book.  I will add this deal to our ‘Hotel Promos’ page where you will also find a summary of other major promotions for the big chains.

    OT So I’ve got a few thousand Amex MR points sitting there. Is there any point in waiting for a bonus conversion to Avios? Did it ever happen?

  • RIcatti says:

    AMEX MR bonus to Avios has not been seen in years now. I now think of one-time 50% bonus in the past (was it 2013?) as a burst of marketing activity + BA needing cash in that financial year.

    It seems that the promotion code field that lets you save tons of money is missing in the app.
