    Nice little bonus as I need to earn some Southwest points to reach my goal for a freebie in the near future. Just wish we could see the Q3 promotion to work out my strategy.

    Anyone know if this works for retroactively? I stayed at a Sheraton on 8/3 and just noticed and signed up for this today. I didn't find any wording about this in the Ts and Cs.

    This promotion does work retroactively.

    This bonus does NOT require Airline Direct Deposit. This is bonus is available even if you continue to earn Starpoints.

    All bonus Rapid Rewards Points will be awarded as Rapid Rewards Points, regardless of the SPG member's Airline Direct Deposit ("ADD") status. If an SPG member is currently enrolled in ADD, they will earn Rapid Rewards Points for their stays as well as the bonus Rapid Rewards Points. If the member is not currently enrolled in ADD, they will earn Starpoints® for their stays and Rapid Rewards Points for the bonus. New members will be enrolled into Starwood Preferred Guest earning Starpoints and the bonus will be awarded as Rapid Rewards Points.​

    Registration deadline: October 15, 2011

    Bonus miles are for stays at Sheraton, Four Points, Aloft, and Element hotels in North America.

    I had 1,000 points post from Starwood on 10/18 -- just listed as "Starwood 10/16/2011". That's obviously the transfer date, not the stay date -- which is going to make this very hard to track. I should have 7,000 points post eventually. Did anyone here get more then 1,000?

    I do see, however, the -1000 miles on each of the stays in my SPG activity. Starwood doesn't seem to know how to spell southwest though.... "SOUTWEST PROMO MILES"
