    Whilst I didn't believe at first all these random blog posts about this. I think I have a clear answer.

    Whilst I have never been a bit fan of copying and pasting private emails into a forum and I ummmed and arrred about posting this however I think I'll make an exception this time as I think this information might be of high value to this forum. I apologise in advance for doing this to the consultant I was dealing with as she was extremely helpful and attentive.


    Questions I still have are, whether this is able to be used with the Getaway promo of free nights and whether it can be used with the Getaway promo and a specific hotel promo of double points on the room booking. I guess we shall all have to wait and practise our Chinese in preparation for this new promo!

    According to this blog here the website is in fact http://starwoodmadeforchina.com/ep2/ but yet that too has no banner or anything confirming this promotion so again we are still left wondering.....

    I hope a banner is released very soon to put our minds at rest!

    Can't see the banner for the signup bonus, but if you can identify the country in Chinese characters (I believe it is alphabetical, but the China and Taiwan are at the top (or so I think I am reading). Most of the cities are listed in English (e.g. Paris and London). The only other difference I could see on the website was the calendar, left one for the check-in, and right one for the departure. The next page looks like the familiar navigation window for the hotels in the area (and various pricing options).

    The offer is for reservations at hotels in China only.
    Register by July 31, 2011.
    Bonus points are for stays booked between May 1 and July 31. It seems to also require that the stays must begin by July 31.
    Allow 4-6 weeks for the bonus points to post.

    That is fantastic news, I am just planning for an upcoming trip. I have 5 nights in different hotels to book in Guangzhou, Shenzhen. Would that include Hong Kong? Or is that considered outside of China?
