  1. I hope they got a lot of points to give out as dang this is going to be big IMO! 🙂

    thanks for the plug!

  2. can someone help out a FB idiot? I have an account but I have no idea how to “share it on your wall with your friends” so I can complete the requirements for the points.

    Please talk to me like I’m 5, which I feel like when dealing with facebook.

    Thanks!!

    Thanks for the heads up! I signed up, but look at the ‘rules’, something isnt right here:

    Eligibility (obviously it has to be restricted to residents of Wisconsin who are at least 18, but do you have any other restrictions): Employees are not eligible. All contestants must be a Starwood Prefered Guest to receive points. We will only award 3000 points per person, per SPG account.

    Contest Period (starting date of when entrants can register to be a part of the contest through the date the winner is announced): Start: Wednesday June 1 : End: Thursday June 30

  4. It said they will give me the 3000 points but reading their t/c it says the valid dates are from june1-june30. Anybody ideas?

  5. Lucky,

    Thanks for this. I signed up my account and both of my parents so hopefully 9k free SPG points. I tried yesterday for the other one with Firefox but couldn’t get it and missed out on another 3k!

    IF YOU USE FIREFOX IT MIGHT NOT WORK, SO USE INTERNET EXPLORER!

  6. I read the contest rules and it looks like this promotion ended in June. 🙁

    Here’s what it says “Everyone who ‘LIKES’ our page and tags us in a post in the month of June will receive 3000 SPG points.”

  7. I got a confirmation that 3000 points would be deposited in my account. Take a screenshot. If it doenst happen, a quick email to CS with the SS proof will hopefully rectify.

  8. Just a heads up, anyone who likes and then tries to delete the post…I tried and I got a “failed to hide minifeed” message. Once you post it, you can’t delete it.

  9. I got in and used Firefox 5, hope it works after reading the above! No error messages and it posted to my wall properly.

    As a side note the form doesn’t work on iPhone, you can like the page, but can’t get to the form. Mad flight back from the gym ensued to get the 3K SPG points.

  10. This is my hometown SPG property and saw this last week when I was there (flyers at checkin). I talked to the front desk people last week and warned them they were probably going to get shelled on this if they didn’t change the eligibility standards.

  11. Did anybody read the rules? It says it’s only valid to residents of Wisconsin and it’s valid 6/1 to 6/30.

    Eligibility (obviously it has to be restricted to residents of Wisconsin who are at least 18, but do you have any other restrictions): Employees are not eligible. All contestants must be a Starwood Prefered Guest to receive points. We will only award 3000 points per person, per SPG account.

  12. Looks like the promo is gone!
    I was able to get in but hope they will honor it and not cop out with the lousy T&C…

  13. Where did you folks post your SPG # for the points? Maybe it’s because FB is blocked here at work and I can only get to it on my phone?

  14. PROMO HAS BEEN REMOVED!

    It was good while it has lasted!

    Their fan count went from 700ish to 1,700 in less than an hour lol!

  15. it doesn’t say that it’s limited to WI residents. that verbiage is in the Q portion of the document, no the answer. besides, that’s not a real T&C document anyways, that’s the application form the hotels fill out that corporate stamps their approval on to do the promo.

  16. I saw this promo on Sunday when I was onsite there, signed up for it on Monday, got points deposited yesterday. So if they give them out to anyone who signed up today, they probably will deposit quick.

  17. The Sheraton Madison “promo” feels like a massive bait+switch. I never would have troubled my FB friends with seeing that post if I had known it was merely for a contest to win a free night’s stay in Madison WI!

  18. @Mike L
    They can ended it whenever they want to. My assumption is they have set number of points they want to award once that number is hit, down goes the promo.

  19. The promotion would have been more effective on Twitter — possibly making #SheratonMadison a trending topic

  20. OK; i’m a naive newby; i don’t even own a credit card, because i’ve never been 1 to follow the crowd. But being the niggardly resourceful person that i am, i get the impression that 1 is required, in order to ‘rack up the miles’. Which makes me ask “WHICH CARD GIVES THE BEST TRAVEL REWARDS?” BTW, what is “spg” mean?? Thanks!

  21. Has anyone received points for this? I ‘liked’ them while the promotion was still live, but nothing has posted to my SPG account.

  22. The points didn’t post so I reminded them on FB and got a friendly reply and a week later (last week) 3000 pts posted to my SPG account!
