I have covered my lifetime SPG status achievements over the years first from nothing to lifetime Gold (read more here) and this spring to lifetime Platinum (read more here). It did take effort to get SPG to correctly ship the kit to my address, however.

My Lifetime Starwood Map (Show Us Yours!)

After a few mishaps, my lifetime SPG lifetime Platinum kit finally arrived this week with the map showing all the places I have stayed with the chain.

It seems that the map doesn’t show locations with hotels that have exited the Starwood system such as Kamp in Helsinki and Palace hotel in Copenhagen (I have stayed at these two for sure and no dots). Design Hotel stays are not registering either.

Starwood Has Problems Sending Out Lifetime Platinum Kits? (Perhaps Marriott Sends Me Book Of Mormon Instead?)

9 Comments

Back in late April, I qualified for the lifetime SPG Platinum status after 10 years of Platinum status with the program and more than 500 nights. I wrote about this at the time (access here).

SPG Lifetime Kit

SPG sends lifetime Platinum members supposedly a nice package with metal card and a map that shows all the destinations that one has been to. The reason why I use word “supposedly” is that Starwood has now unsuccessfully sent it to my address in Finland. Whether they have actually dispatched it or not, who knows.

And The SPG Lifetime Status Is Bagged!

Over the past couple of years, I have written yearly about my quest getting the lifetime SPG Platinum status. I had had the required nights in already for the past three years but was short in the number of years required for the status.

So, the other Thursday I had a 25th stay for the year at the Plaza Athenee in Bangkok that qualified me for the Platinum status for the 10th year.

SPG Lifetime Platinum Five Stays Away (Or 21 Nights)

5 Comments

Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) has lifetime Gold and Platinum programs as long as the program stays around (something should happen in 2018).

SPG Lifetime Platinum Five More Stays

When I started with SPG 10 years ago (later than with Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott & IHG), I had no idea that one day I would make lifetime Platinum with the program. As a matter of fact, SPG didn’t even have formalized lifetime program back in 2007.

Starwood Preferred Guest Gold & Platinum Status Challenge 2017 (Ends December 31)

6 Comments

Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) has offered Gold & Platinum status challenges for the past few years (status matched previously) and has for the first time launched a dedicated webpage explaining the process and rules

SPG Gold & Platinum Status Match 2017

Now that the hotel company is part of Marriott it is a good time to take advantage of this challenge for the last time. You can request the “Gold Challenge” or “Platinum Challenge” (never hurts to try registering for both) that require 9 or 18 paid nights during a 90-day window. This challenge doesn’t require you to have any status with other hotel chains.
