We have long noted the often excellent value that you can obtain from dining at Starwood hotels’ restaurants as a Starwood Preferred Guest member (free to join, here). Not only will you get a discount of up to 30%, you also earn SPG Starpoints even when you are not a guest at the hotel.
Interestingly, this good deal just got even better, via SPG’s new “Spice It Up” promotion. If you spend US$10 (or local currency equivalent) or more at any of the wide range of over 1400 participating restaurants from 1 May to 31 July 2015, you will earn double SPG Starpoints on your spend (so a bonus 2 SPG Starpoints per $1).
In addition, you will get a further bonus of 250 SPG Starpoints every time you spend $200 or more.
To benefit from this offer, you need to register here by 15 July 2015.
The one slight drawback to this promotion, is you will only earn the bonus points if you are not a guest at the hotel where the restaurant is based. As such, if you have a good quality local Starwood restaurant (I do), this is a great opportunity for a discounted meal out, and some bonus SPG Starpoints.
