Via The Points Guy, Starwood is offering several targeted promotions to loyalty members.
Some folks received offers to earn up to 6,000 Starwood points for every 3 paid stays. Others see offers to earn elite status more quickly by getting credit for double the amount of paid nights.
To be eligible for any of the targeted offers, you’ll first need to register by October 15, 2016. Then, have paid stays between August 15, 2016, and November 15, 2016.
I’ll share more details about the current promotions.
