As the year draws to a close, the loyalty programs are beginning to roll out their promotions for the first few months of 2016. First cab of the rank appears to be SPG with its Tale Two promotion, that is valid for stays between 11 January and 30 April, 2016.
The promotion consists of two components –
- You can earn double Starpoints for stays of two nights or longer at all properties
- You can earn an additional 250 Starpoints per night at selected properties.
The downside of this is that there are no 250 Points per night properties in Australia, and the double points promotion is not really of benefit to anyone that tends to stay for single nights at a property.
As is normal for an SPG promotion, registration is required. Bonus points earned through the promotion should post within 2-4 weeks following the qualifying stay.
