SPG’s First Promotion Of 2018 Is Leaked Early

We still have a decent amount of time left on the current SPG promotion, but it seems information has leaked about the next one.

I reported on the final SPG promotion of 2017 a few months ago.  There were positives and negatives.  It isn’t often that promotions wrap around the holidays.  The current one does, which is a nice plus for members as long as your desired hotel is participating.

Now, One Mile at a Time seems to have info about the first promotion we’ll see in 2018 from Starwood Preferred Guest.  Ben must have a better memory than me.  He notes that SPG offered this same promo in 2011.

The promo will feature double points on all stays, plus 500 bonus points on weekend stays.

Importantly, we don’t know if all properties are participating.  I’m betting they aren’t.

It’s great to know what the first quarter looks like so business travelers can decide if they want to plan around this promotion.  We don’t know all the promos being offered, but this is a good start.

Stay tuned….

  1. @ Ed — The FCQ and I just hit 50 nights last night for another year of SPG/Marriott Platinum. Annoyed at the hotel for lying to us about the availability of suites, we reviewed our stays for 2017 and found that we had been given TWO suite upgrades (over 8 nights) without raising hell, and we had to ask for those. We were not automatically upgraded EVER in 2017 as a Platinum, and arguing with the front desk every single stay gets old after a while. We are done with SPG. Loyalty should be a two-way street.
