Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) is launching their More For Your-promotion for double or triple Starpoints for stays of two nights or longer between September 15 and December 15, 2014 at participating properties.
You earn double Starpoints for all stays of two nights or more and triple Starpoints if your stay includes Friday or Saturday night.
You can register for this promotion on SPG’s website here. Remember that the promo registration closes on October 31, 2014.
Note that in the following countries in the Middle East the Friday or Saturday is defined as Thursday or Friday: Amman: Jordan; 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.
Seems that stays of two nights or longer that include BOTH Friday and Saturday would only earn double Starpoints.
Stays of one night don’t earn any promotional bonus points under this offer.

This is fairly typical Starwood promotion. The only catch appears to be that stays that include BOTH Friday and Saturday will only earn double and not triple Starpoints.
Personally, this promo does nothing for me, as my stays all tend to be just one nighters.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Registration: SPG Members must register online at spg.com/moreforyou by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) on October 31, 2014. Registered members can earn bonus Starpoints® for every eligible stay between September 15, 2014, and December 15, 2014 (the “promotion period”), at participating Starwood hotels and resorts. A list of nonparticipating hotels and resorts can be found at spg.com/moreforyou and is subject to change.
Earning: Registered members will earn double Starpoints on eligible stays of two or more nights, or earn triple Starpoints on eligible stays of two or more nights that include a Friday or Saturday night at participating hotels and resorts, other than those in the Middle East. Participating hotels and resorts in the Middle East will instead award triple Starpoints for eligible stays of two or more nights that include a Thursday or Friday night. Participating properties in the following Middle Eastern countries will award triple Starpoints for eligible stays of two or more nights that include a Thursday or Friday night: Amman: Jordan; 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. To view the complete list of hotels and resorts not participating in the promotion, visit spg.com/moreforyou. Members who earn double Starpoints will earn an additional two (2) Starpoints per eligible US$1 spent (for a total of 4 (four) Starpoints per dollar). Members will earn an additional four (4) Starpoints per eligible US$1 spent (a total of six (6) Starpoints per dollar) on eligible triple-Starpoint stays. Elite-level extra Starpoints earnings and other bonuses will not be doubled or tripled. Only the base two-Starpoints-per-dollar earnings are doubled or tripled. There is no limit on the number of bonus Starpoints that can be earned during the promotion period. 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 2–4 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 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 prepaid room reservations, such as 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.
Here are frequently asked questions by Starwood about this offer:
When can I register for the promotion?
SPG® members can register starting September 8, 2014, through 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) October 31, 2014, hereafter referred to as the “registration period.”
Any member can register at spg.com/moreforyou. A non-member can join the SPG program and register simultaneously, also at spg.com/moreforyou.
Each registered member can earn bonus Starpoints for eligible paid stays from September 15, 2014, through December 15, 2014.
Yes, as long as the member registers by October 31, 2014, any eligible paid stay from September 15, 2014, through December 15, 2014, will count toward earning.
A registered member will earn triple Starpoints if the eligible stay is two or more nights and includes a Friday or Saturday night at participating hotels and resorts. For participating hotels in the Middle East, triple Starpoints will be awarded for eligible stays of two or more nights that include a Thursday or Friday night. For all other eligible stays of two or more nights, a registered member will earn double Starpoints at participating hotels and resorts during the promotion period.
A member can earn double or triple Starpoints at over 1,000 participating Starwood hotels and resorts. Click here to view the complete list of hotels and resorts not participating in the promotion.
An eligible paid stay has at least two nights 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). Stays booked through prepaid, third-party channels, such as orbitz.com, expedia.com, travelocity.com, delta.com, etc., are not eligible Rate Plans, so the member may not earn Starpoints and will not qualify for any bonus offer.
With double Starpoints, a member will earn four (4) total Starpoints per eligible US$1 spent. With triple Starpoints, a member will earn six (6) total Starpoints per eligible US$1 spent. Elite-level extra Starpoints earnings and other bonuses will not be doubled or tripled. Only the base two-Starpoints-per-dollar earnings are doubled or tripled. There is no limit on the number of total bonus Starpoints a member can earn.
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.
Yes, as long as two nights of the stay are within the promotion period, bonus Starpoints will be earned on every night during the entire stay (even if part of the stay falls outside the promotion period).
Bonus Starpoints will post to the registered member’s account within 2–4 weeks of each eligible paid stay posting. Please note the double Starpoints may post prior to the triple Starpoints bonuses.
A member will earn stay and night credits as he or she normally does while earning bonus Starpoints.
Yes. However, each promotion earns bonuses independently of each other.
