ALL current promotions

I figured I'd start a thread where we can post all Starwood targeted promotions...either FT links to current promotions or any new promotion that they may receive. This will consolidate all promotions and make it easier to decide which promotion we want to ask the Lurker to register us for. Thanks Lurker for including us all!!

1. 50% off award stay - Redeeming Is Believing 1 promo:
Members who have 2 eligible stays during the promotion period will earn one "Two For One Award." This award allows the member to redeem for two free nights at the Starpoint cost of one free night in the category of their choice. Maximum one award for this promotion

AND

2. 50% off award stay - Redeeming Is Believing 2 promo:
Members who have 2 eligible stays during the promotion period will earn one "Half Off Award." This award allows the members to redeem for one free night at 50% Off the regular Starpoint cost that night in the category of their choice per award. Maximum three awards for the promotion for 3 total nights at half-off the normal number of Starpoints

Wouldn't it be nice if someone posted a "promo" they received that was as follows:

1. Stay once between 2/1 and 4/30 and earn 10,000 SPG points.
2. Stay twice between 2/1 and 4/30 and earn 10,000 SPG points and earn credit for 20 stays at a Starwood property for 2002 requalification.
3. Stay thrice between 2/1 and 4/30....10,000 points....20 stays...and 4 free weekends at ANY and ALL Starwood properties
4. Stay four times between 2/1 and 4/30 AND post one message during that time to *wood FT forum....10,000....20 stays....4 free weekends....guaranteed presidential suite upgrades until 12/31/03 at any *wood hotel WORLDWIDE!!!

Now that would be a promo.


Anyway....I am thinking of going for the 5 stays for 10,000 points - all or none. Any opinions out there?

Correct me if I'm interpreting the promotion incorrectly, but wouldn't you get 27,000 points after 5 stays for the Bonus Starpoints 2/1 -4/30 promo listed above? Or do you just get a grand total of 8,000 points after 5 stays?
Starwood Lurker, do you know the answer to this question? Thanks!!!

Thanks for the links.

I'm interested in the 50%off/2 for 1 award promo(s), but want to make sure I request the best one. I read the related threads.

Does anyone know if there more than one version of this award discount promo? Is it really just one promo with slightly different language depending on whether it was sent via email or snail-mail?

It seems that there might be one version that yields 50% off a single night and one version that is 2 nights for the point cost of one night.

My apologies if this has been answered already (I can't find it) ... is there a stay-length restriction, meaning are each of the 50% coupons good for a limited number of nights?

[Edited to remove redundant question]

If you are speaking of the SPG50% Off Award, they are usually stamped for use within a year of the month you receive them. The stay length restriction is 5 nights.

If you are referring to one of the Redeeming Is Believing promotions, the reservation has to be used by September 30, 2002. The stay restrictions are noted below.

I was in fact referring to Redeeming Is Believing.

Thanks for the insight, Lurker!
