Update: It looks like SPG has already closed the survey, and really quickly too! I hope many of you were able to get in on it before it was shut down.

I love me some free points- especially Stawood points, which I value at over 2 cents a piece. Starwood’s social media rep just posted a deal on Flyertalk where you can take a simple survey and get 1,000 free points, which to me is worth at least $20. Simply leave your name, email and Starwood number in the last box in the comments section. Click here to take the survey.

The survey isn’t very difficult and can be done in less than 60 seconds. It doesn’t seem to be the most well thought out in terms of how you answer, but that’s not my concern! I’m sure they will shut it down once they get enough responses, so get in sooner than later!

I personally know Starwood Lurker and the SPG team, so I feel comfortable passing this on as a legitimate promotion. Hat tip to One Mile at a Time for bringing this to my attention!
