SPG has a Hear the Music promotion running April 5 to May 5, 2013 when members earn a $50 TicketMaster credit for every 3 nights at Starwood hotels worldwide. Nights do not need to be consecutive and there is no Ticketmaster earning limit for eligible stays.
Earn a $10 TicketMaster credit by linking your SPG account to FourSquare and checking in at a Starwood Hotel on FourSquare during an eligible stay.
Hotel stays must be completed May 5, 2013 to be eligible for these credits. TicketMaster cash codes expire December 31, 2013. Codes will be emailed within days of hotel stays posting.
There is also an SPG instagram photo contest April 11-May 2 to win an all-paid trip to a concert event you select from nine events around the world.
These promotional offers are only available to residents of the U.S.
Three one-night stays at different hotels = $80 in ticket credit from TicketMaster. That is a decent offer at no additional cost to the SPG member.
The next SPG DoubleTake promotion launches May 1, 2013 for double points (2 bonus points/$1) on stays through July 31, 2013. Earn 500 bonus points for mobile app booking per eligible stay.
