A free night after three Starwood stays?
Sounds good. But you’ll have to travel pretty far afield to earn the bonus, as well as to use it.
Between November 1, 2010, and January 31, 2011, Starwood Preferred Guest members can earn a free weekend night after completing three stays at around 250 participating properties in Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa charged to a MasterCard.
The free night may be redeemed on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night from December 2, 2010, through February 27, 2011, at Category 1-6 hotels in the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East, or Africa.
Only one free night per member may be earned with the promotion. Registration is required.
Deal or No Deal
The verdict: Most North America-based travelers will be better served by Starwood’s double/triple-points offer, which is in effect through December 15 (but registration must be completed by October 31).
