SPG adds 1,000 NW or DL bonus miles per stay to Free Nights

This promotion for 1,000 Northwest or Delta miles is combinable with the Stay Two, Earn Free Weekend Night promotion through July 31.

You must choose between earning Delta or Northwest miles. I had 7,000 miles in NW and 4,000 in my DL account from another SPG promotion in 2007. I went with NW since I anticipate 18 to 20 stays during the free night promotional period. I might even earn a frequent flier award through Starwood activity.

You need to check hotel properties to make sure your hotel stay qualifies. The hotels are limited to the Americas and mostly the USA. Most of the hotels in the San Francisco Bay Area are participating. I did not see two Palo Alto hotels on the list so there are some exclusions.

Registration is required for miles and this link will simultaneously register you for the free weekend night promotion:

This incredible Starwood promotion just keeps getting better.

I have completed four hotel stays so far and I have earned over 7,000 points (2 BRG claims for 4,000), two free nights, and now I will also receive 4,000 airline miles. I have received a platinum upgrade on all four stays with Starwood. I was upgraded to junior suites at the Westin St. Francis and Palace Hotel in San Francisco. We received suites at Four Points SFO and Westin Market Street San Francisco.

We are stuck in staycation mode for the next few months while Kelley has chemo and radiation treatment. Starwood is making the weekend getaways to San Francisco a better experience to remember.

  1. So even if you have already completed 4 stays before you register for the bonus miles, they’ll award you miles for those stays? I’m already registered for Free Nights. (and I’ve just completed 4 stays also!)

  2. I read the promotion terms as offering 1,000 miles for any eligible stay from May 1 through July 31 as long as you sign up by July 31.

    The miles are scheduled to post in August after the promotion is over.

  3. Keep in mind that you can combine your DL/NW mileage accounts into one, so that makes the decision about which program to credit to a bit easier.
