Encore: Earn Up to Triple Starpoints — Better By The Night
Registration is not officially open yet for the new Better By The Night promotion by Starwood Preferred Guest — but you can request a text message for Starwood Preferred Guest to “ping” you when registration begins sometime during the middle of September, from which you will have through November 30, 2012 to register for this promotion.
Similar to the promotion from earlier this year, you could earn bonus Starpoints on all eligible charges with no limit for every stay at participating Starwood Preferred Guest properties around the world between October 1 through December 20, 2012 — and any room reservations within the promotion period booked before registration will count towards earning the bonus Starpoints.
One main improvement is that you may earn double Starpoints on eligible stays of one or two nights in duration — last year you could only earn double Starpoints on eligible stays of two nights in duration — or triple Starpoints on eliglble stays of three nights in duration or longer.
Another improvement from the promotion from last year is that registered members of the Starwood Preferred Guest frequent guest loyalty program may also earn bonus Starpoints at all 1,100 hotels and resorts which participate in the Starwood Preferred Guest frequent guest loyalty program, as follows:
- 250 Starpoints for eligible stays booked at the official Internet web site of Starwood Preferred Guest
- 500 Starpoints for eligible stays booked through the dedicated Starwood Preferred Guest application software program for the Apple iPhone
Terms and conditions apply, and there are — by my quick count — 124 Starwood Preferred Guest properties in 29 countries which are not participating in this promotion
While FlyerTalk members still have mixed reactions to this promotion as with the similar promotion earlier this year, the reaction this time around has been more positive and favorable.
