Yesterday SPG sent reminders to members to remember to enroll in the SPG More For You promotion. Via the More For You promotion you can earn double points on all stays of two nights or more and triple points if that stay includes a weekend night. In order to participate in this promotion you must register by November 30th, 2014 and the promotion is valid until December 15th, 2014.
But even if you have no intentions of staying at an Starwood property during this time you should still enroll for this promotion. In addition to double/triple points, SPG will also give you 500 Starpoints simply for enrolling and updating your stay preferences! A conservative valuation would at least value Starpoints at 2 cents each which would make this worth about $10 for 2 minutes of your time. That is an excellent use of time if you ask me! Depending on how you redeem your points you can get much higher value per point. For example, in January I will be taking a trip to the Cayman Islands where the The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort & Spa is going for $700/night (prepaid) once you add in taxes or 16,000 Starpoints. Since the 5th night on points is free that gives a value per point of 5.47 cents per point!
You can enroll for the More For You promotion here. Once you have registered for this promotion you simply need to log into your SPG account and click on My Stay Preferences. You can update any preference to qualify for the 500 free points. The points should post to your account within 2-4 weeks from the end of the promotion.
