500 Series promo's - anyone get one in the past week?

There are a number of threads on these 500 series promo's as individual threads, i.e., double stays, double points, free weekend stays, etc. William stated in one of the threads that the rollout process, like the 400 series promo earlier this year, will take time. Moreover, he said it is possible that some will get the promo in the mid to later stages of the rollout.

I started this thread to see if any FTers are getting the offer in the mid to later stages?

For me no 500 series yet.

Nothing either. Starwood just doesn't want to make their loyal guest that happy . I haven't received a promotion for anything for a long time now but everytime someone receives an promo that I would like I would then try it to find out that i don't qualify for it. Do I need to take my loyality somewhere else in order to start receiving promos once again?

None for me!

Nothing for me either. I was on the phone with Platinum services and asked why I never received offers. The very nice gentleman checked my acct. and stated that even though that I was signed up to receive email offers from them it appeared they were targeting gold members to qualify them for Platinum status. I guess it pays to be gold. Needless to say, I won't qualify for Platinum after this year, only gold so I'll see what offers I get next year. But I'm not holding my breath. Sad, but I took my business to Hilton where I get some offers. Better than nothing from Starwood. Only did 10 Starwood stays this year to just make gold and see what happens. Probably won't get anything because they'll start targeting Platinum. That's my luck!

Some good points you make about Hilton. They have added a "my way" promo for Diamonds (equiv. to Plat) where you get to choose an amenity upon check in. It is almost exactly the same as the Stawood Plat amenity. If you take the amenity points and add all the Diamond bonus stuff you can earn a category 4 free night after four two night stays.

I received two promos from Hilton this year. At Starwood I had to call up several times until I got someone to give me a "me too" 400 series. The last promo Starwood sent me was a year ago. I like Starwood the best, but will probably stay only enough to make Plat again due to lack of incentive.
