REGISTRATION AND EARNING: Member must register online at SPG.com/freeweekends by June 30, 2010, 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Member can earn one (1) Free Weekend Night Award with every three (3) eligible stays at any property that participates in the SPG® program between May 1, 2010, and July 31, 2010. A list of non-SPG participating properties can be found at SPG.com/t&c under section 5.1.
ELIGIBLE STAY: An eligible stay to earn a Free Weekend Night Award is defined as one or more consecutive nights within the earning dates at any of the more than 940 Starwood Preferred Guest® properties, paying a qualifying 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. Multiple rooms charged to the same member during the same stay will only count as one stay. SPG properties and a description of qualifying rates can be found at SPG.com/t&c under program terms and conditions: See Section 4B.4 for the complete definition of Eligible Rates, but note that certain pre-paid rooms where the booking is made through a third party (including but not limited to travelocity.com, expedia.com and orbitz.com) are not Eligible Rates and do not earn Starpoints®.
AWARD: Each Free Weekend Night Award must be redeemed by calling the Customer Call Center and mentioning Award ID 3FWFN. An earned Free Weekend Night Award can be redeemed for a future stay in a standard room at Starwood Preferred Guest Category 1–6 properties between May 7, 2010, and December 19, 2010, for one Friday, Saturday or Sunday night except for hotels in select countries in the Middle East and Africa. Redemption will be for a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night in the following countries: Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. The Pine Cliff Residences, Albuferia, Portugal, and The Canyon Suites at The Phoenician, Scottsdale, Arizona (both Category 6 properties), and the W Koh Samui (opening August 2010 and a Category 6 property) are excluded from redemption as they do not have standard rooms. There are no limits to how many Free Weekend Night Awards can be earned, and they may be used on consecutive weekend nights for one single or double occupancy standard room only, including the cost of the hotel room and room tax. Free Weekend Night Awards are not transferable, even among members of the same household, and may not be given as a gift. However, a member may use two or more Free Weekend Night Awards on the same night for additional rooms as long as all rooms are under the member's name and the member stays in one of the rooms and pays for all the rooms. Free Weekend Night Awards are subject to room availability. Free Weekend Night Awards will be credited to the member's account within 3–5 days of every third stay posting to the member's Starwood Preferred Guest account. Free Weekend Night Awards have no cash value and are provided as part of the SPG hotel loyalty program.
