Throughout August, Marriott Rewards is hosting a “What’s Your Travel Type” Facebook game where members can win one of six grand prizes tailored to their personal travel tastes and preferences. To celebrate this promo they’ve given me 50,000 Marriott Rewards points to give away to a lucky TPG reader as well, so read on below to find out how you can win.

Here are the details on each of the packages Marriott is offering on Facebook:

Family Traveler
Package includes:

  • 10 rooms for 4 days / 3 nights at any Residence Inn in the U.S.
  • $300 gift card to stock your in-room fridge
  • 10 Snapfish® photo books
  • $500 gas card
  • $3,000 in spending money

Weekend Warrior
Package includes:

  • Five 3 day / 2 night weekend stays at any Courtyard in the U.S. or Canada for winner + guest
  • Breakfast for two each morning in The Bistro
  • $500 gas card
  • $2,500 in spending money

Luxury Lover
Package includes:

  • 6 day / 5 night stay at any JW Marriott worldwide for winner + guest
  • 500,000 Rewards points to convert to airline miles
  • Daily spa treatments
  • Private consultation with resident nutritionist & fitness expert
  • $2,500 in spending money

Individualist
Package includes:

  • 6 day / 5 night stay at El Monte Sagrado, Taos, NM for winner + guest
  • 500,000 Rewards points to convert to airline miles
  • Customized art, spa & food experience
  • $2,500 in spending money

Discoverer
Package includes:

  • 8 day / 7 night stay for winner + guest at both hotels in one of the following locations – Europe (Barcelona & Paris), Caribbean (Puerto Rico & Miami) or U.S. (New Orleans & Chicago)
  • 500,000 Reward points to convert to airline miles
  • Personalized Discovery Experience curated by local Renaissance Navigators
  • $3,000 in spending money

Urban Explorer
Package includes:

  • 5 day / 4 night stay in Madrid for winner + guest

  • Two round-trip train passes from Madrid to Toledo
  • 500,000 Reward points to convert to airline miles
  • Dinner for two at Madrid’s historic Santo Mauro hotel
  • Two tickets to Thyssen Museum
  • $2,500 in spending money

Personally, the Luxury package is the one that interests me most, but since I love Madrid, I might just have to choose the Urban Explorer package one day since those 500,000 Marriott Rewards points that come with it will be converted to 100,000 miles on airlines including Delta, United and British Airways. You can find the rest of the terms and conditions here. You have until August 31, 2012 to enter, and you can enter once each day, so might as well go back to the Facebook page every day for more chances to win. Winners will be contacted on or after September 5.

My 50,000 Point Giveaway
Even if you don’t win Marriott’s contest, you still have a chance at the 50,000 Marriott Rewards points I’m giving away and they’ve informed me t hat there are no taxes on the 50,000 points. That’s enough for 2 nights at a Marriott Category 5 property (25,000 points a night) like the JW Marriott Hotel Bangkok, and even if you used it at a top-tier Category 8 Marriott property like the Autograph Collection Boscolo Palace Roma, you’d still have 10,000 points left over. You could also consider using these points for free nights at Ritz-Carltons, whose Tier 1 properties like the Ritz-Carlton Beijing require just 30,000 points for a free night redemption, while the full 50,000 points would get you a free night at a Tier 3 property like the Ritz-Carlton Istanbul, or the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay.

In order to enter my giveaway, you have to enter Marriott’s Facebook promo and then tell me in the comments of this post which package you chose and why. You have until Sunday August 19, 2012 at 6:00pm Eastern Time to enter and a winner will be picked at random and announced on Monday August 20th. Good luck!

I’d stay at the JW Marriott in Rio if I won the Luxury Lover package.

    I chose the discoverer package because of the Miami/Puerto Rico combination option. I love Miami and have been wanting to go to Puerto Rico for a while now.

  • http://twitter.com/JeremyKrall Jeremy Krall

    Ended up Luxury Lover as well. Typically I would consider myself a little more of an explorer or discoverer, but in all honesty there is nothing like being pampered a bit and the Luxury Lover also allows for maximum flexibility in location. Also, guaranteed the wife will make heavy use of those daily spa treatments ;)

  • Caldwelr

    I picked the Urban Explorer because I haven’t been to Spain in many years.

  • http://twitter.com/srchenn Sravi

    Would take the urban explorer package in Madrid—Have always wanted to explore the area the city more. This would be the perfect home base. Thanks!

  • http://acoupletravelers.com/ acoupletravelers

    I choose the Discoverer package because after reading Julia Child’s memoir I dream of spending time in Paris, strolling through the markets, sipping on fresh coffee while biting into a flaky croissant and spending the afternoon exploring the sights and just taking in the city. With the discoverer package I would definitely use those 8 nights towards a trip to Paris!

  • E Ip

    I went with the Luxury Lover package because, well, we prefer to travel in luxury and that package is destination-agnostic so we can go anywhere in the world!

  • Yong

    I chose the Luxury Lover package as it has the least limitation in terms of location.

  • Tony9

    I chose the Luxury Lover package because that’s how I like to travel. Even though I like sightseeing and experiencing new cities, cultures, and languages, there’s nothing like getting away from it all in a luxurious tropical locale.

  • pcg

    I had a hard time deciding between Discoverer and Luxury, but I eventually chose Discoverer. I’ve never been to Paris and would love to experience it with a local guide. I’ve been to Barcelona, but only for a couple of days and I feel like I missed a lot along the way. Here’s hoping!

