A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about how you can earn 200 Starwood Preferred Guest points for free by updating your email preferences.
This is a different deal – 150 SPG points, which I value at £2 or so, for updating your security details.
The link to update your security preferences is here. They want you to add some security questions to your account for added verification.
There is no mention on the Starwood website that you will receive 150 points. However, if you look at this Flyertalk thread, you will see an official announcement from SPG that the offer is on.
The only ‘rule’ is that this offer is not open to brand new SPG members who joined after 8th October.
The deadline for setting your security questions is 31st October.
