Every year, SPG publishes a year end summary called “A Year To Remember” with some of the most interesting statistics of the Starwood Preferred Guest program. The most noteworthy of the bunch in 2014:Yes, one member earned over 21 million Starpoints in 2014. So the question quickly becomes, “how did they do that?” Some possibilities:
- Incredible spending on the SPG Amex business and/or personal card
- Booking a number of large meetings and events at expensive Starwood properties
- Booking incredibly expensive suites, keeping in mind the 3 room per night limit for earning points.
This is a fun year-end wrap up, but I am still super curious as to how anyone can earn more than 21 million Starpoints in a year. Anyone else have any good theories on how to rack up points balance like this?
