    Let me be the first to confirm news on SPG’s upcoming promotion. Kicking off September 6th, registered members will earn double or triple Starpoints® on every stay through December 18, 2011. How do you earn the Triple? Just ensure your stay encompasses a Thursday or Sunday night. There are no limits to earnings, and you can earn at over 875 participating hotels and resorts worldwide.

    A coming soon page should be up sometime today at http://spg.com/tripleup, where you can view the promotion details, terms, FAQ’s and the non-participating property list. While registration begins September 6th, stays booked now and consumed during the promotion period will count towards earning.

    I wish it were starting a few days earlier. I have some stays during the period, but I have an expensive hotel night on September 4.

    There are 225 non-participating properties. The list is subject to change. Below is the current list. Don't be alarmed by a few of them. Properties such as the Sheraton Seehof in Davos, Switzerland, are leaving SPG anyway, and there are a few special properties such as Vistana's Beach Club and the Lakeside Terrace Villas which are anomalies anyway. The Hotel Alfonso XIII is closed for renovations.

    However, that's no excuse for most of them. We have some of the usual suspects here such as the Le Parker Meridien properties and the Grand Bretagne. And there are others from among all the brands -- some of which surprise me.

    Ironic that the Tremont, Chicago shows up on the list of non-participating properties. I thought you couldnt earn Starpoints there in any case.

    Several I was looking at going to are on the list. Perhaps a nice, short letter to the GM's of those property explaining why I'll be staying elsewhere will help them reconsider for the next promo.

    Also ironic that since Starwood owns the brand that they can't require participation. You don't want to participate? Don't be a Starwood hotel anymore. We hear Choice Hotels is looking for new properties... :D

    Yes, a few of the properties are entirely non-participating in SPG.

    That would be a good plan. If you stay somewhere else but don't tell them why, they won't know. In the past, some hotels have changed their minds after complaints were voiced to them.

    They could require participation, but that would encourage some hotels to leave the brand altogether. It's a balancing act about whether they should be strict or not.

    So double points on all stays, and triple points if it includes either a Thursday or a Sunday night? All stays double is nice. I gotta think through stays including a Thursday or Sunday, I definitely have a few coming up!

    Wouldn't you know it the only place I have a reservation at is on this list of non-participants.

    I wish with all these programs they were either all in for every promotion or they weren't part of the game at all.

    You got my vote on this, all hotels within a chain should be participating properties, that's fair and square!:confused:

    I agree that I would like them all in, but I can't say that I'd like this entire list of non-participating properties to leave SPG altogether as the alternative.

    I always like a good bonus point promo. And since basically every business trip I take involves a Sunday or Thursday night, this is a winner for me.

    Too bad about The Nines though. Guess I'll stay at the Westin and just swing by urban farmer for dinner...

    Never mind, Westin Portland is out too. Oh well, easier to stumble upstairs after too much wine and good food anyhow.

    It's a nice promotion but the long list of non-partcipating hotels is too long. But 7 points per dollar spent is decent enough.

    Basically this offer is the same as what we`ve been getting in Japan all the last couple of months before restricted to just triple points on stays from Thurs to Sun and not on food etc.
