The best SPG Promotion in history. Starwood lets you choose from 12 different rewards!

Starwood’s SPG program has officially kicked off its biggest Q4 promotional offers ever – SPG You Choose.  Originally scheduled for announcement tomorrow, the SPG folks decided to surprise everyone with an early release.  The annual SPG Q4 promotion is open to any SPG member who registers online between now and November 15 for stays from October 1 to December 31, 2008.

So what makes this SPG promotion such a big deal?  For the first time, members have the generous privilege of choosing from a dozen reward options (that’s right, 12 different rewards).  

In previous years, this freedom to choose a promotion didn’t exist.  Most SPG members received only one targeted offer, although some lucky members did get to select from only a small handle of options.  Getting to cherry pick from 12 offers is absolutely unprecedented, making this the best SPG promotion ever.

It doesn’t matter if you are a base member, a Gold, or even a Platinum Preferred Guest.  Everyone gets to choose from the same 12 offers.  The options include bonus Starpoints, free weekend nights, double stay credit, and gift cards from Amazon.com.  The most frequent travelers may want to select 25,000 bonus Starpoints after either 10 stays or 20 nights.  Those shooting for Platinum status for 2009 may want to choose the double stay credit offer.  It all depends on your earning objectives.

Once you confirm your selection, there’s no going back.  So think carefully!  You’ll notice there are some tools built into the promotion’s webpage to help guide you in your decision.  With 12 choices though, it could be somewhat difficult to reach a final decision.  Now isn’t that a what wonderful problem to have?

Please note: This promotion IS combinable with other SPG promotions that have overlapping earning periods.

Go ahead and register whenever you’re ready, but make sure you carefully read the terms & conditions of the offer you select!  This is not an offer you want to mess up on.

  2. Thanks for including Loyalty Traveler on your “Other Travel Geeks” list. I like your site. Getting all the *wood info in one place is great and adds content to the hotel loyalty blogs.

    Since you have obviously have seen my site I thought I would direct readers to my post on this SPG Q4 promotion offer not to mess up on. I have some additional analysis that might assist SPG members.

  3. I’m trying to find a good analysis of these options. Does anyone out there really break it down?

    I’m a Platinum member, and I expect to stay 3 nights / week from now until the end of the year. Which promotion should I sign up for?
