Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) used to mail with their yearly kit “Elite Thank You” certificates that Gold and Platinum members could give to those associates that go extra mile.
These certificates went electronic few years ago when those kits were phased out. SPG ended this program effective December 31, 2017 and the current certificates all expire on June 30th.

List of Available Certificates:
Here’s an Example of Certificate:
The certificate has an expiry date and a serial number. You can give this number to an agent with whom you communicate over the phone or electronically. Otherwise, you can just hand the printed one.
The “Elite Thank You” certificates are worth 500 Starpoints each (at least Platinum ones are) to the person that receives them.
These are good way to reward those SPG or hotel employees that treat you well. You still have roughly two weeks left to give out the certificates that were awarded last year that all expire at the end of this month.
Here are the terms and conditions of these certificates:
