    I am currently a Starwood platinum, but haven't stayed much this year. This came in my inbox today.

    It's a promotion open to anyone. You can go to website to see if you don't get an e-mail.

    ETA: See below. I was wrong about this.

    Really? I could really do with that at this point :)

    Do you have a link to the signup page?

    I would be surprised that it's open to everyone. Something as potentially as lucrative as this would be all over the blogosphere I would think.

    With some Starwood properties on the weekend as cheap as 2000-3000 points, and award nights count toward status, it would be pretty easy to "buy" status cheaply on points. :)

    You're right. I couldn't read it on my phone that well and confused it with the fall promotion. :oops:

    I got one. Was glad to see they improved their promotion signup page to one click. I didn't have to put in my number and email.

    Does this mean you can do 13 separate one-night stays and achieve Platinum until 2017?

    That's what it looks like to me. I don't need that many to retain my status.

    Bruce - I got it about five months ago. Did five phantom stays locally to top my year off early. Knew I had a couple of stays planned which allowed me to hit my 25 in August. I was SHOCKED when I got that email - I've been Platinum non-stop for 10 years so no idea why I was targeted but certainly one happy camper as each year it requires some cash outlay for phantom stays - just fewer this year. Enjoy it!
