It’s Easy to Search for a Nearby Participating Restaurant or Bar Through the SPG Cravings Site

And if you aren’t already a member of Starwood Preferred Guest, you can click here to register.  It’s free and only takes ~2 minutes of your time!

How Does the Discount Work?

The discount is only valid for food purchases, NOT breakfast or drinks.  And you have to request for the discount with your server.  

So actually taking advantage of this deal might be a bit of a hassle, because it’s likely you’ll have to explain it to your server.  I wouldn’t recommend testing this out on a first date. 😉

You’ll also need to show your SPG membership card or have your member number ready.  The discount is good for groups of up to 8 people.

And don’t forget, because of the recent Marriott-Starwood merger, any Starwood points you earn are now transferrable to Marriott points!

Earn Bonus Points With a Starwood Account or AMEX Starwood Cards!

Folks on FlyerTalk report you’ll also earn bonus Starwood points when you dine at a Starwood hotel restaurant or bar.  Even if you’re not staying there!

Both the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express earn 2 Starwood points per $1 spent at Starwood hotels.

And, you earn 2 Starwood points per $1 spent at Starwood hotels just for joining the loyalty program.  Make that 3 Starwood points per $1 spent if you have Gold or Platinum elite status!

You can stack the SPG Cravings discount with the bonus points you’ll earn to earn up to 5X Starwood points.  The bonus should post to your Starwood account automatically.  But save your receipts just in case, because some folks reported follow-up was required to get all the points they were entitled to.

If you have either AMEX Starwood card, or a Starwood loyalty account, be sure to get extra points on top of your discount!

Bottom Line

With SPG Cravings, members of Starwood’s loyalty program can save up to 30% at over 1,500 Starwood hotel restaurants and bars around the world.

The discount is only valid for food purchases.  And you’ll have to provide your Starwood membership number and request the discount with your server.

Plus, if you aren’t already a member of Starwood Preferred Guest, it’s easy (and free!) to sign-up.  Because you’ll get bonus points credited to your Starwood account, in addition to your savings.

And even more bonus points if you pay with a Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express or Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express.
