I’ve been a long-time SPG Platinum member, usually qualifying on nights, so it was no surprise to me when I qualified last year as a SPG 50 Platinum member, as I’m on a goal for lifetime Platinum status. Sure the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express helps by giving me 2 stays and 5 night credits per year, but the rest is all earned the hard way.
Anyways, a few days ago I received a package from Starwood, which turned out to be a box of chocolate thanking me for my loyalty for last year.
Inside the box was 12 truffles, with a description of each one.
Sorry for the missing the truffle, which I ate, before deciding to take a picture to blog about the SPG Platinum gift. I talked to some other SPG Platinum members, even some with Ambassadors who did not receive any gift like this, so I consider myself fortunate that Starwood decided to send me this small token of their appreciation for my loyalty.
I’m very pleased with the gift, and can’t wait to eat the rest of the truffles, but I ask you, did anyone else receive a gift from Starwood for their loyalty last year, and if so what status did you earn?
According to this Flyertalk thread, it does appear that some others also received the same gift.
