UPDATE – JUNE 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
You can currently buy Marriott Bonvoy points with a 30% discount. See this page of marriott.com for details. The offer runs to 20th June.
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.
The bonus runs until 31st March 2015.
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.
