Starwood's Summer Promotion: Double or Triple Points
Starwood's current promotion -- 2,500 bonus points after every five nights -- is set to end on April 30.
The follow-on promotion, which starts the next day, is more accessible (no five-night minimum) but not much more generous.
Between May 1 and July 31, Starwood Preferred Guest members can earn double points for stays at participating hotels, and triple points for stays that include a Sunday night (or a Saturday night for stays in the Middle East).
Around 140 hotels are not participating, the great majority of them in the U.S.
Registration is required, by June 30.
Deal or No Deal
Double points probably aren't enough of a bonus to spur non-Starwood partisans to switch, although triple points could be a game-changer for some.
Be sure to check the list of non-participating properties (link above) before booking.
