SPG members can register for Great Weeks, Grand Weekends at http://www.spg.com/eamegreatweeks from January 3 through March 31, 2011. Travelers who are not yet SPG members can join the award-winning loyalty program and register for the promotion as well. Membership is free and Starpoints are awarded beginning with the first eligible stay. 

SPG strives to create consumer-facing promotions that reward their existing membership while also attracting new travelers to the program. In addition to Great Weeks, Grand Weekends, recent successful promotions include Every Night Counts, which rewarded members with double or triple Starpoints the more nights they stayed; SPG Free Weekends, wherein guests could earn one free weekend night for every three stays at participating properties; and SPG More Nights = More Rewards, which allowed guests to earn more rewards the longer they stayed at a Starwood property.
