Bonus beginnings earn up to 6000 starpoints

 

There’s a new Starwood Hotels promotion: Bonus Beginnings Earn up to 6,000 Starpoints.

You’ll earn 2,000 Starpoints per stay, up to a maximum of 6,000 Starpoints when you stay at participating Starwood Hotels and resorts from December 1, 2012 – February 28, 2013.

Although the image says the offer is for new members, I received this promotion offer via email and I’ve been a member of Starwood for a few years.  I was able to successfully register.

Will that translate into the bonus points? Possibly.   It always pays to register for every promotion, especially ones that are to you from a hotel/airline loyalty program.

Starwood is good about honoring their promotions.

For example during Starwood’s Better By the Night Promotion (read my Starwood Better by the Night post here), I earned the bonus points for my stay at the Sheraton Gateway LAX, the host hotel for the Frequent Traveler University LAX.

2 Easy steps in Bonus Beginnings Earn Up to 6,000 Starpoints:

  1. Register for the Bonus Beginnings promotion here by January 31, 2013.
  2. Stay at a participating Starwood hotel and resort including W®, Le Méridien®, Westin® and Sheraton® between December 1, 2012 – February 28, 2013.

Summary of the fine print:

  • Registration by January 31, 2013 is required
  • 2,000 bonus Starpoints will be received after each eligible stay
  • Maximum of 6,000 bonus Starpoints
  • Stays must be at SPG-participating properties from December 1, 2012, through February 28, 2013

6,000 bonus points is tempting. I might have to add a Starwood hotel or two to my upcoming hotel stay lineup.  How about you?

I tried to register and it said I was not eligible. I also did not receive my better by the night bonus for FTU stay at the Sheraton. You must lead a charmed life. :)

Hi Laura,

Hmm, that's a bummer. Maybe next time?

I wish that were the case, I'd buy a lotto ticket. :)
