I orginally wrote about the promotion here.  You get double points for every stay between May 1st and July 31st, with an extra 500 points if you book your stay via the Starwood mobile app.

Note that whilst the promotion runs until the end of July, you can only register up to the end of June.  If you have a Starwood account, you might as well register now, just in case an unplanned stay comes along later.

    From the FAQ:

    If I check in before May 1, 2013, or check out after July 31, 2013, does my stay earn the bonus?

    Yes, as long as one night of the stay is within the promotion period, double Starpoints will be earned on every night during the entire stay (even if part of the stay falls outside the promotion period). The stay will also receive the mobile web or mobile app booking bonus if applicable.
