Via a brand new promotion, from July 30 – August 30, 2015 those who have the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express or the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Amex can earn 1,000 bonus SPG points when you register for the promo and stay two or more eligible nights in SPG hotels!
This is on top of the other promos available such as the “Make it Count” Summer promo that runs through August 31st and the Sheraton Free Weekend Nights Promo that runs through September 30th (get details on both of those promos here). The two eligible nights for this new promo do not have to be consecutive, and stays booked prior to the promotion are eligible as long as they happen during the promo period. Free Night Awards and Cash & Points Award nights are not eligible.
Presumably this new promo is at least in part to help promote the new card benefits that kick in on August 11th. As a reminder, those new perks will include:
- No foreign transaction fees
- Complimentary in-room, premium Internet access while staying with SPG participating hotels on reservations booked with an eligible channel
- Free, unlimited Boingo Wi-Fi on up to four devices at more than 1 million Boingo hotspots worldwide (enrollment required)
- Complimentary access to Sheraton Club lounges for SPG Amex business cardholders
The annual fee will also be increasing to $95. You can get more details about all of these coming benefits in this post.
