When can I register for the promotion?

SPG members can register starting June 1, 2015, through 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) August 15, 2015.

Can anyone register for this promotion?

Any member can register at spg.com/makeitcount. A nonmember can join the SPG program and register simultaneously, also at spg.com/makeitcount.

What are the dates during which I can earn bonus Starpoints?

Each registered member can earn bonus Starpoints for eligible paid stays from June 1, 2015, through August 31, 2015.

Will eligible stays or nights prior to registration count toward my earning?

Yes, as long as the member registers by August 15, 2015, any eligible paid stay from June 1, 2015, through August 31, 2015, will count toward earning.

How do I earn the 1,000 bonus Starpoints?

Registered members paying an eligible rate on a stay of two or more consecutive nights that includes an eligible weekend night at a participating hotel or resort will earn 1,000 bonus Starpoints with no limit on earning. An eligible weekend night is a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, except in the following Middle East locations where an eligible weekend night is a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night: Jordan: Amman; Bahrain: Bahrain; Kuwait: Kuwait City; Lebanon: Beirut; Saudi Arabia: Al Khobar, Dammam, Jeddah, Makkah, Medina and Riyadh; Qatar: Doha; United Arab Emirates: Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai and Fujairah.

At which Starwood hotels and resorts am I eligible to earn bonus Starpoints?

A member can earn Starpoints at any of our more than 1,200 participating Starwood hotels and resorts.

What qualifies as an eligible paid stay for the bonus Starpoints?

An eligible paid stay has at least two nights and includes an eligible weekend night at an SPG-participating hotel or resort, paying a qualifying rate that earns Starpoints as defined by the terms and conditions of the SPG program (spg.com/t&c).

Can I book through a third party and earn bonus Starpoints?

No, because stays booked through prepaid, third-party channels, such as orbitz.com, expedia.com, travelocity.com, delta.com, etc., are not eligible Rate Plans, the member will not earn Starpoints and will not qualify for any bonus offer.

If part of my stay was reserved using a Free Night Award or SPG Cash & Points, will my stay qualify?

No, Free Night Awards and Cash & Points do not count as qualifying stays for this promotion. Even if part of the stay is reserved using an Award and part is paid, the member will not receive bonus Starpoints for any part of the stay.

If I check in before June 1, 2015, or check out after August 31, 2015, but some of my stay is in the eligible stay time period, does my stay earn the bonus?

Yes, as long as one night of the eligible stay is within the promotion period.

When will bonus Starpoints post to my account?

Bonus Starpoints will post to the registered member’s account within 2–4 weeks of each eligible paid stay posting.

Will I earn stay and night credits toward elite status?

Yes, a member will earn stay and night credits as he or she normally does while earning bonus Starpoints.

Can I take advantage of other bonus promotions at the same time?

Yes. However, each promotion earns bonuses independently of each other.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

REGISTRATION: SPG® members must register online at spg.com/makeitcount by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) on August 15, 2015. Registered members can earn bonus Starpoints® for every eligible stay between June 1, 2015, and August 31, 2015 (the “Promotion Period”) at participating Starwood hotels and resorts.

EARNING: Registered members will earn 1,000 Starpoints on eligible stays of two or more consecutive nights that include a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night at participating hotels and resorts, other than those in the following Middle East locations: Jordan: Amman; Bahrain: Bahrain; Kuwait: Kuwait City; Lebanon: Beirut; Saudi Arabia: Al Khobar, Damman, Jeddah, Makkah, Medina and Riyadh; Qatar: Doha; United Arab Emirates; Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai and Fujairah. Participating hotels and resorts in these Middle East locations will instead award an additional 1,000 Starpoints for any eligible stay that includes a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night. There is no limit on the number of bonus Starpoints that can be earned during the Promotion Period for this offer. Offer is eligible with other Starpoints promotions; however, each offer will award bonus Starpoints independently of each other, and offers are not combinable.

BONUSING: Bonus Starpoints will post to the registered member’s account within two to four weeks after the qualifying stay posts.

ELIGIBLE STAYS: An Eligible Stay is defined as two or more consecutive nights paying an Eligible Rate in the same hotel regardless of the number of check-ins or checkouts that occur and post to the member’s Starwood Preferred Guest® account. Eligible Stays with at least two nights in the earning period that include a weekend night will receive a bonus. An Eligible Rate is any rate that is eligible to earn Starpoints in the Starwood Preferred Guest program. A description of SPG-participating hotels and resorts and of Eligible Stays and Eligible Rates can be found at spg.com under Terms & Conditions of the SPG Program. See Section 1.4 b iii for the complete definition of Eligible Rates. Note that certain room reservations — e.g., when the booking is made through a third party, including but not limited to travelocity.com, expedia.com, orbitz.com and delta.com — are not considered Eligible Rates and do not earn Starpoints or qualify for promotional earnings.
