“An Amazing Bonus Offer Coming Your Way” – SPG

Earlier today I received an exciting email from Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG).  The subject was “Amazing Bonus Offer Coming Your Way”.  Let me just remind everyone that I’m a 50-night a year Platinum Member.  Almost all of my annual hotel stays are with SPG Properties.

When the economy was in the toilet (and I was splitting my hotel stays across Marriott, Hilton and Starwood), I was often getting these sweet double or triple points per stay or thousands of points bonus after a stay or two.  Now that the economy is humming and I’m at the top tier status with SPG I’m not getting any lucrative bonuses – why should I?  I stay with them, I don’t have much incremental business that I can push their way.

Back to the email that got me all excited today.  I clicked the link, entered my SPG number and found that my special bonus was 3,000 bonus points after three stays…then 3,000 more points after six stays…and 3,000 more points after 9 stays.

So if I have nine separate stays (between May 1, 2015 and July 31, 2015), I’ll get 9,000 bonus points.  Not at all a lucrative bonus and definitely not something that will make me do a mattress run.

What was your special bonus offer?  Feel free to leave your bonus offer in the comments and we can see how everyone is doing on this promo.

    Mine was a little different. I get 5,000 points after 5 stays, up to 15,000 points.
