If any of you have been pondering exploration of the Starwood properties and are looking to rack up some more Marriott and/or SPG points, SPG is offering its members a reduced rate for each second-night stay: your birthday rate. For each night you pay and stay at the regular rate, you will get the second night at the rate corresponding to the year of your birth. So, if you were born in 1980, your rate would be $80 for each second night.
I thought this was a clever idea from SPG that I wanted to share with the group. I also think this would be a great reciprocal promotion for Marriott to offer!
