I have an offer that if I book a stay through the app I get a free night certificate for categories 1-5 anyway to exchange it for points
Do you have to book an award stay or if you pay will u also get free nights?

Quickest way to get from spg gold to spg plat? Is status matching done with spg?

No matching. They do have challenges though.

people stay in Category One hotels for cash and points. If you do that to reach a total of 25 stays (consecutive nights don't count) then you'll be plat.

It's good for executive Club Lounge privileges, 500 bonus pts per stay, and other good perks.

How long would you hypothetically stay platinum for doing that
If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill

Many people enjoy the platinum status. It lasts for 14 months each renewal -- through Feb of the following calendar year. Also, with 5 years of Elite status, you'll achieve lifetime Gold.
With 10 years of plat status, you'll achieve lifetime platinum. Link: https://www.starwoodhotels.com/preferredguest/about/index.html?categoryId=brand.benefits.platinum#InnerPage

Staying at Sheraton Tel Aviv on a Thursday night and then again the next Sunday and Monday nights, all on points.   Any way to take advantage of the 3 nights + 1 even though not consecutive (or any other advantages that I'm not thinking of)?

When I'm signed in, it says "Enjoy 1 more night when you stay 3 consecutive nights or more."

Oh you're talking about a specific promo? I thought you were referring to the stay 4 nights on points get 5th free, which is always running
