This morning I received an unexpected gift from Starwood Preferred Guest at my door step. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to see what was in side. I am a pretty steady Starwood loyalist. I have the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and am SPG Lifetime Platinum.

Last year, I received a gift as well, Thanks Starwood for the Surprise SPG Platinum Gift!

Holiday Gift From Starwood...What's Inside?

The note says, “Thank You!”

And to enjoy this exclusive gift to keep your most important things together when you travel.

And it is a Dopp kit style pouch…

Since I travel so much, I already have many Dopp kits and have acquired my fair share of Airline amenity kits. So, needless to say while I appreciate the gesture; I don’t really need this. The kit is empty, how about some free points next time Starwood? I think I might like that better! But, thanks for thinking of me.

Did you receive this years gift from Starwood? Did you get the same thing or something different?
What did you think of it?

Want to rack up Starpoints like me?

Consider these offers to earn more Starpoints, the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express. If you are short on elite status, consider the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from Amex which gives 5 elite qualifying nights, and 2 stay credits just for having the card. The Platinum Card from American Express offers complimentary annual SPG Gold status just for having the card, so that is something else to consider.

  2. I received one, too. It looks like it’s for Starwood AmEx cardholders, not based on Starwood status.
