Starwood Preferred Guest is one of our favourite loyalty programs, with a huge range of airline transfer partners.

This guide is an overview of as many SPG current offers we can find, with bonus points, discounts, free nights and more.

Double or triple Starpoints on stays of two nights or more – deal →

Stay two or more nights at participating SPG hotels and resorts (the list is quite long) between 27 May and 4 September 2017 and you’ll earn double points on weekdays and triple points on weekends.

Fast track to Gold and Platinum status – deal →

How to use SPG Dashboard to find and keep track of the big bonus Starpoint earning offers

SPG Dashboard Gold

Starwood Preferred Guest launched an offer ‘dashboard’ in your SPG account in 2016, which is a great addition to your armoury in keeping track of points-earning offers and your progress in meeting the requirements for them.

You’ll also see some basic info about your SPG status, where you’ve stayed in the past and how many Starwood brands and regions you’ve stayed at globally.

You can see how many Starpoints you’ve earned with their airline partners and Uber, as well. You have registered for Starpoint earning with Uber, right?

SPG Dasbhoard Uber

Here I’m being reminded of a ‘stay at more brands’ offer, while discount rates and other deals also pop up too.

SPG Big Brand Bonus

The downside – not all promotions show up here. Regardless, it’s a handy way to keep on top of the different deals out there.
