FAQs



SPG TAKE THREE PROMOTION TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Registration: Starwood Preferred Guest® Members must register online between May 15, 2017, through 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET), August 30, 2017 (the "registration period") at spg.com/takethree. Registered members can earn bonus Starpoints® on eligible stays between May 27, 2017, through September 4, 2017 (the "earning period"), at participating hotels and resorts in the SPG® program.

Earning: Registered members will earn double Starpoints at participating hotels and resorts on eligible stays of two or more nights within the earning period. Registered members who earn double Starpoints will earn an additional two (2) Starpoints per eligible US$1 spent (for a total of four [4] Starpoints per dollar). Elite-level extra Starpoints earnings and other bonuses will not be doubled. Only the base two-Starpoints-per-dollar eligible earnings are doubled. Registered members will earn triple Starpoints at participating hotels and resorts on eligible weekend stays of two or more nights within the earning period. Registered members who earn triple Starpoints will earn an additional four (4) Starpoints per eligible US$1 spent (for a total of six [6] Starpoints per dollar). Elite-level extra Starpoints earnings and other bonuses will not be doubled or tripled. Only the base two-Starpoints-per-dollar eligible earnings are doubled or tripled (collectively, the "promotion"). Offer is eligible with other Starpoints promotions; however, each offer will award bonus Starpoints independently of each other, and offers may not be combined.

Bonusing: The bonus Starpoints will post to the registered member's account within two [2] to four [4] weeks after the eligible stay posts.

Eligible stays and nights: An eligible stay is defined as one or more consecutive nights paying an eligible rate in the same hotel or resort, regardless of the number of check-ins or checkouts that occur, and posting to the registered member’s Starwood Preferred Guest account. An eligible night is defined as at least one night paying an eligible rate in the earning period. An eligible rate is any rate that is eligible to earn Starpoints in the Starwood Preferred Guest program. A description of eligible stays and eligible rates can be found at spg.com under the program terms and conditions. See Section 2.1 for the complete definition of eligible rates. Note that certain prepaid room reservations — such as when the booking is made through a third party, including but not limited to travelocity.com, expedia.com, orbitz.com and delta.com — are not considered eligible rates and do not earn Starpoints or qualify for promotional earnings. Stays must be booked through any Starpoints-eligible channel, which includes a travel professional who books through those channels or the GDS. Stays will be processed for the promotion in the order they post to the registered member's account.

All promotions are subject to the Starwood Preferred Guest program terms and conditions, which are subject to change without notice and can be found at spg.com.

[Top]

How many Starpoints do I earn with double Starpoints?

With double Starpoints, an SPG Member will earn four (4) total Starpoints per eligible US$1 spent. Elite-level extra Starpoints earnings and other bonuses will not be doubled. Only the base two-Starpoints-per-dollar eligible earnings are doubled. There is no limit to the number of total double bonus Starpoints a registered member can earn.

How do I earn triple Starpoints?

A registered member will earn triple Starpoints if the eligible stay is two or more nights and includes a Friday or Saturday night at participating hotels and resorts in the SPG program. For participating hotels in the Middle East, triple Starpoints will be awarded for eligible stays of two or more nights that include a Thursday or Friday night. Locations where triple Starpoints for eligible stays of two or more nights that include a Thursday or Friday night are: Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and United Arab Emirates.

Only the base two-Starpoints-per-dollar earnings are tripled. There is no limit to the number of total triple bonus Starpoints a member can earn.

At which hotels and resorts am I eligible to earn double and triple Starpoints?

A registered member can earn double and triple Starpoints at any hotel or resort participating in the SPG Take Three promotion. Click hereto view the complete list of participating hotels and resorts.

What qualifies as an eligible paid stay for the double or triple Starpoints?

[Top]

An eligible paid night includes at least one night paying a qualifying rate at a hotel or resort participating in the SPG program during the earning period. Click here to view the complete list of hotels and resorts participating in the SPG Take Three promotion.

Can I book through a third party and earn bonus Starpoints?

Stays must be booked through any Starpoints-eligible channel, which includes a travel professional who books through those channels or the GDS. This is the only way to earn bonus Starpoints and get our best rates. Stays booked through prepaid, third-party channels — such as orbitz.com, expedia.com, travelocity.com, delta.com, etc. — are not eligible Rate Plans, so the registered member will not earn bonus Starpoints and will not qualify for the promotion. A description of a Starpoints-eligible channel can be found at spg.com under the program terms and conditions, section 2.1.

If part of my stay was reserved using a Free Night Award or SPG® Cash & Points, will my stay qualify?

No. Stays booked with Free Night Awards or Cash & Points do not count as qualifying stays for this promotion. Even if part of the stay is reserved using an Award and part is paid, the registered member will not receive bonus Starpoints for any part of the stay.

If I check in before the earning period begins or check out after the earning period ends, but some of my stay is in the earning period, does my stay earn the bonus?

Yes, as long as one night of the eligible stay is within the earning period, bonus Starpoints will be earned (even if part of the stay falls outside the earning period).

When will double and triple Starpoints post to my account?

Double and triple Starpoints earned during this promotion will post to the registered member's account within two [2] to four [4] weeks of each eligible paid stay posting. Please note: Not all bonuses will post at the same time.

[Top]

Will I earn stay and night credits toward elite status?

A registered member will earn stay and night credits as he or she normally does while earning Starpoints.

Can I take advantage of other bonus promotions during this promotion?

Yes. However, each promotion earns bonuses independently of each other.

A bit disappointed since I have 14 nights in the next 2 weeks, ending May 26.
I can't get through to the terms and conditions - I just get this message:

Thanks for checking in.

You've arrived at the right place, but we're doing a little maintenance right now. Our updated site will be up and running in no time. Thanks for your patience, and please check in again soon.

Bizarre esp. since the MR promo is kind of interesting, driving you to try different brands. This one is a big pile of meh.

After the previous promo that didnt really reward how much you spent on stays and required calculations for many on if it was worth going for the end bonus I quite like that they have a very easy straight forward one!

Have to say would like to see it all properties participating but a promo that rewards how much you actually spend with spg seems pretty good to me! Obviously wont be great for people who do single nights or looking for those who stay at lower cost properties but it makes sense them running a promo that encourages people to stay more than one night and also spend while in the hotel!

Great promo! Glad to see SPG getting back to "unlimited double" mode. It only remains to be seen whether all properties will be participating... that would truly make it an excellent promo !

In the eye of the beholder. The MR promo gives stay-based bonuses, and thus rewards "hotel hopping" and is poor for those with multi-night stays. The SPG promo is exactly the opposite, it gives nothing at all on one-night stays, and rewards multi-night stays.

Is it me, or are both the SPG and MR promotions being bungled this time?

SPG site is down

MR shows no promotions for me, info on the MR FT site mentions that there are always IT problems for promotions that leave people off inadvertently

It is after 10 on the first day people....get your act together

I would say 70% of my stays are only 1 night long. The good news is those other 30% are typically on weekends. But I guess I will be doing most of my stays during this promotion at Marriott hotels. Although I am actually looking forward to seeing how many of the different Marriott brands I can hit during the promo period.

The promos don't even start until 27 May if the leaks are correct. Registration goes through August. Why don't you wait until the promo is actually announced before complaining about not being able to register for it?
