Starwood is offering a reward for guests returning to their hotels after a long period of inactivity. You can earn 2k-4k bonus points, 25% off an award up to five nights, or a $25 Amazon gift card. Reader Kathy K received this offer after a 3 month hiatus from Starwood properties. Kathy runs a travel blog from a runner’s perspective called WillRunForMiles. It is a cool way to learn about travel from a runner that has run marathons in all 50 states. Back to the SPG promotion, the details are below.

I tried to register but didn’t qualify for this promotion. Probably because I stay at SPG properties too much. Almost reminds me of the Delta status promotions but is not on the same level. I think the SPG rewarding returns promotion is a great incentive for guests to return to the program without devaluing existing member loyalty.
This promotion is awesome and would help me return to SPG quicker than other hotel chains. I would definitely go with the 25% off an award certificate. Make sure to check your eligibility for this return promotion. It could be worth 16,000 points.
