Right now there are three great Starwood Preferred Guest promotions you can stack.

  1. Earn 2,015 Starpoints on any stay this month.
  2. Earn 2,500 Starpoints for using SPG Keyless and paying with an American Express by February 29, 2016.
  3. Earn 2x Starpoints on two night stays plus another 500 bonus Starpoints on three night stays through December 20, 2015.

You need to register for all three promos. Here’s more details and how to register:

1. Blogger? Bonus

For more information on SPG mobile apps and keyless, please visit www.spg.com/keyless.”

Only certain W, Aloft, and Element hotels have SPG Keyless. Here are the participating properties.

3. Stay for More

If your planned stay is going to be 2+ nights, you should also register here for the normal quarterly promotion.

Put It All Together

Once you have registered for the promotions:

  1. Book a stay through the SPG app on your phone
  2. paying with an American Express you’ve registered in the app
  3. at a W, Aloft, or Element hotel that has keyless entry
  4. for a stay before December 31, 2015.

If the stay is 2+ nights and happens before December 20, you also trigger the smaller bonuses from the Stay for More promotion.

Bottom Line

I almost never write about hotel promotions, but getting 4,515 bonus SPG points for a one night stay is too good to pass up when I value those points at $113 and there are certainly properties with SPG Keyless that cost less than that per night.

Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That's $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards®.

Just getting started in the world of points and miles? The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for you to start with.

With a bonus of 60,000 points after $4,000 spend in the first 3 months, 5x points on travel booked through the Chase Travel Portal and 3x points on restaurants, streaming services, and online groceries (excluding Target, Walmart, and wholesale clubs), this card truly cannot be beat for getting started!
