"Starwood Frequent Guest" Program

Opening screen for Sheraton SCI now shows "Starwood Frequent Guest" and says new program begins 2/3/99.
Same on Westin

I just booked two nights for points at the Sheraton Luxury Hotel Excelsior for 10,000 points each night. I think that hotel used to be 12,000 points. What a pleasant surprise. The agent told me my point total and it matches what I had as SCI.

There were no awards for 12,000 points with Sheraton. The highest award level was Category 4 which requires 10,000 points.

Anyone knowing if we'll still be able to earn miles at Restaurants even without hotel registration?

One thing I do know is this much: I called Sheraton and told them not to not to charge my credit card to renew my membership. They said there is no charge in the new program. You can no longer "buy" an elite membership and as with most programs, you now have to earn it with a required amount of annual stays.

Aren't we do a refund? CATMAN

I guess that I'm pretty lucky then, the hotel I've been staying at was a Hilton and I was Gold VIP and when it was switched over to Sheraton, they paid my fee for my SCI Gold status. I think you DO deserve a refund, Catman.

Catman ~ I would think that Starwood would not be looking to alienate the gold members of SCI, and will probably give you a comparable level of membership for the first year, but that's just a guess!

they do (give a comparable level of membership) - and as I haven't had 10 stays in the past 12 months, I am quite happy with my ongoing Gold-qualification (it is/was worth $25).

On my SCI statement yesterday, it said my gold qualification was good until August, the anniversary date of my gold membership (obtained as a part of through American Express SCI Optima). Therefore, it is likely that you will get the gold level this year as well.
No words yet on the fate of the SCI card.

Me too

I also have the old card, although in a drawer. I do however, still have the old Sheraton Club Intl's luggage tags on my suitcase.

I hope if it gets lost, SCI aka SPG would still call me

Wonder what the old Sheraton Gold cards would fetch on eBay.
