Update: The contest has ended and the randomly selected winner was @brianbergstrom who said that his favorite SPG Amex card benefit was the 5 nights/2 stay credits awarded annually toward elite status. Great choice, Brian, and thanks to the roughly 700 people who took the time to enter during this “flash giveaway” contest! There will be at least one more SPG giveaway on this site this year, and it is even bigger. Stay tuned!
Just as I promised earlier in my review of the Westin Grand Central and SPG Amex US Tennis Open event, today we are giving away 30,000 Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints in conjunction with my participation in the “SPG Stars” program. This is a super fast giveaway that runs just six hours today only (September 10th) from 11AM – 5PM Eastern, so don’t delay if you want a chance to win!
The rules are very simple:
2. Tweet me letting me know what your favorite Starwood Preferred Guest American Express card perk is using the hashtag #spgamexMP
An example of an eligible Tweet would be:
@Mommy_Points my fav SPG Amex perks are the free 5 nights/2 stay credits toward elite status it gives me each year #spgamexMP (you can even just copy and paste this Tweet if you want!)
Some other perks of the SPG Amex card you might like include:
- Ability to earn one valuable SPG point for every eligible dollar charged on the card
- 2x points on charges from a SPG hotel or resort
- SPG Gold status if you spend $30,000 in a calendar year on the card
- Amex customer service and warranties
- Access to special cardmember events
3. To be sure you are entered, make sure in the Tweet you have both @Mommy_Points and the hashtag #spgamexMP
The nitty gritty:
To be eligible you have to enter on Twitter between 11AM ET and 5PM Eastern today. You can find all the fine print of the promotion here. Some of the fine print includes:
- You have to be at least 18 and a resident of the US to qualify
- Only one entry is allowed per person/Twitter account
- Winner will be selected at random
- Winner is responsible for paying taxes on the value of the prize ($750 ARV with SPG points being valued at 2.5 cents per point)
- A winner will be contacted within 24 hours and announced both here and on Twitter
Please let me know in the comments section if you have any questions (remember entries are accepted only on Twitter as outlined above). Good luck!
