How do I earn triple Starpoints?

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 in the SPG program.

Locations where triple Starpoints for eligible stays of two or more nights that include a Thursday or Friday night are: Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and United Arab Emirates.

Can I book through a third party and earn bonus Starpoints?

Stays must be booked through any Starpoints-eligible channel, which includes a travel professional who books through those channels or the GDS. This is the only way to earn bonus Starpoints and get our best rates. 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 registered member will not earn bonus Starpoints and will not qualify for the promotion. A description of a Starpoints-eligible channel can be found at spg.com under the program terms and conditions, section 2.1.

If part of my stay was reserved using a Free Night Award or SPG® Cash & Points, will my stay qualify?

No. Stays booked with Free Night Awards or 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 registered member will not receive bonus Starpoints for any part of the stay.

If I check in before the earning period begins or check out after the earning period ends, but some of my stay is in the earning period, does my stay earn the bonus?

Yes, as long as one night of the eligible stay is within the earning period, bonus Starpoints will be earned (even if part of the stay falls outside the earning period).

When will double and triple Starpoints post to my account?

Double and triple Starpoints earned during this promotion will post to the registered member's account within two [2] to four [4] weeks of each eligible paid stay posting. Please note: Not all bonuses will post at the same time.

Will I earn stay and night credits toward elite status?

A registered member will earn stay and night credits as he or she normally does while earning Starpoints.

Can I take advantage of other bonus promotions during this promotion?

Yes. However, each promotion earns bonuses independently of each other.
