Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Platinum 50 members – NEW reward choices from March 9th 2015

Posted on February 27, 2015 by in Starwood Hotels

What's the scoop?

Earlier this year, SPG revealed that Platinum members with 50 eligible nights would be able to choose their rewards benefit in the near future rather than redeeming for Suite Night Awards.

This week, Starwood spoke to Gary from View from the Wing and revealed what those rewards choices will be from March 9th 2015.

New reward choices for Platinum 50 members

You will still be able to redeem for 10 Suite Night Awards, but can instead opt to choose one of the following:

– 4 free Uber rides worth up to $25 each

– Gold status gift for a friend or family member

– TSA Precheck fee

– $100 Amazon gift card

– $100 UNICEF donation

What else do I need to know?

All the alternatives to the Suite Nights only have the face value of $85 – $100 each, so it's unlikely that the changes will make anyone jump for joy.

Will you be sticking with Suite Nights or do you prefer any of the new rewards?
