The discount ranges from 25 to 50% off the regular amount of miles required. As you can see just by the discount this can be a very good offer if you get 50% off for Business Class! Some highlights are 50% off business class on KLM's new Edmonton route, between Europe and Chengdu and Ho Chi Minh as well lots of 50% off economy/premium economy/business class offers to South and Central America

Hilton HHonors has revealed the details of the requirements to get their new lifetime Diamond Elite status:
"Lifetime Diamond Status will be awarded to select HHonors members, who as of December 31st, 2014 have earned Diamond Status for at least 10 years (non-consecutive) and who have completed stays totaling at least 1,000 paid nights pursuant to the standard HHonors Terms & Conditions."

Hyatt Gold Passport has announced new benefits for their Diamond Elite status members. The first is called Guest of Honor and allows you 'pass along' your benefits when you redeem your points for a free night for your friends and family. They’ll receive the exclusive in-hotel perks of your Diamond membership such as The best room available upon arrival, (excluding suites) A special welcome amenity, Exclusive access to the Regency Club® or Grand Club® lounge, Daily complimentary breakfast, An upgrade to premium Wi-Fi where available and 4 p.m. late checkout. The second are two complimentary one-time-use United Club passes annually (primarily good for those doing lots of U.S. travel) starting on March 1st and the third is complimentary premium Internet access which kicked in on February 14 which is also available to Platinum members.

Starwood Preferred Guest and Uber have teamed up. Simply link your accounts at spg.com/uber and when you complete at least one SPG qualifying Starwood stay you'll earn Starpoints for using Uber.


Starwood Preferred Guest has released their annual hotel award night category changes. Per the SPG representative on FlyerTalk:

"Just over 22% of hotels are changing category; of these, 10.49% are moving up and 11.78% are moving down including some favorites such as The St. Regis Rome, The Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas, Maui, W Paris – Opera, and others."
These changes take effect on March 10th so we reiterate the old addage that you should try to book award nights (if you have planned any) for hotels going up before the 10th while those that are going down you should wait if possible to book after that date. I am very happy to see one of my favourites, the Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas go down! You can view the entire list of hotel changes here.
