Free bonus points are in bloom for members of the Starwood Preferred Guest program this spring. The hotel chain is making spring travel even sweeter for its loyal customers by offering an exciting bonus deal. Members are eligible to earn 5,000 extra Starpoints between March and May of 2017. The exciting thing about the company's current promotion is that you don't have to book a lot of hotel stays to scoop up points. You can actually earn an impressive amount of bonus points simply by making everyday purchases using your credit card.
It's important to jump on this deal as soon as possible because access to bonus points is only available during a very limited window of time. Is this spring a good time to shop your way to free Starpoints that can be used during the upcoming summer travel season? Take a couple of minutes to see just how easy it is to bag some Starpoints in your pocket by following a few simple steps.
How To Earn The 5,000 Starpoints?
Starwood Preferred Guest members can earn 5,000 Starpoints after making $5,000 in qualifying purchases using Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express, a GET.com advertiser.
However, simply being a member and owning the Card won't be enough to qualify for the promotion. It's actually necessary that you enroll in the promotion before March 31 if you wish to participate.
Enrolling as soon as possible will work to your advantage because your period for accumulating points lasts from the time you sign up for the promotion until May 31.
The good news is that Starwood has created a very simple portal for enrolling in the promotion. You can complete your registration using either your American Express customer account or your Card information.
A Card That Works For Travelers
The latest promotion from Starwood may be that final straw that makes you give in and sign up for Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express if you don't already have the American Express credit card yet.
It should be noted that the current promotion is just one of many ways you can earn thousands of bonus points annually when making everyday purchases and booking stays at your favorite Starwood properties around the world.
The Card also comes with a long list of perks that can make traveling and staying at Starwood properties so much more enjoyable. Some of the perks you can look forward to as a Cardholder include:
- Redeemable nights
- Wi-Fi benefits
- Waivers for foreign transaction fees
- Purchase protection
- Return protection
- Elite status shortcuts
- Enhanced customer service
Some Details To Consider While Participating In Starwood's Spring Promotion
You'll want to keep an eye on your account balance as the promotion goes on to make sure your purchases qualify for points. Things like fees, balance transfers, cash advances, prepaid cards and interest charges will not count toward your goal of $5,000. Nonetheless, you'll be happy to know that any purchases made by additional Cardholders on your account will not count for this particular promotion, too.
