The first round of summer hotel bonus points promotions came out a month or two ago, but in the last few days we have had a second round of promotions appear, some of which are stack-able with the first round!

Earn Double IHG Points:

On top of their “Share Forever” promotion that awards up to 174,000 points, IHG is also offering double points from July 15 – August 15, 2015. The email I received stated this morning that since I had already registered for the Share Forever promotion that I don’t have to register separately for the double points promo.

Double IHG PointsThe double points promo does not appear to be targeted based on what I received, but I can’t swear to that.  I know you will certainly want to register for the Share Forever promotion in order to potentially be included.  The terms also indicate that the promo is open to legal residents of Argentina, Aruba, Brazil, Canada, Cayman Islands, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, the 50 U.S. (and D.C), Puerto Rico, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

Earn Three Free Sheraton Weekend Nights:

One of my favorite hotel promotions this summer is actually a Sheraton specific promotion that just opened for registration. The promo will run from July 9 – September 30, 2015 and it will stack with the 1,000 point SPG summer promo.

You can earn a free Sheraton weekend night for every five eligible Sheraton nights you stay from July 9 – September 30, 2015.  You can earn up to 3 award nights to stay at Sheraton hotels or resorts around the world by December 13, 2015.

An eligible night is a stay with at least one eligible paid night at any participating Sheraton hotel paying an eligible paid rate during the promotion period.  Free Night Awards and Cash & Points Award nights are not eligible toward promotional free night earnings.

Sheraton properties not participating in this promotion include:

  • Sheraton Addis, a Luxury Collection Hotel
  • Sheraton Algarve, a Luxury Collection Hotel
  • Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, a Luxury Collection Hotel
  • Sheraton Kuwait, a Luxury Collection Hotel
  • Sheraton Steamboat Resort Villas

They award nights will work just like regular points reservations in that there are no blackout dates – they are valid any night that has standard rooms available for sale with cash on weekend nights.  Sheraton Free Weekend Night Awards will be credited to the member’s account within 2–4 weeks of the eligible stay posting. Sheraton Free Weekend Night Awards can be redeemed for any participating Sheraton Category 1–7 hotel for a standard room for any weekend night (Friday, Saturday, Sunday except in the Middle East, where it is Thursday, Friday, Saturday).

You will need to call SPG customer service and mention Award ID F1WFN to redeem. These awards are not transferable, but will count toward elite earning qualification.

Also remember that the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Amex will provide complimentary access to Sheraton Club lounges for the cardholder and a guest beginning on August 11th, so Sheraton properties may be looking better and better for many of us!

Earn 2,000 Bonus Club Carlson Points per Night:

Those that register can earn 2,000 bonus Club Carlson Gold Points per night during eligible stays at any Carlson Rezidor hotel worldwide from July 7 – September 27, 2015, when making the reservations on a Carlson Rezidor website or mobile app.

  1. Still learning how this works !?so if I book 4 free nights with my points and pay for the 5th then I qualify for an Spg hotel night for future use?

    • I like the way you think, but you would have to have five eligible nights to earn one free night and points nights would not be eligible to count toward the promo (assuming the system counts things the way it is supposed to).

  2. This SPG promo fits great with some business travel I have coming up. Should have enough for 3 free nights!! I also have enough SPG points to book my weekend travel with right now. Should I go ahead and book that then cancel after I “earn” the points to get a free night? This is for San Francisco and those room are over $500 a night normally!
