Probably time to dip my toe further into my backup program and go the next 2 months SPG free.
A back up pool is a great thing to have! I am at 22 stays 22 nights with SPG ytd. So since all SPG promos have been for multi night stayers I diversified abd got top status in 2 other programs while waiting for more suitable promos from my favorite program SPG now I am set to be covered in pretty much any city in the world

Now if only SPG would target me in Q4 then perhaps I will go 50night but at this rate regular old platinum will seem to do

I just wish SPG would do promos for single nighters too, but its their game and MY money 😃😉

I got this today after nothing in previous days.

Book and you’ll earn 2,000 bonus Starpoints on your second stay, 2,500 on your third stay and 3,000 on your fourth stay — up to a maximum of 7,500 Starpoints.

Worth emphasising this for anyone aiming for Lifetime status :

1) the bonus double night credits do NOT count towards the total nights (250 for LT Gold, 500 for LT Plat) requirement.
2) If you include your double credits to earn or renew elite stats, the whole year will NOT count towards the total years (5 years elite for LT Gold, 10 years Plat for LT Plat) requirement. You must still earn elite status the normal way for the year to count.

I don't recall : is this different from similar double-credit promotions in previous years where the bonus stays/nights DID count for LT earning ? I sense there may be trouble ahead for members who aren't aware of this and subsequently find out their nights/years are discounted when they think they have reached LT status.

Make that another member exclusive that I am ineligible for (I'm batting .000). With this and my entirely WORTHLESS Ambassador, I wonder why I continue to give Starwood any business.

Alot of plats got targetted and many of us plats got zip its the way SPG is doing these promos

Just wish they would atleast offer general promos for single night stays too but not in the stars

Any word on non-participating properties? They mention 1300 properties but there is no list of excluded or included ones that I can find.
