Does this mean that stays I've already booked, such as Blue Palace in Crete, doesn't count because it is already booked? I'm staying there 3 nights, starting May 9th.

I am taking my annual BIG vacation in early May, staying at airport hotels on the 1st and 2nd, and Hotel Grand Bretagne in Athens on the 4th-9th. So the only stay that MIGHT count is the 3 nights in Crete. It IS on the list of properties, but was booked months ago. I can't cancel and rebook as it's on points AND I prepaid for an upgrade, 179 Euros a night. I was told I WOULD receive points for that money already spent. Does the date I booked matter, as long as I register on the 3rd? I paid a lot of money for that upgrade so it'd sure be nice if it paid me back in extra star points!

Otherwise, it is a great deal. I just wish it started earlier!
Afaik C&P or award bookings don't even count for this promo?

Nice promo, happens to coincide with my last few spg stays (I'm already transitioned over to Hyatt) to top off my points before I decide what to do with them. Current candidates are Singapore miles or wait to see Marriott conv rare and maybe book 5 night pkg with United miles.

Also tipped the balance of my dilemma where to stay in Detroit in June, funky new aloft or old Westin book. The latter isn't participating so . . . we have a loser!

Le Meridien Fairway in Dubai seems not to be on the list of those hotels participating.

Just double checking this is correct as I don;t think it has opted out of promos before

Can anyone please advise on how many Starpoints as a Gold on the following reservation please:

2 x nights at £150 / night (std room)
Applicable for double starpoints, plus the extra 1k points
SPG Gold status

Essentially I don't know how Starpoints are calculated and paid out - on the £ spent per night? or are there standards for room types with each brand? and then how much additional paid out as Gold?

Thanks a lot

Hard to put a finger on an exact number of Starpoints that will be earned. However, these transactions are converted to U. S. dollars, so begin there.

You would earn 2 Starpoints per eligible dollar + 1 Starpoint for your elite status on total eligible spend.

Add the 2X spend again for double Starpoints. Don't include the elite bonus in this calculation.

Add 1,000 Starpoints for a weekend night.

Other things to consider:

Taxes are not eligible charges.
Will you be having any other incidental charges that are eligible?

If you select Starpoints as your welcome amenity, it can be 125 or 250, depending upon the brand.

The Q&A says:
If I check in before the Promotion Period begins or check out after the Promotion Period ends, but some of my stay is in the Promotion Period, does my stay earn the bonus?

Yes, as long as one night of the eligible stay is within the Promotion Period, bonus Starpoints will be earned (even if part of the stay falls outside the Promotion Period).
So, if I check in on Saturday 5/7 and check out on Friday 5/13, do I:

1 - get double or triple for all nights and get the 1,000 weekend bonus? Or
2 - get double or triple for the nights within the promotion period (and since 5/7 is not within the promotion period, no 1,000 either)

Thanks.

Friday AND Satruday

Loyalty Lobby is stating that one doesn't get the 1,000 points if the reservation includes BOTH a Friday and Saturday per the Ts and Cs. I don't get that interpretation from reading the Ts and Cs, but I can see how one "could" interpret it that way. Any thoughts? I doubt it, but wanted to ask the experts.

I vote yes. They're interpreting "or" as an exclusive or, which is very rarely (if ever) the case in promos.

+1, I interpret that clause as wanting to give out one 1000 pt bonus for weekend stays as opposed to giving out a 1000 pt bonuses per weekend day. Lurkers?

Check out the promo's FAQ, linked in the wiki at the head of this thread - there's an explanation of how this works and should help you determine whether your own stay will be eligible.
