    hi,

    I recently earned 12 points per dollar for a cheap weekend stay due to the Great Weeks, Grand Weekends promotion. That earning rate feels pretty good and makes me very loyal. So please keep it up with the good promotions, and do let us know about the next one.

    And maybe it is time for some speculation. What do you think, or what do you want, the next promotion from SPG to be like?

    I think 'can be' is the key word in your thread title. I'd like to see another free night promo. I couldn't use the one a couple years ago but got a great ROI with last year's free night promo. As always, timing with promos is key.
     
  3. If I had to bet, I would say it will be a stay x times and get 1 FWN promo. If I had a wish it would be for a double stay promo as I have 7-8 stays for Q2 planned already and I would love to get to platinum.

    doesn't SPG always offer a double stay credit promo later in the year for folks who need the little extra to get to a higher tier?
     
  5. They did it in Q4 last year and I would imagine if they did it again at all in 2011 it would be Q4. I can dream though...

    I can't say I've ever seen one.

    No, not necessarily.

    Most definitely we are.

    No, and please don't ask me about a promotion in the second quarter again. When SPG is ready for me to announce it, I will.

    How about the one in Q1 ? ;)

    I received my Great Weeks double base points, I'm guessing the Grand Weekends 500 per thu-sun night run at a less frequent time ? Finally got to stay in Mars (Four Points, Mars PA), too bad no SPG properties in other "celestially named places" that I could find easily... :(

    Yes. The sweeps for each part are run separately from one another.

    I agree. Carlson hotels is announcing a stay two nights, get a free night certificate. Starwood needs to remain competitive! :cool:
