Through June 15th, SPG will give you 250 bonus Starpoints (MilesTalk value of $6.25) each time you use mobile check-in.

During the 6-week time period, any member who checks-in using the SPG mobile app, at over 1,100 hotels across seven brands including St. Regis, The Luxury Collection, Sheraton, Westin, Le Meridien, Tribute Portfolio and Four Points will receive 250 Starpoints, with no cap on possible Starpoints earned. Starpoints will be deposited within a few weeks of the promotion ending.

The mobile check-in feature is available exclusively for members who have downloaded the SPG mobile app and booked their stays directly with SPG on its website or in the app. Members will receive a notification approximately 48 to 72 hours before their stay asking if they would like to check-in using the app. On the day of arrival, a notification will be sent to their mobile device alerting them that their room is ready and their key is waiting for them at the front desk, and when they checkout using the SPG app, their folio will be emailed to them.

If you somehow don’t yet have the SPG app (really?), you can get it here:

The App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id312306003
Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.starwood.spg

Will this get you to use mobile check-in? Let me know here, on Twitter, or in the private MilesTalk Facebook group.
