Starwood is in the midst of their global SPG promotion for the first trimester of 2016. The promotion, called Take Two, is offering double points on stays of two or more nights during the promo period – January 11th through April 30th, 2016 – at all of their hotels worldwide.
Members will need to register for this promotion online at spg.com/taketwo by April 10,2016. Through the SPG Take Two promotion, Starwood members will get bonuses for stays between January 11 and April 30, 2016.
- Earn 2x Starpoints at all properties worldwide for stays of two or more nights
- Earn 250 bonus Starpoints per night for stays at select properties worldwide
The 250 bonus Starpoints per night can be earned at the following participating hotels . Even though Starwood currently has 74 hotels in India, not a single property is listed under the bonus points offer.
Additionally, the more you stay during the promotion, the more you’ll earn. This is a new addition SPG made to the promotion recently after realising perhaps that they had a dud promotion on hand.
- 2500 bonus Starpoints when you reach 15 nights
- 7500 additional bonus Starpoints when you reach 25 nights
That makes it a total of 10,000 bonus points for members completing 25 nights under the promotion period.
Starwood offers a wide range of hotels under the ten brands listed below. With over 1200 hotels across 100 countries, the chain also has one of the largest hotel footprints across the globe.
Bottomline: Even though it is great that all Starwood hotels are participating under 2x Starpoints offer, this promotion does not do much for one night stayers unless staying at properties that offer 250 bonus Starpoints. For me, it is also disappointing to see that no Starwood hotel in India is participating in the bonus Starpoints list.
