Promo: Earn Starwood & Marriott Status After Just 18 Nights!

Article By:




Great news for frequent travelers-Starwood just announced a neat shortcut for obtaining elite status! Starwood status can be enormously helpful as it’s part of the largest hotel company in the world ever since Marriott acquired it last year. I actually have Platinum status got upgraded to a beautiful suite in the Dominican Republic last month because of my status. I also love Starwood points as they’re the most valuable reward currency right now and are a great way to book free first class flights.

 

Starwood offers Gold and Platinum status. Gold Status typically requires 10 stays or 25 nights per year while Platinum status typically requires 25 stays or 50 nights per year. Starwood’s new status challenge promo makes it much easier to qualify.



Gold Status Challenge Requirements

  • Must be an SPG Preferred member (Just create an account and you automatically become a member)
  • Can’t have had Gold or Platinum status within the past five years
  • Can’t have previously completed a status challenge
  • Spend 9 nights at Starwood hotels within three months

 

Platinum Challenge Requirements

  • Must be an SPG Preferred or Gold member
  • Can’t have had Platinum status within the past five years
  • Can’t have previously completed a status challenge
  • Spend 18 nights at Starwood hotels within three months

 

Important Details

This status challenge offer is available through December 2017. If you’re ready to sign up for the challenge, give a call to Starwood customer service to register. When you call customer service, you’ll have to choose from a set of eligible three month periods during which your hotel stays will qualify for the challenge. For example, June-August 2017. If you just spent a lot of nights with Starwood, don’t worry. Customer service should let you start your status challenge retroactively up to one month prior to your registration. Once you have your Starwood status, you can link it to Marriott and Marriott will match your Starwood status for free! Congratulations, you now have Platinum status with the largest hotel chain in the world after staying just 18 nights!
