Starwood is running a new promotion called Take a Spin and Win, where you get 1 spin per day and can win SPG points.


Hopefully this will be a better promotion than La Quinta’s, which started off well and then all of a sudden has taken a nose dive (no points given out for Carolyn or I the last 2 days).

One nice thing about this promotion is that Starwood points (SPG) are much more useful than La Quinta Rewards points.

  1. It only takes 2000 points for the lowest category Starwood hotel (on a weekend)
  2. Starwood hotels are much nicer than La Quinta hotels
  3. You can also transfer SPG points to most airlines, and if you transfer 20,000 or more, you get a 25% bonus.

Looks like you can ‘spin’ once per day per SPG account, though at least for today’s spin, it gave me a 2nd bonus spin.

Let me know if you win anything!!
