I recently requalified for Starwood Preferred Guest Platinum, and was a little surprised to receive a renewal gift shortly thereafter. It’s not like they haven’t offered gifts in the past, but they’re usually once the year was completed.
And now, since they have different versions of Platinum (read more about that on Milepoint) I wasn’t sure if those gifts would be reserved for people who have stayed 75 nights or more.
I don’t know a Hulu from a Hula, so I suspect I’ll go with the $25 award. The only other thing that surprised me was that they actually mailthe certificate. You know, like the US Postal Service. Guess they’re trying to prop up the economy.
A nice surprise, a bit unexpected!
