Expiration Date – August 30, 2015
Starwood is rewarding Starwood Preferred Guest credit card members 1,000 bonus Starpoints for just two eligible stays before August 30, 2015. Simply register to start earning!
Once registered, stays booked through Starwood with at least one eligible paid night between July 30 and August 30, 2015 will count toward this offer. Free Night Awards and Cash & Points Award nights are not eligible for this offer. The bonus Starpoints will be credited to the member's account within two to four weeks after the second stay.
This promotion is Starwood’s way of highlighting the additional card benefits that begin August 11, 2015. The annual fee will also increase from $65 to $95 at the same time.
For this higher fee you will enjoy these benefits:
No foreign transaction fees on international purchases
Complimentary in-room, premium Internet access while staying with SPG participating hotels
Free, unlimited Boingo Wi-Fi on up to 4 devices at more than 1 million Boingo hotspots worldwide (enrollment required after August 11, 2015)
SPG Business Card members enjoy complimentary access to Sheraton Club lounges at participating hotels
And Starwood Preferred Guest credit card members continue to enjoy these core benefits:
2 Starpoints from American Express and 2 or 3 Starpoints from Starwood Preferred Guest depending on elite status level for all eligible charges at Starwood hotels and resorts
1 Starpoint for every eligible dollar spent on all other purchases
Gold Status after spending $30,000 in a year on the card
An annual credit of 5 nights and 2 stays toward SPG elite status awarded each February
It’s nice to have a few additional card benefits. It would have been nicer if the benefits were optional - allowing an opportunity to forgo the additional benefits and stay at a $65 annual fee each year. But for those who travel internationally, enjoy premium Wi-Fi during their Starwood stays and Free Boingo access all over the world, you may reap much more in benefits than the $30 additional membership fee. And, for business card holders, the Sheraton Club Lounge access is a valuable benefit!
