Yesterday morning I wrote about Starwood’s new terms and conditions. Lots of cleanup, new sections and changes related to the introduction of SPG Pro, there were also some rather odd additions like an agreement that any Starwood member won’t challenge the chain’s trademarks and that gifting awards to others when you’re not staying won’t earn stay or night credit towards status for either the gifter or for the guest.
These were terms that were set to go into effect on October 15. And no doubt that will happen, at least in some measure similar to what was posted yesterday.
But this morning the terms and conditions have reverted to the older May 2013 revision.
The changes that had been posted to Starwood’s website are gone. Either a technical glitch, or someone at SPG decided the language as-posted wasn’t quite ready for prime time.
