Promo Advance Notice : Earn Sheraton Free Weekend Nights - 9Jul-30Sep 15

We wanted all of you to be among the first to know about a few SPG global promotions.

- We also wanted to give you advance notice of a promotion we’re working on to start July 9th – Sheraton Free Weekends. It’s the richest Sheraton focused SPG promotion in the history of the program. You’ll be able to earn a free Sheraton weekend night for every five Sheraton nights you stay from July 9th – Sept 30th. You can earn up to 3 free nights that can be combined, and can be used at any Sheraton hotel or resort (all Categories 1-7!) through December 13th. Just like our existing free night redemption, these Sheraton free nights don’t come with blackout dates or capacity controls. As long as the hotel has a standard room available – it’s your's. Registration will open July 9th, but bookings can be made any time.

You’ll be able to earn in both promotions as long as you register for both.

Best regards,

Sorry its not the richest promo, a number of yrs ago it was stay 2 get 1 free (or stay 3 get 1 free) I earned way more then 3 free nights and still remember spending some great weekends in the likes of The Imperial in Vienna, then a cat 6 highest cat. So a 5 for 1 isnt so great, better then nothing but nothing to chase after either

Just curious : how did you earn a night at the Imperial Vienna in a Sheraton-focussed promotion ?

One to consider for clarification when the T&Cs for this promo are published : are 'Luxury Collection' brand hotels that have 'Sheraton' in their name (eg Sheraton Algarve, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Albufeira) included for the purposes of earning and/or redeeming ?

I believe craz was referring to a promo a few years back which was not limited to Sheraton only.

Two potential dumb questions.

Is the Sheraton promo only good for stays at a Sheraton property -- ie NOT a Westin?

And regarding the Make It Count promo -- I generally do one month stays -- does that mean that the entire stay is only eligible for a 1,000 total bonus points?

Thank you for sharing the news. The additional promotion in July is good to know about as I plan my travel.

as TerryK posted, it was stay x get 1 free at any *W property and it wasnt capped at 3 max.

Now if that would resurface (not holding my breathj) for any Cat I might chase it but not at 5 for 1 nor max of 3 nights especially when it must be at a Sheraton

That is correct, it's a Sheraton focused promotion.

Yes on both. Although you could book break up the stays, but have to pay local hotelier taxes in exchange for the extra bonus points.

Any properties that are not eligible for earning and/or redemption in this promotion will be explicitly highlighted in the Terms and Conditions once the promotion goes live.

Note the wording though. It's the richest Sheraton focused promo. Previous (richer) promos were SPG based.

As a marketing man, I tip my hat to the marketing team for the spin on this one.

Still a decent promo, even if not the richest SPG promo.
