Registration is available now for SPG’s promotion for the first quarter of this year, „Power Up“.
This promotion runs from January 15 until April 15, 2013 and includes all hotels and resorts that participate in the SPG program. Registration is necessary until February 28, 2013. For every four eligible nights one earns 2,000 bonus Starpoints up to a mazimum of 8,000 bonus Starpoints after 16 nights.
If one completes even 20 nights during the promotion period he earns an additional 10,000 bonus points for a total of 18,000 bonus points.
Many say, that 500 points per night is not much, but I think it’s definitely better than nothing. Maybe it’s a bit sad, that one needs four nights for each bonus, so three nights earn no bonus at all.
I feel lucky because I already had decided to book four nights at Starwood properties for my upcoming trip to the States in March. These four nights will then earn me a bonus of 2,000 points. That’s more than the little more than 1,300 points I’ll earn as a gold member for the stays (without counting welcome amenity and/or green choice points). So for me this promotion is not bad.
