Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) made an early announcement this week about a Sheraton Free Weekend Nights promo that will start early July.
You will earn a free weekend night certificate for every five qualifying Sheraton nights between July 9 and September 30, 2015. You can earn maximum of 3 free night certificates after 15 nights and they must be used by December 13, 2015.
You can access Starwood’s web page for Sheraton brand here (the promo sign up page is not active yet).

The Sheraton Free Weekend Nights award will book in the same inventory as standard awards.
Note that only paid stays (not Cash & Points or awards) are eligible for promotions. Although Four Points do has the “by Sheraton” on its name, it is a separate brand and does not count towards this promotion.
I would “value” the free weekend night certificate at maybe 5K to 7K Starpoints each due to limitation on its usage (only Sheratons) and expiration. I have been planning to go back to Maldives later this year and could perhaps stay at the Sheraton Full Moon Resort again for couple of nights when transiting in Male. Would be good use of these certificates.
Remember that you can combine this with the other concurrent promotions namely the Make It Count Weekend night promo (read more here) and the Select Member Exclusive 8 (read more here) that I just signed up successfully.
It is good that Starwood has started to give proper advance notice of its upcoming promotions. It makes it easier to take advantage of them.
