SPG New Member Exclusive Promotion January 1 – March 31, 2017 (Post Your Offers!)

by -

Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) has launched a new promotion called New Member Exclusive for bonus Starpoints and perhaps for other awards as well.


Targeted members must sign up for the offer by February 28, 2017, and stay between January 1 – March 31.

You can access and sign up for this offer on SPG’s website here.

Here’s the offer that a reader had received:

  • 1,500 bonus Starpoints for the first stay
  • 2,500 bonus Starpoints for the second stay


I would assume that some members that linked their Marriott account to a newly opened SPG are targeted for this bonus opportunity.

As I pointed out above there are likely multiple offers out there. Please post your offer on the comments section below.

Here are the terms of the bonus Starpoints offer:

Earn 1,500 bonus Starpoints® for first stay and 2,500 bonus Starpoints for second stay.

Eligible member must register at spg.com/newmemberexclusive by February 28, 2017, 11:59 p.m. ET. Member can earn 1,500 bonus Starpoints after one (1) eligible paid stay and 2,500 bonus Starpoints after the second (2nd) eligible paid stay. As part of this promotion, member may earn a maximum of 4,000 total bonus Starpoints for two stays from January 1, 2017, through March 31, 2017 (the “promotion period”). This promotion is not transferable. Bookings made prior to the promotion period are eligible, but only eligible stays consumed during the promotion period will earn a bonus.

An eligible stay is a stay with at least 1 eligible paid night at any of the over 1,200 participating Starwood hotels and resorts paying an eligible paid rate during the promotion period. An eligible rate is any rate that is eligible to earn Starpoints in the Starwood Preferred Guest® program. Free Night Awards and Cash & Points Award nights are not eligible toward promotional Starpoints earnings. A listing of SPG-participating hotels and resorts and a description of eligible stays and eligible rates can be found at spg.com under the program terms and conditions. See Section 1.4 for the complete definition of eligible rates, but note that certain prepaid rooms where the booking is made through a third party are not eligible rates and do not earn Starpoints or qualify toward promotional earnings.

Bonus Starpoints will be credited to the member’s account within 2–4 weeks of the stay posting to the member’s Starwood Preferred Guest account following the first and second eligible stays.

This promotion may be combined with other Starpoints promotions in market during the same time; however, earnings are exclusive of each other.

    US based members only? Mine said ineligible, but click here to see “global promotions” which may apply.

  • No promos for me

    No member exclusive for me again. This is the 15th time I am member excluded 🙁

  • TimeforWhisky.com

    Lump of coal for me. I linked my MR and SPG accounts on day 1. Lifetime Gold member based in Asia.

    Since 2008… i have never been offered any targeted promo… SPG 100 here (136 nights this year). Insulting if you ask me.

    • Weird. All SPG members (myself included) have traditionally been eligible for one of these targeted offers every calendar year.

  • Lively

    I wasn’t eligible and my husband’s account was not eligible.

    My offer is “not eligible” 😐

  • “Not eligible” for me either. Platinum member but will barely requalify with my 25th stay this week!

    There’s a new member exclusive (selectmemberexclusive19)
    Double elite credits.

    • Yep. Just received a notice. Seems that it is both 19 and 20 this time around and my account was eligible as well. Writing about it now.
