There are highlights and disappointments in the new Starwood Preferred Guest promotion. Is your SPG glass half full or half empty?
The Best of the Rest is my effort to summarize all the travel/miles & points stories that interested me on a daily basis but didn’t have time to write about in length. Culled from over 100 blogs/authors I follow, some are passed along without comment, while I add my analysis to others. This is your shortcut to find out what’s going on in the travel world without having to read dozens of travel blogs to get all the best info.
Earning lots of Starpoints is hard, especially if you don’t have lots of hotel stays. They don’t have any bonus categories with their credit card, nor much in the way of earning partnerships. So, any extra is a plus.
Double points on all flights takes the complication out of bonuses. Just check to see if you’re eligible for this promo. I haven’t seen Southwest run too many promotions of this nature. Hoping it becomes more of a standard thing as they ratchet up competition with Alaska/Virgin America.
“Normal” folks who don’t fly for a living and don’t spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on their company credit card need to take notice when offers like this come out. See how to register all your AMEX cards today to earn double points through the end of 2016.
Take a moment to register for the new SPG promo. Double and triple Starpoints are worth your while for the 30 seconds it’ll take to register. There is a list of participating properties, but it appears it’s a pretty healthy list. Chances are if you’ve got a SPG hotel stay coming up you’ll be able to earn some extra Starpoints.
Starwood Preferred Guest has a daily contest you should start playing immediately for a chance to win free points and vacations. They’ve also announced their promo for the remainder of 2016. Here are the details…
Starwood Preferred Guest is out with their next promo of 2016. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but certain travelers will benefit from it. With the promo starting in May, there’s virtually no gap from the previous promo.
