    A Platinum CSR just spilled the beans to me... not really blown away, but at the same time better than Q1's promotion. It was posted on flyertalk as well with little details. I'm just curious when the full announcement will take place!

    My best guess is whenever SPG is ready to spill the beans.

  4. How about we settle for a "less than full" announcement by Astrophy? Come on, give up the basics and we can read the t & cs later.

    Astrophy didn't give details either in the seven page thread on TOBB, but someone else there said that it will be free nights in resort hotels (only). This might save others from reading all the posts in the thread in that other place.

    3 stays for 1 night at a resort. Any day of the week. Sounds a lot like the free weekends passport promotion that they ran around april/may of last year.

    If that is it wonder how excited the masses are going to be.

    Personally for us it will encourage zero stays as it does not fit our travel profile. We are not resort type of peeps, probably the only resort location we would possibly use before the end of year would be Hawaii and Starwood properties are not our preferred options in that location.

    That said, I hope it works well for others.
     
  10. Which is why (limiting to resorts only) this is probably not the Q2 promo - my guess only.

    I hope so too as I hardly see myself getting to a resort any time soon.

    It`s probably a side promo like the 30% off deal going on at the moment.

    This reminds me of when someone said the Hyatt promotion would be for resort credits or something like that. Of course that turned out to not be the case.

    I believe it. This promosed 3-for-1 fits nicely in line with their big SPG Resorts push going on currently.

    This would compliment my travel plans nicely :)

    If there is a stay x earn x nights promo, the Grand Mauritian (Trip Report) would be a good place to redeem certificates for, not sure its worth the 12k-16k points for the rates. These stay x earn x nights are a good value proposition to me.

    Seems like a big push for Asia and Pacific but I guess given the radiation scares it`s not real surprise.

    I wait for the great news of Q2!

  21. This deal is not really new, there has always been z3r, pay two nights get one free, and z6r, pay for four nights and get two free. These have been available in SE Asia for years.
