Earlier in the week I wrote about the teasers that Starwood was releasing about their forthcoming SPG: Nice Choice Promotion.
At the time the only hints that the SPG gave were:
ALL ABOUT YOU
CHOOSE WHEN, WHAT AND HOW YOU WANT TO EARN
Now we have learned that:
1. There are three different promotional periods that you can choose from May/June/July or June/July/August or July/August/September.
2. You can choose from free weekend nights, elite bonus nights towards SPG status, extra Starpoints, Starpoints redemptions awards, merchandise discounts etc.
It is still unclear at this point i.e. how many nights/stays you need for a free weekend night award. In the past two summers it has been three stays for a free night.
This promotional period would also indicate that the next global promotion won’t start before October this year. Considering that the previous promo has already ended and you need to choose three months over five month period, there is going to be three month period up to October when there aren’t any promotions.
