Double Starpoints for 1st Anniversary Promotion at 28 Starwood Hotels

There are 28 hotels in North America celebrating their 1st anniversary as Starwood Hotel members and Starwood Preferred Guest is giving double Starpoints to celebrate.

Registration is required for this Double Starpoints 1st Anniversary promotion.

Valid for stays booked and completed between July 10 and October 31, 2008.

Only base points are doubled and not bonus or elite points. 

 

By the numbers:  Regular earning for Starwood Preferred Guest members is 2 Starpoints per $1 in hotel spending. 

Assume $100 room rate for one-night stay

Preferred Guest = 400 Starpoints earned

Gold Preferred = 500 Starpoints earned

Platinum Preferred = 1,000 Starpoints earned (assumes 500 points platinum amenity)

$100 room rate earns 200 base Starpoints.  Double Starpoints will be 4 Starpoints per $1 or 400 Starpoints on a $100 room rate. 

For elites: Gold member would earn a 50% bonus on 200 Starpoints for base spending = 300 Starpoints + 200 Starpoints (double promo) = 500 Starpoints on a $100 room rate.

Platinum member selecting 500 Starpoints amenity can earn 1,000 Starpoints on a $100 room rate.]
