Starwood launched a promotion that was targeted to SPG members whose accounts were based in Greater China for bonus points and nights for visiting 6 or 8 brands this year.
You would get 5 bonus elite qualifying nights after visiting 6 brands and 15,000 bonus Starpoints + a surprise gift after visiting 8.
You can access SPG’s website for tracking your progress here.
The 15,000 bonus Starpoints posted within couple of days after I had the 8 brands visited back in November.
The bonus nights (useless for me really) should have posted right away after registering for this promotion, as I had already stayed at the number of brands required, but they didn’t before late last week.
This was a nice offer for those of us that qualified based on where our SPG account address was set.
Has anyone received the surprise gift from SPG yet? I hadn’t received as of early last week when I was in Hong Kong last time. Would be nice to know what it is.
I might as well do one Element stay before the end of the year. Two years ago Starwood gave a surprise gift (free nights!) for those SPG members that had stayed at all of their brands during that calendar year.
