Blog Giveaway 10,000 Starwood Points

You Could Win Starwood Points!

Starwood hotel points are perfect for folks who enjoy having some flexibility. That’s because Starwood has lots of airline transfer partners.  And when you transfer 20,000 Starwood points you get 5,000 bonus miles.

You can check out my series on how to earn & use Starwood points.

Fine Print:  The prizes are worth up to $350.  I make the final determinations for the giveaway and there’s no appeal in the Million Mile Court.  I’m not receiving compensation from Starwood and I’m giving away Starwood points, so please don’t make this hard for me!

    My husband and I have worked in jobs at not-for profit corporations for over 25 years. He is a ecologist and I work in art conservation. Although we love our work, the salary doesn’t allow us to take family vacations. We finally got tired of watching all the other families go off on exciting trips during spring break and summer vacation. With your help, we are on the way to our first major trip in over 15 years. We’ve already accumulated enough points to book airfare for three to Honolulu. We would use the Starpoints to book a hotel stay at the Royal Hawaiian. Thanks for all the great travel tips!
