    We wanted all of you to be among the first to know that as of today registration is open for SPG Sheraton Free Weekends, our richest SPG Sheraton promotion in the history of the program.

    Here are the details:

    • You’ll be able to earn a free Sheraton weekend night at any Sheraton for every five Sheraton nights you stay.
    • Register now at spg.com/sheratonfreeweekends and stay between July 9th and Sept 30th to earn.
    • You can earn up to three free nights that can be redeemed separately or consecutively.
    All Sheraton hotels and resorts around the world, category 1-7, are participating.

    Just like our existing free night redemption, these Sheraton free nights don’t come with blackout dates or capacity controls. As long as the hotel has a standard room available – it’s your's.

    As a reminder, the earning period for SPG Sheraton Free Weekends overlaps with our ongoing SPG Make It Count promotion, until August 31st. Be sure to register for both promotions to collect extra SPG rewards!

    I do not want to be ungrateful but I am not sure about the title.: announcing our richest SPG Sheraton promo ever. I remember sometime between 2005 and 2010 SPG was running a promotion "stay twice (at any SPG Hotel) get one stay for free" With the current promo its stays at Sheraton only, they have to be redeemed by December, 13th 2015 and are good at Sheraton's on WE only. I remember back then I redeemed mine at the St Regis in SIN...

    Thomas - as you state the previous promotion was not a sheraton promotion.

    I miss the old days. Even though I kind of missed out on them.... as a half-assed particpant in the points game, we earned things easily by accident. Now, even on top of the game, it takes some thought and much more consideration on where to put my travel stays.

    Yeah, I know. I wonder if this sudden generosity has anything to do with bookings down at the Sheratons in the last couple month and the big overhaul SPG is planning on Sheraton Hotels to get them back to standard.

    me too. Nothing either on the Marriott front. Or where are the days one would get double Qualifying miles on UA? Even my kids would make Gold then...

    And yet the other promotion was more valuable for guests staying at Sheraton properties. It is always entertaining to see the fine print twisted to make the platitudes legally accurate, even if less than such in spirit.

    Marketing is a fine line between convincing customers they're getting more than is being paid for while also not lying to them. This one seems to me like a bit of a lie by omission.

    Meh, any time I see a superlative in any marketing material, I know to only trust it (if at all) to be accurate in the narrowest and most marketer-friendly sense.

    "Sheraton Free Weekend Night Awards will be credited to the member's account within 2–4 weeks of the eligible stay posting to the member's Starwood Preferred Guest account."

    Log into your SPG account at spg.com and check under My Earned Awards. Once the awards are there, call the Customer Contact Center nearest you to redeem.

    I hope that helps.
