SPG Summer 2008 Promotion Offer

Starwood Preferred Guest has released their Summer 2008 promotional offer for eligible Starwood hotel stays.

Starwood Preferred Guest has their summer promotion online as of this week. Registration for the quarterly promo must be completed by July 15, 2008.

The SPG Summer 2008 promotion offer is for stays between June 1 and August 31, 2008.

The promotion offer is targeted by whatever criteria SPG uses based on your stay pattern and preferences. There appear to be at least 7 variations of this summer travel promotion based on more than 60 posts on FlyerTalk this past week.

The common factor of all the promotion variations is an automatic registration for a quadruple bonus points, 8 points per $1 for Aloft hotel stays between hotel opening date and Dec 31, 2008.

7 variations of the SPG Summer promotion have been reported on FlyerTalk. Only two of the promotion offers involve a fast-track elite status option and this option must be selected at the time of registration.

  1. In the postcard I received for this promotion from SPG a couple of weeks later the wording had changed to read “Up to 3,500 bonus Starpoints – 500 per eligible stay for the first four stays and 1,500 after your fifth stay”

  2. You’re so cool! I don’t suppose I’ve read anything like this before. So nice to find somebody with some original thoughts on this subject.

    This website is something that is needed on the web 🙂 Useful job for bringing something new to the internet!

    Best regards Alex
