Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) members that stay 50 nights during calendar year have been able to choose from number of reward options for hitting the nights. You can see the 2015 options herec.
Now, SPG is now making changes to the options at the 50 nights level by introducing more options for those that stay the 50 nights this year.
You can access Starwood’s website for SPG 50 here.

Here are the new options to be introduced on Monday:
• 1 Free Night Award (Category 1-5) valid through 12/31/17
• 5 Elite Qualifying Nights
• Free Rental up to 5 Days with Silvercar (US only) valid through 12/31/17
• 40% off your favorite hotel bed
• 10 Suite Night Awards
• Gift Gold Status
• Donation to UNICEF
Last year, I had to change my SPG account address back to States to be eligible for the $100 Amazon gift code. The options for those outside of the US were dire.
I personally consider Suite Night Awards (SNAs) to be worthless. There could be some value IF they could be confirmed at the time of booking rather than maximum five nights before of your stay.
It is good, however, that Starwood is now introducing more options to choose from. The free night Category 1 -5 award is probably the best one.
