SPG enthusiasts know that their quarterly (trimester-ly?) promos are a great way to rack up points, and SPG just announced the first one of 2018.
Starwood released the details of their latest promotion for the first few months of 2018. More details below:
- Between January 16 through April 15, earn double points on eligible stays starting your second stay
- Earn an extra 500 points if stays include at least one weekend night
- Register here by March 31, 2018

Base SPG members will earn an additional 4 points per dollar spent (2 bonus points on top of the standard 2 points earned). Additional points earned through bonuses are not doubled, so SPG points from the American Express credit card, gold or platinum status, or the 500 point bonus will receive additional points.
While SPG has certainly had more lucrative offers in the past, this isn’t a terrible one. It’s a little odd that the bonus starts after your second stay, but it could be much worse I suppose. I’ll be signing up for this, of course, and you should too, even if you’re not sure you’ve got an SPG stay on the horizon.
