Nothing for me for the 3rd promo in a row. I've been a Plat 50 last 3 years but decided earlier in the year that as obviously SPG is not interested in my business I would take it elsewhere. So my 90 nights a year have been going to hotels where I want to stay and it's been a pleasurable eye opening experience. Independents give free breakfast, free internet and usually are lower cost. Properties are often much nicer than what the chain offer. As to the points, well I've been saving money and earning plenty of points through RocketMiles that more than compensate. I'm sitting at 1 SPG stay for the year and it's likely that number will not increase.

3rd stay, get 5K
6th stay, get 5K
9th stay, get 5K

My YTD is 30nights/10stays so it appears quite targeted for me.

97 nights YTD, no additional promo showed-up.

I was targeted with a double stays offer (which made up 15 of the 97)

Nice. A new targeted promo to keep me interested while we wait for the next global promo to arrive. I got:

3 stays: 3k points
6 stays: 3k points
9 stays: 3k points

making a total of 9k additional Starpoints before 15 November.

I like that it's simply based on stays and not stays with a minimum of two nights or including a Friday or Saturday night like the global promotions. But unfortunately this weekend's stay at Le Meridien Bangkok will not be eligible because it doesn't start until 15 August.

Last time I got the double night credits and I'm now at 64 nights so Plat75 is locked in again this year.

I like this offer (effectively an additional 1000 points per stay) and I like that it will run concurrently with the next global promotion whenever that starts. I typically do two-night weekend breaks around Asia that cost around US$120-140 a night so if the next global promo is anything like the last one I'd get 1000 (this bonus) + 500 (Plat gift) + 960 (at 4x points per US$) + 480 + 1000 (2x points per US$ + Fri/Sat stay global promo) making 3940 Starpoints for a weekend stay. Or enough for a free night at the Aloft in KL or Le Meridien Chiang Rai. Stay two get one free. Nice. Thanks.

Same here. And it's a silly promo - some brands like Element and Tribute are really hard to find.

Did you receive this by email or just by logging into the dashboard?

Does anyone know?

I clicked on the Terms & Conditions and it stated that it does not count towards lifetime status.

Lifetime Platinum
30 stays, 50 nights so far... (of course just checked in today, but it's too early for the promo). But...

I also got the Double Elite (Stays Count Double) qualifying promo. (Even tho I'm already LTP.) But question:
Will the nights count towards 75 and Ambassador?

Looks like I got a good promo. Currently have 0 points and 0 stay in SPG (new account).

Promo Detail:

Complete 1 stay (Aug1 - Oct 31) and get 1 free night certificate.
Complete another stay and get additional free night cert.
Free Night Awards exp February 28, 2017. Good for cat 1-5.
Free Night Awards will be credited to the member's account after 2–4 weeks of the stay posted.

If someone can find really cheap rooms and complete the stays this can be a money maker.

Ditto. Second time this year. Am I secretly not registered for this targeted promos or something? Hilton and Hyatt it is.

As expected, nothing shows up, I am really disappointed. So they know that I am staying a bit more compared with other people and decided not to give any extra sweets to me?
