You can now register for the SPG Better by the Night promotion running October 1 through December 20, 2012. Stays of 1 or 2 nights earn double Starpoints (4 points/$1) and stays of 3 nights or more earn triple Starpoints (6 points/$1).
One of the nice features of this registration page is the ability to request an email confirmation of registration.
There is also an online booking bonus of 250 points per reservation or 500 points if booked through the SPG iPhone app.
Promotion registration is required by November 30, 2012 to be eligible for this offer. Retroactive credit for stays completed within the promotion period is a feature of this SPG promotion (see FAQ), so you will get bonus points on eligible Starwood Hotel stays in October even if you do not register until November.
Be sure to check the list of nonparticipating Starwood Hotels carefully. There are around 125 hotels globally not participating in this offer.
Here is the link to my August 23 analysis of SPG Better by the Night. Combined with the online booking bonus, this is a decent bonus points offer for stays from October 1 – December 20, 2012.
