Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG), the loyalty programme for Starwood hotels (Sheraton, Westin, St. Regis, ALoft etc) has just launched a new promotional game that offers the chance to bag some free SPG Starpoints!
For me, Starpoints are by far the most valuable Points/Miles ‘currency’ that you can collect, so free Points is fantastic!
Whether you use them for Category 1 + 2 hotel stays (just 2,000-4,000 Points), transferring to airline frequent flyer schemes that have great award chart sweet spots but are otherwise hard to collect Miles in (like Alaska + Virgin America), or take advantage of some of the more advanced possibilities like ‘Nights and Flights’, you can get massive value from Starpoints.
SPG have ran games like this in the past and I (+ quite a few readers!) have done pretty well out of them.
This time, there are 1,470 instant prizes randomly time seeded so that the person who plays first after any of those particular times wins a prize.
- 630 x 1000 Starpoints
- 420 x 5,000 Starpoints
- 210 x 10,000 Starpoints
- 210 x Free Night Awards Category 1-5
My reading of the rules is that you can only win an instant prize once over the course of the competition, which is actually great because it makes your overall chance of winning at least something much higher. You can have a read of the the full rules / terms and conditions here yourself, if so inclined.
I didn’t win first time, but hey – I can play every day until 12th September, so there’s still plenty of time!
There is also a ‘Grand Prize’ of 50,000 Starpoints plus five Free Night Awards (Category 1–6), that you get entered for every day you play, but I wouldn’t cross your fingers too hard for that!
Bottom line: free SPG Starpoints are great and there’s a realistic chance of winning a decent chunk (even just 1,000 isn’t to be sniffed at!), so play here.
