1,000 SPG points for liking the Four Points Chicago and sharing a link

The Four Points Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile is giving away 1,000 SPG points for following three easy steps.

1) Like them on Facebook here and fill out the short form, including your first name, last name, email address, and SPG number.

2) Share the link with your friends on Facebook (which you’re automatically prompted to do after you fill out the form). Yes, I hate spamming my friends, but c’mon now, I don’t value them nearly as much as 1,000 SPG points. šŸ˜‰

3) Post a comment on the Four Points’ wall.

It seems too good to be true, though as far as I can tell it’s legitimate. The only limitation I see is that they’re trying to reach 1,000 “likes,” so they may very well cut off the promotion when they reach that point. As of the time I’m writing this they have 837 “likes.”

Also, they seem to have learned from the Westin Charlotte’s botched promotion with this disclosure:

Enjoy!

  1. Looks like they’re trying to do it right this time – with the disclaimer, an app that’s collecting the information, etc.

  2. It was at 965 when I got mine in… It does feel slightly unsettling, I must admit, to like a place I have never been to and don’t plan on ever staying at.

  3. So how long does it take for the points to post??
    Did you guys get the points right away??
    I was like 990 also, just check my account but no points yet.

  4. I got in around 1100. We’ll see if the points still come through!

    Also, I don’t see anything about posting on their wall…

  5. Has anyone seen any points from the Westin Charlotte? I actually stay there frequently and still haven’t seen any points post. So what makes you think this promo is different? They’ve still broken abbot 3 Facebook promotions rules.

  6. there’s a post on their wall saying that the SPG portion of the giveaway has ended. What a crock of crap.

  7. Yep wife and I both got our 1000 from Westing Charlotte but I seem to have been too slow on this one! Ratz!
