How to Transfer SPG Points To Another Account
One of the best features of the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) program is the ability to transfer points to another individual. This is a rare feature in the points game. The only requirement is that the two SPG accounts transferring points must have the same mailing address. You can do this simply by changing your address in your account settings. If you are changing your address, you must wait 30 days in order to transfer points.
Even when you are finally able to transfer the points, it will still take an additional 3-5 days for the transfer to be completed. Similar to transfers from Starpoints to airline miles, the transfer does not happen immediately. The process isn’t quick but the ability to transfer Starpoints is worth it.
Thrifty Tip: Utilize this method to split hotel rooms with friends and family. You are only required to have the same mailing address.
Step 1: Ensure both SPG accounts have the same address on file
To change your address, log into your SPG account and go Manage my Account and then My Profile. You must wait 30 days after changing your address to be able to transfer points.
Step 2: Go to Starpoints & Awards and then Redeem Starpoints
Step 3: Select My Options
Step 4: Select Give Starpoints and click Transfer Starpoints
Step 5: Enter the SPG number of Starpoints Recipient
