Check Your Email if You Only Have a Few SPG Stays

Just a quick note to point out an email I got, but Keri did not:


This offer doesn’t specify a type of chain you have to stay at, and the free night is eligible in any category 1-5 hotel.  Check your email because this is a great offer if you were planning on staying at SPG once this year.  It  may be worth staying at a Four Points to get a more expensive hotel stay cheaper.

(I say cheaper because you would still be paying for the Four Points night even though the more expensive night would technically be “free”).

Anyone else get this email?

Getting Starwood Gold Status with One Stay

In an earlier post, I lamented my loss of Starwood Gold status.  Gary of View …


  1. I got the offer but this is what mine said:

    Thanks for joining SPG® earlier this year — now, let’s get to know each other better. We know you’ll love it. Simply register before September 30, 2013, and complete one eligible stay between August 1 and October 31, 2013, at any of our more than 1,100 hotels and resorts, and your account will be credited with a Free Night Award* for you to redeem by December 31, 2013. Think night out in New York or beach time in Bali. This one’s on us.

  2. I also received a different offer:

    It’s always great to see you. We’ve seen you 12 nights over 5 stays* this year and we think you’ll agree: You’re ready to take your benefits to the next level. Normally, it takes 10 stays or 25 nights to reach elite Gold status, but let’s get you there sooner with this exclusive offer — we want you to enjoy even more rewarding benefits on future trips. Complete two more eligible stays between August 1 and October 31, 2013, and Gold status will be all yours. Simply register before September 30, 2013, and start staying. You’ll be Gold in no time.

  3. I NEVER get those darned offers! Drats.

  4. I got the same one as Derrik, 2 more stays for Gold. Unfortunately the offer didn’t take into account the stays automatically credited to me from my spg amex and I’m really only one stay away anyways!

    Last year I did get the stay one get one free offer though. Stayed at the Westin in Minneapolis for $80. Used my free night at the The Park Lane Hotel in London which goes for about $350 a night!
