Bonus Starwood Points when checking into Foursquare!!

Starwood is offering 250 bonus Starwood points when you check in on Foursquare!  You have to have a confirmed reservation (don’t worry I already thought about driving around checking into every Starwood property) and link your Foursquare and SPG account to collect on the points.  It runs through July 31, 2011.  Starwood didn’t stop there… everyday there will be a Free Resort Night that can be unlocked at one of their 1,000 properties.  Also, each check in through July 31 will enter you in a resort getaway, including five Free Resort Night Awards and airfare.

If you want to participate go to  It was a seamless process and took me less than a minute to link my Foursquare and SPG account.  I’m glad to see travel companies finally taking advantage of location-based services.  If only there was a promotion to earn higher status by checking in on Foursquare!!

Thanks Jamie

I've been at SPG properties each of the last 2 nights, and checked in on Foursquare. Fine print says 3-4 weeks to post...ugh!

It's a little frustrating.. did you want to use the points soon?

I'd just rather they post sooner rather than later, so I can actually remember the points that should be posting. Free points are good, so I shouldn't complain.

Thanks Jamie, another great post!

Just an update on points posting, they seem to post about 24 hours after the stay posts, not 3 or 4 weeks like stated in the terms.

I've got a bunch more Starwood stays coming up, so in combination with the 3 stays, 1 resort night promotion right now, this will be pretty lucrative.
