A list of participating properties can be found at http://www.americas.starwoodoffers.c...dienstarpoints and is subject to change.

    Please Note: Members will know they have successfully registered for the Unlock Limitless Earnings with Le Meridian Hotels and Resorts in North America and French Polynesia promotion upon reaching the registration confirmation webpage. Registered members will not receive a registration confirmation email

  • Earning: Registered members will earn 1,000 bonus Starpoints on first eligible stay at participating properties during the promotion period. Registered members will earn 2,000 bonus Starpoints on their eligible stays after their first eligible stay at participating properties during the promotion period.

  • Eligible stays: An eligible stay is defined as one or more consecutive nights within the promotion period at any of the participating properties paying an eligible rate in the same hotel regardless of the number of check-ins or checkouts that occur and post to the member's Starwood Preferred Guest® account. Multiple rooms charged to the same member during the same stay will only count as one stay. Eligible stays with at least one night in the earning period will receive a bonus. An eligible rate is any rate that is eligible to earn Starpoints in the Starwood Preferred Guest program.

See section 1.4 for the complete definition of eligible rates, but note that certain prepaid rooms where the booking is made through a third party (including but not limited to travelocity.com, expedia.com and orbitz.com) are not eligible rates and do not earn Starpoints or qualify toward promotional earnings.

FAQs

When can I register for the promotion?
SPG members must register by January 25, 2015, midnight ET, thereafter referred to as the "registration period."

Can anyone register for this promotion?
Any member may register. A non-member may join the complimentary SPG program and register simultaneously.

What are the dates during which I can earn bonus Starpoints®?
Each registered member may earn bonus Starpoints for eligible paid stays from December 11, 2014, through March 1, 2015, hereafter referred to as the "promotion period."

Will eligible stays or nights prior to registration count towards my earning?
Yes, as long as the member registers by January 25, 2014, any eligible paid stays or nights from December 11, 2014, through March 1, 2015, will count toward earning.

How can I earn 1,000 or 2,000 Starpoints?
A registered member will earn 1,000 bonus Starpoints on their first eligible stay and 2,000 bonus Starpoints on eligible stays thereafter at Le Méridien hotels and resorts in North America and French Polynesia that are participating in the promotion during the promotion period.

At which Starwood hotels and resorts am I eligible to earn my reward?
A member may earn 1,000 bonus Starpoints on their first eligible stay and 2,000 Starpoints on eligible stays thereafter at participating Le Méridien hotels and resorts in North America and French Polynesia.

What qualifies as an eligible paid stay?
An eligible paid stay is any stay at a participating Le Méridien hotel or resort in North America and French Polynesia paying a qualifying rate that earns Starpoints as defined by the SPG Terms & Conditions (spg.com/t&c). Stays booked through pre-paid third-party channels, such as orbitz.com, expedia.com, travelocity.com, etc., are not eligible rate plans, and so the member may not earn Starpoints and will not qualify for any bonus offer.

Is there a limit to the number of Starpoints I can earn?
No, bonus Starpoints earnings for the Unlock Limitless Earnings with Le Meridian Hotels and Resorts in and French Polynesia promotion are unlimited during the promotion period

If part of my stay was reserved using a Free Night Award or SPG Cash & Points, will my stay qualify?
No, Free Night Awards and 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 member will not receive bonus Starpoints for any part of the stay.

If I check in before December 11, 2014, or check out after March 1, 2015, does my stay earn the bonus?
Yes, as long as one night of the stay is within the promotion period, 1,000 bonus Starpoints on your first eligible stay and 2,000 bonus Starpoints on eligible stays thereafter will be earned (even if part of the stay falls outside the promotion period).

When will bonus Starpoints post to my account?
Bonus Starpoints will post to the registered members account within 2–4 weeks of each eligible paid-stay posting.

Will I earn stay and night credits toward elite status?
A member will earn stay and night credits as he or she normally does while earning bonus Starpoints.

Can I take advantage of other bonus promotions at the same time?
Yes, however, each promotion earns bonuses independently of each other.

You always could in the past so I would assume that is the case again. I will be trying this out in January so I'll let you know.

Question for the lurkers: If I have a 2 room reservation at Le Meridien, it will count as 2 stays for purposes of SPG qualification... this much I know. However, will I get 3,000 bonus points for my stay (1,000 for my "first" stay and 2,000 for my "second"/subsequent) or is it one bonus per member per hotel per date (meaning I earn 1,000 only)?

It's right in the T&C:

Thanks, I skipped over that one in the FAQ as I thought it would be the standard reply to what counts as an eligible stay.

Fire the proofreader too. Knowing how to spell the name of your employer or client is Job 1.
