I’m giving away 100,000 Starwood Hotels Starpoints to one lucky winner, just for helping me plan my Disneyland vacation! Keep reading to find out how to enter.
To give you an idea of how much these 100,000 Starpoints are worth, consider that you could stay at a category 3 hotel, like a Sheraton, for 14 days for free! Or, if you don’t want to stay for 14 days, you could take advantage of the Nights & Flights option and use the Starpoints to get free hotel and free airline tickets.
I hear a lot about people who use rewards points (frequent flyer miles, hotel rewards points, etc.) to take free or almost free vacations and I’m about to do just that. In January – the coldest month here in Alaska – I’ll be taking my family to sunny California to Disneyland for almost free! How would you like to win up to 2 weeks worth of free hotel stay or free airline tickets, courtesy of Starwood Preferred Guest and American Express?
Give me your best vacation tip in the comments below (or just leave any comment) to be entered to win 100,000 Starpoints (which are good at hotels worldwide and for free airline tickets on most airlines).
Why are we Giving Away Free Hotel & Airline Tickets?
We’re able to give away the 100,000 Starpoints thanks to a promotion American Express has going right now. Good from now until August 22, 2011, people who apply for a new American Express Starwood Preferred Guest card will also get up to 30,000 free Starpoints (10,000 at their first purchase and 20,000 more by spending $4,500 in 3 months). Did I mention that there’s no annual fee for the first year?
If you’re planning to take a trip soon, or send kids off to college, now would be a great time to sign up for this new American Express SPG card and use the rewards points towards a free family trip! The American Express SPG card racks up 1 Starpoint for every dollar you spend. You could move all of your regular expenses (groceries, fuel purchases, etc.) onto the card and earn free rewards. This is how my husband and I manage to get so many free airline tickets with our rewards card.
But remember, you DON’T have to apply for the American Express to enter our contest – we’re giving away 100,000 Starpoints anyway!
Help Me Plan My Disneyland Trip with Your Best Tip!
Starwood Preferred Hotels is giving me 100,000 free Starpoints too to plan my vacation. Of all the destinations, Disneyland was on the top of our list for a family vacation. We’ll use the Nights & Flights option to get 2 free plane tickets and 5 hotel nights, then use the rest of the points for 5 more free hotel nights. That’s 10 free days at the Sheraton Anaheim, right next to Disneyland with a free shuttle to and from the park.
Ah, the sweet sound of the word free! Keep in mind we’ll be traveling with 4 small kids, which is no easy task. I could really use your best vacation tips – both for Disneyland and just for flying with young ones – to help me plan my trip. Give me your best tip below and you could win 100,000 free Starwood points!
