Starwood/Amex 15 stay nights

Can someone (or point me in the right direction) please tell me when Starwood and Amex started giving the 15 nights of elite stay credit?

Thank you!

Hi suitestay,

Per the "Benefit Terms" from this link, the 15 Elite Night Credit are offered for Card Accounts opened on or after 1/1/2019. You may check out more information from the link mention earlier.

Starwood never gave them. Marriott started giving them after Starwood stopped existing.

Your card is now a Marriott card, not a Starwood card. Perhaps your physical card has not been updated, but online at the Amex site (and on any statements they send you) it should show that it's now a Marriott Bonvoy card rather than a Starwood card.

Does not matter whether SPG card still exists with that moniker or not, it wont change the fact that the poster would see 15 elite stay night in his account as part of the benefit of owning a former SPG now BonVoy card. How he calls the card is IRRELEVANT for the question asked.

Besides, who really cares what the name is, as long as it is an active card? His card obviously is an active card.

The SPG card gave elite credit long before the merger.

I'm reasonably sure is the comment relates to the 15 nights aspect.

Pre-merger Starwood Amex cards granted two stay credits and five night credits for each type of card held (personal/business.)

right. This is the old 5 nights... I assume now expanded to 15 nights (3 to 1). I hold two cards with them - but only receive(d) 15 nights. Seems like it's capped at 15.

All Bonvoy credit card elite night annual grants are capped at 15 nights per Bonvoy member (without regard to the number of credit cards held.)

SPG points were adjusted at a 3:1 ratio at the time of the merger, not nights. Stays were important on the SPG side (as well as nights.) On the pre-merger Marriott side, only nights were important. The Bonvoy program adopted the pre-merger Marriott approach.
