Interesting - mine is 2nd stay 2K, 4th stay another 2K, 6th stay another 2K for total 6K bonus points. I guess they can tell who the frequent weekly road warriors are (most of you probably) and who are the "leisure elites" like us

I usually am on the good end of these promos (last one got the free cat 1-5 night for every 2 stays), but on this one, got every 2 stays (max of 6 stays) get 2,000 extra spg points.

Nice, but I'm already requalified for Plat50 and am 10 stays away from renewing Hyatt Diamond... so this wont be persuading me to book SPG when there's a Hyatt in the same city for my future work travels

2k after 2nd stay, 2k after 4th stay, 2k after 6th stay. Only paid rates; award nights and C&P do not count.

I guess a nice present of 6k starpoints, but won't impact my booking habits.

It would be intresting to see what they base these on... After being exluded from most of these promos I stayed over at IHG making SPIRE and Hilton. I figured maybe my absence would get me targetted but I was wrong so I will make Plat with 25 stays but thats it.

It is good to see that they arent just targetting infrequenent members but 100+ nighters too, but at the same time sucks to be on the no promo night. Luckily these are first world problems

I got the double stays/nights offer, which I'm surprised about given that I'm already at 61 nights for the year. Makes me doubt the quality of the algorithm that Starwood uses for this. The irony is that the offer they gave me will make me hit SPG75 faster and make me consider shifting future stays to other programs.

Has anyone ever had luck switching to a different offer? I remember that Marriott used to allow Platinum members to make once switch per promotion.

I got the double stays/nights offer, but not sure how it helps me because I'm already at 120+ nights this year. I know this is a "good" problem to have but I get no benefit from double nights at this point.

Looks like the spgpromos.com site is hammered. Fails to load up anything at the moment. FT effect?

I received an email that didn't say what my promo was, but both the Dashboard and the email link seem to overloaded and not working. Earlier today I had nothing on my Dashboard except the expired promos.

Edit: 6/6/6 for a total of 18K. I do normally do one-night stays, but 18 stays over a few months is rather over-ambitious?!?!?

Got the e-mail (titled "Members Only: Stays Count Double. Register Now.") at 3:50pm ET and immediately clicked through on desktop and iPhone and nada. Looks like site is still down. If it's the offer the subject line says it is, I'll be extremely happy as I'm only at 13 stays for the year and have a bunch of stays/nights coming up in the next few months. Would ensure I'm back on the island for another year!

2nd, 4th and 6th stay earn 2k each. The site is crawling. Thanks OP! The dashboard hasn't managed to attract repeat visits from me, so I appreciate the heads up.

Received the 2k/2k/2k on 2/4/6 stays. Of course I cannot actually register because the site is slammed.

Wife, who is Gold and at 2 stays with her SPG AMEX got:

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 October 15, 2016, and you’ll earn double elite-qualifying credit on all your stays between August 15, 2016, and November 15, 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. Please note: Earning on nights/stays completed before registration is not available with this offer. Registration ends on October 15, 2016.
