When I click on the link provided ( www.spg.com/promo ), there is no mention of any specific promos. Here is what I see:

"To register for your Starwood Preferred Guest promotion, please enter your member number."

Then when I enter my SPG member number, it just comes back and says:

"Please check your Starwood Preferred Guest member number and re-enter."

This appears to be targeted.

This offer may be targeted, with plats getting only second offer.

IMHO, 18,000 points is better than 3 weekend nights anyway.

I guess it was important for me to get the 20k offer or business was shifting to Marriott. I already have 41 stays, and booked 2 more for May. I guess I will ride this one out for the full 20k bonus points.

Thank you for registering for this Starwood Preferred Guest(R)
promotion. Now you can earn 4,000, 12,000 or 20,000 bonus
Starpoints(R) when you stay four, eight or twelve times between
June 1 and August 31, 2007.

Watch your Starpoints stack up for free nights, free flights
and on-the-spot indulgences unique to each hotel. There are no
blackout dates on Free Night Awards, so if we have a standard
room on the date of your choice, it's yours.

This was the full address of the landing page:
www.spgpromos.com/quarterly/index.cfm?EM=VTY_SPG_promo_promotion

But I got there by typing in www.spg.com/promo. I typed in my spg number and received the choice of the 2 promos. Perhaps try again later - and good luck!

Only 9k for 9 stays for me.... that makes two quarters in a row where I haven't been targetted for the main promo but instead I have had to settle for the general secondary promo (whine... whine...). Hopefully the trend will revert soon.

The offer as a Plat that I got was:

Earn 3,000 bonus Starpoints after every three (3) eligible stays up to a maximum of 9,000 bonus Starpoints. Stays must be at participating properties between June 1 and August 31, 2007.

Not being a moron I am, of course, taking it.
