Last year, SPG tweaked the award categories of quite a few hotels after announcing the big time Starpoints devaluation.
We monitor all the award changes and this week SPG changed the award categories of the following two hotels UP!
Starwood Preferred Quest (SPG) just announced their Q2/Q3 double/triple Starpoints Earn Away-promotion for stays between May 1 and July 31, 2014. The registration for this offer ends of June 30.
You earn double Starpoints for all stays and triple for stays that include Sunday (Saturday in the Middle East).
Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles has two offers for flights taken in May 2014. You can earn 50% bonus award miles on select international flights & most of the same cities are also available for awards at 25% off.
Note that the terms and conditions state that the bonus miles offer is not valid on “promotional” fares, but those fares are not identified.

A LoyaltyLobby reader from Dubai sent me an email earlier today about IHG’s website featuring their “beach” hotels in Dubai and pointing out to me that IHG doesn’t have a single beach hotel in Dubai.
This is not a problem with only IHG but the practice is widespread where hotels try to associate themselves with places such as Beverly Hills or Los Angeles even when they are miles away.
Few years ago, the DOT (Department of Transportation) required that the airfares advertised in the United States should always be inclusive of all taxes/fees.
Now, the airlines are trying to lobby the house that the airlines wouldn’t be required to include these taxes/fees on the advertised/displayed base fares.
The airlines claim that this would be more transparent as the consumers could easier see the amount of taxes/fees of the total airfare. This is, of course, nothing but a blatant lie.
Marriott Rewards has a weekend stay promotion for stays at Marriott and Renaissance hotels in Amsterdam between March 26 and June 5, 2014.
