Successful registrants will earn for stays up to 18th December 2016:

  • Double points on weekday stays of two or more nights.
  • Triple points on weekend stays of two or more nights. These will need to include a Friday or Saturday for most parts of the world, but Thursday or Friday night in the Middle East

Unlike the recent IHG promotion which can give a small boost for even one night stays, both conditions of this SPG promotion require multiple night stays which make it lose some appeal for mattress runners. Still, if you are a heavy business traveller, or someone who takes weekend breaks then you might be set for some decent earnings.

A list of participating hotels is here (it would have been better for SPG to say which ones are NOT participating), and terms and conditions are here.

I find that the sweet spot for SPG redemptions are Category 1-3 hotels, especially with their part pay with points and cash options. You can snag decent hotels for around 2500 points plus cash. With a base earning rate of 2 points per US Dollar (before factoring in elite status) you can get your 2500 points after spending $600 during this promotion period on a weekday, dropping to $500 for Golds and $400 for Platinums.

Another decent way to spend SPG points is to transfer them to airline at a 1:1 ratio, with a bonus 5000 points per 20 000. So this way you will transfer 20000 SPG points and receive 25000 air miles.
