As the year comes to an end, it is important to remember that you will only earn Starpoints on Uber if you have had a qualifying stay in the calendar year. If like me, you use Uber on a daily basis, it is best to get your stay in as early as possible in January 2016. You should definitely take advantage of the SPG® Take Two promotion which gives you double Starpoints® when you stay two nights or more (plus 250 bonus Starpoints for every night you stay at hotels in popular destinations, worldwide from 11 January 2016 to 30 April 2016.
Two qualifying nights at every participating Starwood hotel around the world will earn you double Starpoints but the following hotels in Singapore will give you a bonus of 250 extra Starpoints per night:
- Sheraton Towers Singapore
- The St. Regis Singapore
- The Westin Singapore
- W Singapore - Sentosa Cove
Considering how affordable the Sheraton Towers Singapore is on weekends, it may not be a bad idea for a mattress run to chalk up on points (especially if you need them!).
While I was hotel shopping this afternoon, I realised that Mastercard cardholders in Mainland China, the Philippines and Singapore who add a valid Mastercard card in the Participant’s name on the Shangri-La Mobile App between 24 August 2018 and 28 February 2019 can benefit from 100 bonus Golden Circle points.
As I have recently pointed out, the number of required IHG Rewards Club points for a reward night at the InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay have fallen from 60,000 to 50,000. In addition to that, there is a new addition to the list of properties here in Singapore - the Holiday Inn Express Singapore Serangoon.
When the InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay first opened in Singapore back in 2017, it required 60,000 IHG Rewards Points per reward night. The hotel is the country's second InterContinental-branded property and it features luxurious rooms and suites (albeit small) in the heart of Robertson Quay. While shopping for hotel rooms recently, I noticed that the InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay only requires 50,000 IHG Rewards Points now for a free night - this puts it on par with the InterContinental Singapore in Bugis which I personally prefer.
Chope’s annual Diner’s Choice awards is coming back this year and in celebration of this momentous event, they are giving one an extra 100 Chope-Dollars for all reservations booked and consumed between now and 07 October 2018 so long you use the promo code below. As I have only just recently shared, a brand new loyalty program will also be rolling out in a couple of months so there are definitely things to look forward to.
Golden Circle members are now able to earn double award points whenever they stay, dine or enjoy spa treatments at any Shangri-La hotel, resort, Kerry hotel, Traders hotel and Hotel Jen before 18 January 2019. In celebration of Golden Circle’s 8th anniversary, members will be able to enjoy double the amount of Golden Circle award points (which is equivalent to at least 20% cashback when used for dining).
After making a booking for an upcoming trip, I noticed that there was an option to register for a brand new MegaBonus offer that is valid for stays between 26 September 2018 and 31 January 2019 at all participating Marriott Rewards, SPG and Ritz-Carlton properties. The new MegaBonus offer allows you to earn 2,000 bonus points on all stays (minimum two nights) and 1,000 bonus points per brand, starting with your second brand.
Le Club AccorHotels members will be able to earn up to 6,000 bonus Rewards Points (worth €120) when they stay at any one of the participating hotels between 18 September 2018 and 14 January 2019 - booking has to be made by 07 October 2018.
I have always been an advocate for Chope since it allows you to not only make reservations on-the-go but also rack up plenty of Chope-Dollars which you can then use for dining vouchers or even KrisFlyer miles. There are no fees involved in using Chope so there is really zero reason for you not to - especially the last thing you want to experience is being turned away at a restaurant that you have already travelled down for.
IHG Rewards Club is back with a Double Points Plus More promotion for all eligible members with stays between 16 September 2018 to 16 December 2018. Similar to previous Accelerate promotions, members are required to complete a certain set of tasks (that are supposedly tailored to you based on your stay history) to unlock bonus points.
Planning stays over the next couple of months? World of Hyatt members will be able to earn up to 60,000 (on top of your base and elite) bonus points for eligible nights consumed between 01 September 2018 and 30 November 2018 - registration is necessary and must be completed by 15 October 2018.
