The SPG address requirement three months prior to the start of the promotion is a new twist that I have not seen before with SPG. Let’s hope that it doesn’t spread to other promotions. I have sometimes switched my account addresses based on the promotions that the airlines and hotels have been offering.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

Eligibility: Offer valid for SPG® members who reside in mainland China and have a valid China address on their SPG profile. Member must not have had a non-China address on his/her SPG member profile within 3 months of promotion start date. Members residing in Hong Kong, Taiwan or Macau do not qualify for the promotion. 

Earning: Members will earn triple Starpoints® with every eligible paid stay between 1 June and 31 October 2013 (the “promotion period”), at 68 participating properties in United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Italy. A list of participating properties can be found at or and is subject to change. Members who earn triple Starpoints will earn an additional four Starpoints per eligible US$1 spent (for a total of six Starpoints per dollar). Elite-level extra Starpoints earnings and other bonuses will not be doubled or tripled. Only the base 2-Starpoints-per-dollar earnings are tripled. There is no limit to the number of bonus Starpoints that can be earned during the promotion period. Free Night Awards and Cash & Point stays are not eligible to earn bonusing under this promotion. 

Bonusing: Bonus Starpoints will post to the registered member’s account within 2–6 weeks after the qualifying stay posts. 

Eligible Stays: An eligible stay is defined as one 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 one night in the earning period 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 eligible stays and eligible rates can be found at under program terms and conditions. See Section 1.4 for the complete definition of eligible rates, but note that certain prepaid rooms where the booking is made through a third party (including but not limited to, and are not Eligible Rates and do not earn Starpoints or qualify toward promotional earnings.
