World MasterCard is a specific type, explained here:

For SPG, it looks like they consider Australia as part of the Asia Pacific region.

bergcy Mar 13, 12 4:15 pm

Do you think a reward stay (free night) would count?

amolkold Mar 13, 12 4:15 pm

I have a few stays in Asia where I can do this, unfortunately, don't have a World Mastercard.

Heard the Chase Sapphire Preferred can be done as a World Mastercard rather than a Visa Signature, but I think it'd be a new card ...

Edit: Have a Barclay's US Air MC, but don't think that's World. It's in my drawer back home so can't refer to it at the moment.

There is nothing in the T&C that excludes this, so I think free night should work. Once someone has tried, please report back!

If you got the higher category US Airways card, it is a World Master card.

Mod: I don't think this offer is exactly a targetted offer as you edited eventhough it says:

"The Promotion is valid only for eligible World MasterCard cardholders who are enrolled as Starwood Preferred Guest® members (“SPG Members”) at the Preferred Guest® Tier (“Qualified SPG Members”).
If not already an SPG member, World MasterCard cardholders may enroll online at www.spg.com/WorldMasterCardGoldUpgrade or call the nearest Customer Contact center and enroll with enrollment code WMQ."

With the code WMQ, it sounds like as long as you use to code to enrol and have a World Master card and an SPG member you should be ok. I just enrolled without being targetted, and the system successfully registered me.

Perhaps if you want to err on the site of caution, the tile could be edited to : ``Maybe targeddted``

Asia Pacific Region is not the same as "in Asia", what you had originally put it.

That's the point I tried to raise and had MOD edit the thread title to avoid the geographic confusion.

In such case, it's targeted. The prerequisite is World MasterCard cardholders.

i dunno..looking at the mastercard page..looks like the title of the US Air card is World mastercard

JapanFlyerT Mar 13, 12 7:14 pm

No Ink Bold?
 
I went to the SPG page and saw the offer after my auto login, so it is probably not really targeted.

Was planning on making this my next card, and it says MasterCard BusinessCard it the T&C, but as it is not a credit card I guess it is out.

Hmm. I have a bunch of Visa now, but no Mastercards. Which Mastercard has the best offer?

Not mine. Just got home, mine is the Platinum card. Weird, because I got the higher sign-up bonus associated with the World.
