Starwood points are a perk offered by Starwood Hotels and Resorts. There are two primary ways to obtain Starpoints. The first is to buy them. You can purchase Starpoints to transfer to a friend or or keep for yourself. The second method is to stay at Starwood hotels. You earn two Starpoints for every dollar spent at a Starwood hotel. Points accumulate for money to spend on food and beverages as well as room fees.
Go to a concierge at any Starwood Hotel and ask to apply to be a Starwood Preferred Guest. Complete the application and receive an account number and membership card. Alternatively, apply online (see Resources).
Present the card when you check into a Starwood Hotel. Money you spend for your room and services will accumulate points.
Present your rewards card when you dine in a Starwoods restaurant. All money spent on food and beverage will accumulate points.
