Stacking promos are an excellent way to accumulate points quickly and cheaply. With the value that SPG’s Starpoints have, this is great and can save you substantial spending on their credit cards. Find out how you can easily get 4,500 bonus Starpoints with a single SPG stay!
How To Get 4,500 Bonus Starpoints With One Stay
The total 4,500 bonus points (actually 4,515 bonus points) is a result of two promos that will stack with each other. Even if you cannot take advantage of the stay at the participating hotels to get both, you can still get either one easily enough.
Blogger ThankYou 2015
This first one is good for any eligible stay (paid rates through SPG’s website or their app). This promo awards 2,015 Starpoints for a single stay between November 30 – December 31. The stay can be at any of the SPG properties.
I think most people would value Starpoints at a value of at least 2 cents per point. That means this promo will give you $40 in value. That is a great deal! It is great not just because of the value but because if you normally earn Starpoints through Amex SPG spend, you can now use that spending on a different card. That is $2,000 in spending that can be put on a different points card.
SPG Amex Keyless Promo
The other promo that is property dependent is the SPG Keyless promo and must be paid for with the SPG Amex card. This promo awards the customer with 2,500 Starpoints and runs for a stay between November 20 – February 29, 2016. This stay can also be a single-night stay and is valid on eligible rates.
The hotels that currently work with the keyless system (meaning you use your smartphone or Apple Watch for entry to your room) are found within the Aloft, Element, and W hotels. The complete list of participating properties can be found here.
Stacking The Offers
If you book your single night stay at one of the participating properties above and stay before December 31, you will earn a total of 4,515 bonus Starpoints. With some of these properties being in places that are off peak and available at cheap rates, you could easily get the full 4,515 points for less than a $100 in spending. That is about $90 in point value plus a hotel stay for under $100!
It is up to you to decide if this is worth finding a cheap hotel just for the points, but I think this is a nice offer that could work if you find a cheap enough hotel. For me, I needed a stay coming up and was planning to stay at a Hilton because of the price but this promo switched me to the SPG property. It is nice to pick up bonus Starpoints and could help sway you to a SPG hotel the same way!
