Starwood Preferred Gust (SPG) has launched back in September their Explore More-promotion that is valid for stays between September 12 – January 15, 2018. The register, however, for this offer closes on November 30.
You can access and register for this promotion on SPG’s website here.

Here’s how the bonus Starpoints add up:
1,000 bonus Starpoints at the following SPG brands per stay:
- St. Regis
- Luxury Collection
- W Hotels
- Le Meridien
- Tribute Portfolio
- Design Hotels
500 bonus Starpoints at the following SPG brands per stay:
- Four Points
Note that there is a list of hotels on SPG’s website that have decided to participate to this promotion. You should check that the hotels where you have planned to stay at are participating.
It makes sense to register for the promotion even if you don’t have plans to stay at SPG properties by mid-January. You never know if your plans change and you cannot retroactively register after the registration deadline on November 30.
I have done well on this promo and will hit the 25 nights or the 10,000 extra Starpoints probably by the end of the year.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
Registration: Starwood Preferred Guest® Members must register online at spg.com/exploremore by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET), November 30, 2017. Registered members can earn bonus Starpoints® on eligible stays from September 12, 2017, through January 15, 2018 (the “earning period”), at SPG® Participating Hotels.
Earning: Registered members can earn 500 Starpoints for eligible stays within the earning period at participating Aloft®, ElementSM, and Four Points® hotels and resorts, and 1,000 Starpoints for eligible stays within the earning period at participating St. Regis®, The Luxury Collection®, W®, Le Méridien®, Westin®, Sheraton®, Tribute Portfolio™, and Design Hotels™ hotels and resorts. Registered members can also earn an additional one-time bonus of 10,000 Starpoints for completing 25 eligible nights at SPG Participating Hotels. Registered SPG Members may take advantage of other bonus promotions at the same time as this Promotion. However, each promotion will award bonus Starpoints independently of each other, and promotions are not combinable.
Bonusing: The bonus Starpoints will post to the registered member’s SPG account within two to four weeks after the qualifying stay posts.
Eligible stays and nights: An eligible stay is defined as one or more consecutive nights at the same SPG Participating Hotel by an SPG member who (a) provides his/her SPG member number at the time of reservation or at check-in; (b) pays an eligible rate that earns Starpoints as defined by the terms and conditions of the SPG program (spg.com/t&c); and (c) stays in one of the reserved guest rooms. If on the same day an SPG Member checks out of a guest room and then checks back in to a guest room at the same SPG Participating Hotel, it will count as a single stay for purposes of calculating stays.
An eligible night is defined as at least one night paying an eligible rate in the Promotion Period. An eligible rate is any rate that is eligible to earn Starpoints in the Starwood Preferred Guest program. A description of eligible stays and eligible rates can be found at spg.com under the program terms and conditions. See Section 2.1 for the complete definition of eligible rates. Note that certain prepaid room reservations — such as when the booking is made through a third party, including but not limited to travelocity.com, expedia.com, orbitz.com and delta.com — are not considered eligible rates and do not earn Starpoints or qualify for promotional earnings. Stays must be booked through any Starpoints-eligible channel, which includes a travel professional who books through those channels or the GDS. Stays will be processed for the promotion in the order they post to the SPG Member’s account.
