Starwood has just launched a new promotion for their Le Meridien brand in North America. You can earn 1000 bonus points on your first stay and 2000 bonus points per stay on subsequent stays between now and February 28, 2013. You need to register for this promotion by January 14, 2013.
Having a look at participating properties proves, how limited the Le Meridien’s footprint in the North America really is:
Palm Springs Le Parker Méridien Palm Springs
San Francisco Le Méridien San Francisco
Cambridge Le Méridien Cambridge-MIT
Minneapolis Le Méridien Chambers Minneapolis
New York Le Parker Méridien New York
Philadelphia Le Méridien Philadelphia
Dallas Le Méridien Dallas by the Galleria
Arlington Le Méridien Arlington
Montreal Le Méridien Versailles
Bora Bora Le Méridien Bora Bora
Tahiti Le Méridien Tahiti
This is a great promotion for 2000 extra Starpoints after your first stay for which you earn 1000 bonus points. Unfortunately, the Le Meridien only has 11 participating properties for this promotion in the entire North America and French Polynesia. Not sure why the new Le Meridien in Mexico City has decided not to participate?

What qualifies as an eligible paid stay?

No, bonus Starpoints earnings for the Unlock Limitless Earnings with Le Meridian Hotels and Resorts in and French Polynesia promotion are unlimited during the promotion period.

When will bonus Starpoints post to my account?
Bonus Starpoints will post to the registered members account within 2–4 weeks of each eligible paid-stay posting.
Will I earn stay and night credits toward elite status?
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.
