Let me share the following piece of exciting news with you.
SPG members can now connect their SPG and foursquare accounts and earn bonus Starpoints and more for foursquare check-in's. Here are some of the exciting things we have going on over the next few months:
- Between now and July 31, 2011, members who link their SPG and foursquare accounts will earn 250 bonus Starpoints for every foursquare check in with a confirmed reservation at any of our more than 1,000 Starwood hotels and resorts. There are no limits to the bonus Starpoints a member can earn during this promotion (and yes, it's combinable with SPG Getaway Free).
- Plus, for the month of May we are hiding Free Resort Night Awards daily throughout our hotels and resorts and members who check in via foursquare have an opportunity to unlock and win a free resort night.
- With each foursquare check in through July 31, you'll also be entered to win a resort getaway, including five Free Resort Night Awards plus airfare.
- Finally, each month SPG will declare the member with greatest number of foursquare check in's at any of our hotels and resorts as the new "SPG Mayor". In addition to bragging rights, your mayoral duties will include sharing your favorite insider travel tips and destination hotspots with fellow frequent travelers around the globe.
Go to spg.com/socialcheckins to get started in connecting your accounts and to spg.com/foursquare for a list of the current promotional details.
Come August there will be additional foursquare promotions that will vary during the year.
Since this is a new space that SPG has entered into, we of course look forward to any questions or feedback you may have. Do let us know.
