I read on Points, Miles and Martinis this morning of a way to earn 200 Starwood points by opting in to email subscriptions.  I’ve written about these kinds of deals before

(SEE ALSO: 500 United miles for opting in to emails)

(SEE ALSO: 500 bonus Amtrak points for opting in to emails (targeted?))

It’s not enough that Starwood is giving us 2 shots a day to win 250,000 Starpoints through their Open the Door sweepstakes, now there’s this too!

How to get your 200 free Starwood points

To get your free 200 Starwood points, you first have to double check that you’re not ALREADY opted-in to receive emails.  To do that, check your SPG online account.


It’s that first checkbox that you’ll want to uncheck if it’s already checked, then save your changes.

Log out of your account, and then access the SPG dashboard

You’ll see a place to opt-in for 200 Starpoints


Check those boxes and hit Update Your Account and that’s it!

Terms and conditions state:

An eligible member can earn 200 bonus Starpoints for opting in to the email subscription(s) in the form field on the SPG Dashboard and clicking “Update Your Account.” A member can only earn the bonus once during the offer earn window, which ends Nov-24-2015. A member must subscribe to all of the displayed email subscription(s) using the form field on the SPG Dashboard for the Starpoints to be earned.

Worked for me on both my and my wife’s account – this can also be a great way to keep those points from expiring
