SPG Gold for 1 night stay: MasterCard offer in Asia Pacific

I had actually written about this promotion about a year back, and I thought I’d post a reminder now. Starwood has had a promotion going on with MasterCard for a while, and open till July 2015, where after registration, with just one stay paid with your World MasterCard, you get Gold Status on Starwood Preferred Guest. The usual stay for Gold is 25 paid nights, and the benefits that come along are 50% more Starpoints, a welcome gift, 4 pm late checkout amongst others.


For those of you who have an SPG account, or sign up with a new account, with an address on file in the Asia Pacific region (ex-Japan), you can benefit from this promotion if you have a World MasterCard or a WorldElite MasterCard issued in the Asia Pacific. You basically need to make one qualifying stay (revenue stay) at a participating SPG hotel, the list is here, and pay for all your expenses using your World/WorldElite MasterCard. In 4 weeks after completing the stay, your account will be upgraded to Gold, and you’ll receive your new upgraded SPG credentials soon after. The full list of Terms & Conditions is here.
