SPG members who use an Android smartphone can now take advantage of the 500 bonus points offer for the SPG Better by the Night promotion. The SPG Android app was released yesterday for the Google Play store and a Starwood representative on FlyerTalk has confirmed that reservations with the new app will be eligible to earn the bonus points.
Hopefully you haven’t made too many reservations under this promotion so far. There is still plenty of time to make a few reservations and grab a few bonus points.
Reviews of the app have been mixed so far. While most agree that the app has great visuals, there have been reports of missing or incorrect stay dates for existing reservations. Starwood representatives have mentioned that logging in and out of the app could possibly remedy this issue.
As someone who uses an Android phone, it’s nice to finally have the app available. It seems most apps these days are available first, or are more polished, for iOS. But that’s another story for another day….
