Starwood Preferred Guest has released details of a promotion – called Explore More – that will run from 12 September, 2017 until 15 January, 2018.

SPG members can earn:

  • 1,000 bonus Starpoints per stay at St. Regis, The Luxury Collection, W, Le Méridien, Westin, Sheraton, Tribute Portfolio and Design Hotels
  • 500 bonus Starpoints per stay at Aloft, Element and Four Points
  • 10,000 bonus Starpoints when you stay 25 or more nights

Unlike previous SPG promotions, even 1-night stays will be eligible for “Explore More”. Of course, you must pay an eligible rate, which is any paid rate that earns you Starpoints – in essence, anything you can book online at

Pre-registration is required. You can do this by clicking here. SPG members must register by 30 November, 2017 in order to participate. As always, register now, even if you don’t expect to have any stays. You never know when something might come up and you’d have forgotten to register…

This appears to be a potentially lucrative promotion. As regular readers will know, one of my favourite travel hacking techniques is making a Best Rate Guarantee Claim. You can read up on this programme by clicking here.

With up to 1,000 points per stay from Explore More, and 2,000 points for a successful Best Rate Guarantee claim, SPG members can easily earn 3,000 Starpoints for each stay. At InsideFlyer UK’s valuation of 2p per Starpoint, you could be looking at a £60 rebate on a one-night stay!

Excuse me whilst I wander off and figure out how many SPG stays (and BRG claims) I can squeeze into this autumn. 🙂
