This was a great week for Starwood points and promotions. 7,250 points means 1 free night at a Category 3 hotel ( Cat 3 includes Le Méridien Versailles , The Westin Resort & Spa, Cancun , W Silicon Valley, The Westin Denarau Island Resort & Spa, Fiji or Sheraton Fiji plus many more!) or 2-3 free nights at a Cat 1 or Cat 2 hotel (varies for weekend/weeknight stays)
I had 7 nights (5 nights at the Sheraton Parsippany and 2 night at the Le Parker Meridien NYC) so my base earning plus Platinum bonus was 2,500 points.
I earned 1,000 points (500 points each at the Sheraton and Le Meridien) for my welcome amenity
I used the SPG Social Check-in Bonus to earn 1000 points (250 points each for check-ins on Facebook and Foursquare at the Sheraton and Le Meridian)offer ends July 31
I participated in Starwood’s Make the Green Choice program (at select hotels) for 4 nights at the Sheraton to earn 2,000 points
I “liked” the Aloft Austin @ the Domain on Facebook during a promo they offered this morning to earn 250 points
I earned 500 points while booking a hotel stay for week of Aug 1st. The call center was over-flowing with calls and so I was directed to this page – where I earned 500 points just for booking online. this offer is only valid during peak call volume times.
Starwood points are valuable and so anytime I have the chance to earn more, I’ll take advantage of the offer!
On top of the points, I registered for the Free resort night promo (it’s over this week – sorry, it’s too late for you to register) so I earned another free night brining my total free nights during this promotion to 4.
So, with the points this week and free nights I’ve earned this month, I’ll have enough for 5 nights at the Westin in Fiji! And, I still have all the other points I earned in July to spend! I’ll be spending those at the Le Meridien Bangkok.
