Starwood has announced their Q2 2014 Promotion: “SPG Earn Away”.
Just register using the link below then you can earn 2x or 3x points (with a Sunday stay, or Saturday if you're in the Middle East). Often they offer only 2x points so its nice to see a 3x point bonus, however, if you're traveling for business, you'll likely be going home for the weekend. Make sure you register before a stay because otherwise you'll miss out on the bonus points. Be sure to check the excluded properties here as there are lots that are not participating. I always stay at SPG hotels whenever possible to hold my status and earn more points but I know that doesnt apply to everyone — this may not be enough to sway you from staying at whatever your preferred chain is (where you may be working towards status).
Register here: www.spg.com/earnaway (register by June 30, 2014)
Promotion Period: May 1, 2014, and July 31, 2014 (well, its more like Q2/Q3 but I'm calling it Q2)
Bonus: Double (2x) points or triple points if you include a Sunday night (Saturday if you're staying in the middle east)
Track your progress: Starting May 1st, click here www.spg.com/earnawaytracker to see how much you earned (the link doesnt work yet)
