So a few days ago, Starwood launched a sweepstakes where you can play 2 times (per SPG account) called Tap into Luxury.


You get 2 spins per account.  It’s interesting to see the different resort-style hotels that Starwood has, but so far I am striking out on winning anything and have frankly given up playing most days.

According to the rules, in addition to the grand prize of 250,000 Starpoints which obviously I won’t win, there are:

  • Free Night Award: 195 Awards available for any SPG-participating Category 1–5 hotel or resort. Approximate Retail Value (ARV) is US$145.00. Award will be available in the SPG member’s account within three (3) weeks from the Game Period end date.
  • Starpoints® Award: 390 Awards available. 500 Starpoints: ARV US$12.50; 1,000 Starpoints: ARV US$25.00; 5,000 Starpoints: ARV US$125.00. Starpoints will be added to SPG member’s account within three (3) weeks from the Game Period end date. Use and expiration of Starpoints is pursuant to the terms and conditions of the SPG program.
  • iTunes® US$50.00 Gift Card: 156 Awards available. Gift Card will be fulfilled by mail within four (4) weeks from Game Period end date. Prize only available to U.S. residents with a mailing address in the U.S.
  • $50.00 Ticketmaster Cash Code: 975 Awards available. Cash Code will be fulfilled via immediate confirmation email upon winning. Prize only available to U.S. residents.

So…. has anybody actually won anything?
