Pretty sure multiple bookings should count as separate stays. I did it last year.

I've only had 4 stays YTD.

I wonder what did s_yvr do to get that FNA offer...pretty amazing!

As a data point I'm Plat but my stays YTD have been way down. Perhaps calculated to bring me back..

If it was nights, that'd be easy. Stays? Not so much.
Same offer for me. If it involved free nights I would probably look at increasing my number of stays through changing hotels but this current promotion is not appealing enough for that.

Thumbs down not eligible

Sorry
Unfortunately, you're not eligible for this promotion. Don't worry, there are still a lot of rewards to be earned. Visit your SPG Dashboard to get the inside scoop on our latest special offers and promotions.

I got double elite qualifying! ^

-----
Let’s keep a good thing going
ELITE STATUS — ON THE DOUBLE.

We want to ensure that you keep enjoying elite benefits, including Free Night Awards, Award Flights, late checkouts, welcome gifts, and more. So we’re bringing you a special offer to help you renew your SPG® elite status twice as fast.

It’s simple: Register by June 1, 2016, and you’ll earn double elite-qualifying credit on all your stays between April 1, 2016, and June 30, 2016 — with no earning limits. For example, if you have five eligible stays and 10 eligible nights during the promotion, SPG will credit you 10 stays and 20 nights toward elite status.
-----

According to the T&C:

The bonus elite qualifying nights that post to the member's account as result of the offer will not count toward SPG Lifetime™ status nights requirements. Members upgraded to elite status solely as a result of the bonus elite qualifying stays or nights posted will not have a year of elite status count toward SPG Lifetime qualification, unless the member achieves the typical required stays and nights needed for elite status.

I'm SPG plat since 4 years, typically with 50-60 nights/year and I got an offer.

"Members can earn one (1) Free Night Award after they book and complete two (2) eligible stays, a second Free Night Award after they complete their third (3rd) eligible stay, and a third Free Night after they complete their fourth (4th) eligible stay from April 1, 2016, through June 30, 2016"

No offer for me.

Glad to see the money spent with SPG as a Plat member is appreciated. Booked an upcoming stay with Marriott instead.

Although they'll soon be one company anyway, and I will probably book another upcoming stay with SPG in the next couple weeks, my revenge booking just proved that these stupid marketing decisions that leave some elite members out do in fact have a cost to SPG : )

Starwood Lurker - please forward on.

Like most of the recent special offers nothing for me . Time for me to scope out a new programme - apparently Marriott Rewards is Great!
