Just noticed this online tonight:

Use the free SPG App for iPhone®, iPad® and Android™ to book your next stay or just to save your reservation details and you will be awarded with 500 bonus Starpoints® per stay. Simply display your stay information or reservation number through one of the SPG Apps at check-in time. Offer valid until 31 December 2014 at participating hotels and resorts in Australia, New Caledonia and Fiji only.
Details here.

The app is great. I do all my SPG bookings using it and it's nice to get an extra bonus for that :)

The way I read it is you do not even need to book through the App but just save it and show it on check in.
I am not sure what they mean by save it though, it appears on the App anyway unless they mean Passbook but I am not sure Android has a similar feature.

I have a booking for this Saturday night so will see what happens.

How did you go when you showed the app on check in?
At Check In they said SPG would automatically credit the points, but I was not confident the Check In person knew of the promotion.
I also emailed SPG about it and asked for clarification, and found out all you need to do is show the reservation on the App - no need to of been booked through the App etc.
Now stupid me only read the "Use the free SPG App for iPhone®, iPad® and Android™ to book your next stay or just to save your reservation details and you will be awarded with 500 bonus Starpoints® per stay. Simply display your stay information or reservation number through one of the SPG Apps at check-in time. Offer valid until 31 December 2014 at participating hotels and resorts in Australia, New Caledonia and Fiji only."
It is only valid for bookings made from May 16 onwards as per the terms and conditions - I had booked back in January.
I have suggested to SPG that this needs to be made clear with the text above and not "hidden" away on another page.
I received an email back saying thanks for the suggestion and that Hotel want to give me the points anyway - nice :)

I believe it is 6-8 weeks for the points to show up under the promotion T&Cs

Edit.
Just checked, 4-6 weeks

Disappointed to see this 'vanish'. I was queued up for a good 5000-10000 points on this promotion.

Details off this promotion being pulled here

I had looked for this promo T&Cs again as I have a booking in 2 weeks time that I would of expected the points for and wanted to make sure it would earn the points.
Oh well, and the promised 500 points from my mistake I mentioned above did not ever come through :(
But on another promo I received more points than I expected :)
