Starwood Preferred Guest just announced a promotion from now until August 31, 2015 where you can get a bonus 1000 Starpoints whenever you have a stay that includes a weekend night (defined as Fri, Sat or Sun except in the middle east where it is Thu, Fri, and Sat). This promotion can be a sweet deal especially if you have a low cost one night weekend stay to boost your points earnings. To maximize it if you didn’t mind moving properties a bit, you could do three different SPG properties on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights and get 3000 extra Starpoints plus you get to see different properties too!
I recently used 10,000 Starpoints a night to score this room in Detroit during the Movement music festival. Paid rates were $379 a night which gave me a value of 3.79 cents per point! This promotion will get you 10% of a free room like this every time you use it which is pretty nice!
Free points are always welcome. We will see what the other chains come up with this quarter to find the best value and let you know our thoughts!
