Free Starwood Preferred Guest Gold Status / Delta promotion

Another targeted promotion, but it doesn’t hurt to try and see if you fit the target bill.  I think one of the requirements is that you have never been enrolled in the Starwood Preferred Guest program before.  You also have to choose Delta as your preferred choice of mileage earning (instead of SPG points).  The American Express Platinum card already comes with Starwood Preferred Guest Gold Status, so if you got in on that deal, make sure you contact SPG and get that all set up.  Usually it takes 25 nights (or 10 stays) in a calendar year to normally qualify for SPG Gold status.

The main benefits of SPG Gold Status gets you:

  • 50% bonus on earned points over standard members
  • room upgrades (not suites, but higher/newly renovated/corner/better view with availability)
  • 4pm late checkout when available
  • a special customer service line
  • expedited check-in counter

In this promotion, you can also get a welcome gift with a choice of either:

  1. a $25 SPG Award Certificate
  2. a one-year subscription to the magazine of your choice

From the promotion sign-up website:

In addition to the miles earned for each stay, you can also earn 3,000 bonus miles for every three eligible nights — up to 9,000 bonus miles — from May 1 through August 31, 2011.

If you didn’t know already, the Starwood group of hotels are:

  • Westin
  • W Hotels
  • Sheraton
  • Four Points by Sheraton
  • element
  • St. Regis
  • aloft
  • Le Meridien
  • The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts

Again, a great deal if you can successfully sign up.  Definitely worth a try.
