    I pray this isn`t the first quarter promo as there`s nothing about Asia in it!

    Earn up to triple bonus Starpoints with SPG Better by the Night.

    Register for our SPG® Better by the Night promotion and earn unlimited bonus Starpoints® even faster. With every stay from January 9 through April 8, 2012, at over 750 participating hotels and resorts in North and Latin America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, you’ll earn:
    • Double Starpoints on two-night stays
    • Triple Starpoints on stays of three nights or longer
    Register by March 15, 2012, and then book your stays to begin earning unlimited bonus Starpoints at all nine brands in the Starwood Preferred Guest® program. The longer you stay, the more bonus Starpoints you’ll earn.

    All the properties not participating in this promo can be found here and sign up for this promo here

    Awesome. Registered and have two week-long spg stays starting literally on the ninth. Guess that's one way to build the account to start the year.

    Thanks for this....I tried using the links to sign up and I got a 404. The SPG website looks a little jinky right now, so I'll try later.

    You might want to wait until January 9th when the site goes live for real.

    Seriously. I'm a bit annoyed that Asian hotels have been excluded from the promo and that Amex SPG users were excluded from the Asia specific promo! Looks like there's no love for Asia travelers using the SPG Amex.

    I`m sure they will run a separate promo or at least i hope so.

    Over winter i just book a plan that get double points on stays every time which is something my hotel runs every winter which is cool however I`ll adjust my stays to avoid staying as much as possible during Q1 if there`s no promos. The joys of being a leisure Platinum!

    Promo officially starts today.
    SPG.com/bythenight

    I can't say that this part of the promo's FAQ seems sensible...
    If part of my stay has an Award Night or a night using Cash & Points, will my stay qualify?
    No. Free Night Awards and Cash & Points are not Starpoints-eligible rates. Even if part of the stay is Award and part is paid, the member will not receive bonus credits for any part of the stay.

    I could understand if the bonus were based only the number of paid nights within the stay, but the blanket exclusion doesn't make much sense. I assume that it's a technical issue, but they ought to just offer to handle them manually upon request.

    "Please Note: This webpage serves as confirmation of registration for the SPG Better by the Night promotion. You will not receive a registration confirmation email. Should you have any questions or concerns, please click “contact us” to speak with a customer service associate."

    I hope I don't have to rebook after registering for a promo. Pity they cap multiplication on a third night, would love to get 20x points on a twentieth night - Starwood doesn't love really long stays :)

    No, you don't need to rebook after registering.

    Also...
    If I check in before January 9, 2012, or check out after April 8, 2012, does my stay earn the bonus?
    Yes, as long as one night of the stay is within the promotion period, double or triple bonus Starpoints will be earned on every night during the entire stay (even if part of the stay falls outside the promo window).
