Better Tomorrow Promotions – Starwood Preferred Guest is now having a “Better Tomorrow” promotion whereby you can get 40% discount for the second day if you pay regular rates for the first night’s stay. So if you stay at a SPG hotel for 2 nights and you pay the regular rate for the first night, the second night is 40% off the regular rate. If you stay for 4 nights, you will receive 40% discounts the 2nd and 4th nights. This promotion is valid until 31st December 2012 and is good only for non restrict room rates. Here is the link to the promotion page.
Better By the Night Promotions
Here is a quick recap on the Better by the night promotions by Starwood. Starting 1st October 2012 (yesterday) until the end of the year, you can earn double Starpoints if you stay for one or two nights at their hotels. If you stay three nights or more, you could earn triple Starpoints. You do have to register by 15th November here to earn the extra points.
But SPG is also offering more ways to earn points. For example, if you book your stays through their iPhone app, you earn 500 extra points. If you book through their website (spg.com), you get 250 points (they are telling you to book direct and bypass online booking sites!). And if you check in via FourSquares, you earn 250 points. This requires linking your SPG account with FourSquares. I’m a little weary about checking in this way because when we check into hotels, we always like to ask for better room, or to make sure our room request is honored. So “e-check-ins” do not really appeal to me.
20% Discount for AAA/CAA members – If you are a member of AAA, Starwood is offering a up to a 20% discounts, breakfast for two or $100 credits depending on the hotels that you choose. This promotion is good until the end of the year and is valid in only select hotels. The website says that there some minimum stay requirements though I am having problems finding it!