  • Jarred

    I chose the Weekend Warrior package to make trips with the family during the school year.

  • http://www.facebook.com/karl.l.mitchell Karl Mitchell

    The Luxury Lover: It’s been a loooooong year, and we haven’t had a real pampering vacations since 2004.

  • http://www.facebook.com/shelly.koesterathmann Shelly Koester Athmann

    I chose the discoverer. I’ve never been to Spain and I’d love to go to Barcelona

  • http://twitter.com/Goat__Rodeo Goat Rodeo

    I’d go with the Discover package; I’ve been watching a fair amount of film recently about Paris and would love to go explore a bit around the city. Perhaps sit in some coffee shops and enjoy the sights and sounds of the city. Its certainly on the “bucket list” for the next couple years.

  • Sdgerhard13

    The Luxury Lover so I could try out a JW Marriott and spa treatments!

  • Jer

    I went with the luxury package as well – the spending money is pretty similar no matter where you go, but staying at one of the nicer JW’s would be great, AND i know the GF would love daily spa treatments. My day to day is pretty hectic, so getting away for a week with nothing to do but relax and enjoy whatever city I end up in would be amazing. Besides, the experiences in the other categories could be purchased with the $2500 spending money – IF I chose to do them. The others would be novel to try, whereas for me, the spa and getting a massage daily would really help work out some of the stress of the day to day (both physical and mental stress) =)

  • http://twitter.com/kctubbs Kerry Tubbs

    I went with the Discoverer package. I love all of those city pairs, and it’s fantastic that they include the extra points to convert to airline miles.

  • Kevin

    I chose urban explorer, much like Three Dog Night, I’ve never been to Spain.

  • http://www.leeschneider.com leeschneider

    Going for the luxury package. My wife and I are waiting for our first child to arrive (already a week past due!) and I suspect we’ll need a getaway of sorts sometime soon!

  • Jon Benson

    Went with the Discoverer. The wife and I are in love with Barcelona, and are dying to go to Paris together- the perfect opportunity. Plus, the longer trip will help us maximize our time there. Can’t wait!

  • Scottinmaine

    Luxury Lover for me. I love that it’s a JWM getaway and that could be an awful lot of fun to plan!

  • Jimpmc

    Choose the Luxury…lots of flexibility and 500,000 points.

  • Tmdprince

    I played the game and it chose Individualist, that was the right choice. I like to travel but I also like to just relax. One thing that I consider the best part of traveling is trying local cuisine!

  • Ben

    I want the weekend warrior package to have the opportunity to find the little city gems across the US and Europe on quick trips.

  • Dsnow0819

    Luxury Lover because I need some R&R!

  • Billfer

    Discoverer because of the chance to explore Europe.

  • Pattonroberta

    I chose the Discoverer because I love to explore and bouncing from point A to point B is my type of vacation — for example, last year we did Barbados and New Orleans on Spring break, which is too different than the 2/3rd of the Discoverer package

  • Cruali3223

    The Luxury Lover because my husband and I are in need of some pampering and relaxation.

  • ia9561

    Luxury Lover because I like to relax.

  • Scott

    I entered on facebook and choose the Discoverer package. More days more spending money.

  • Adam

    I would choose the Discoverer package because I have never been to Europe and I could visit 2 great cities for over a week!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dave-Suhadolc/13922924 Dave Suhadolc

    I chose the luxury lover as I would love to stay at a luxurious resort for a week during the cold Minnesota winter.

  • Jblitz

    The luxury package because apparently that is what it gave me when I answered there questions on what I like best

  • Feliica

    I would say Urban explorer because I would love to brush up on some Spanish! And of course have the opportunity to see a beautiful destination.

  • http://www.facebook.com/gxmitchell Gary Mitchell

    I entered but was not asked which package I preferred, rather I was aked to pick travel style – I picked – flight (over drive), new city (over relax), fun bar (over history)!
    Gary

  • Joseph M

    I chose the discoverer I really love Spain. One of my favorites!

  • Paul

    Spain has been on my our short list of travel destinations, we’ve never been there. I’d like to see La Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona and my wife would enjoy the beach so Discoverer would be our choice.

  • Todd

    I want the urban explorer package to visit Madrid and Toledo. I’ve passed through Madrid but never spent time there.

  • http://lifesmack.tv/ Julie

    I am the Ultimate Discoverer- send me to Barcelona :) :)

  • Gingham

    I chose Family Traveler since my children are getting old enough to get out and see the world a bit.

  • http://twitter.com/yossieuncorked Yossie Horwitz

    I choose the Luxury Package and would stay at the Renaissance Koh Samui Resort & Spa. My wife and I went to Koh Samui for our honeymoon 13 years ago with no money and would love the opportunity to return and “do it right”!

  • Tom

    Luxury Lover because I just want to sit by a fancy beach somewhere.

  • Lauren K

    I chose the luxury lover and try to go to the JW in Denver!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1336654672 David Craigo

    I chose the Discoverer package. Sounds like a wonderful getaway for the wife and I. Paris and Barcelona would be amazing along with local insight, and some spending money.

  • EMB

    I chose Urban Explorer. I love European adventures, and while I’ve been to Barcelona, I’ve never been to any other city in Spain. It should be an amazing trip!

  • http://www.facebook.com/wwchang William Chang

    Urban Explorer because Spain is one of my all-time favorite places. They have such rich history, vibrant culture, and fantastic food. Can’t wait to go back!

  • Angela

    I’d like the Ultimate Discoverer Package because Europe (Barcelona & Paris), Caribbean (Puerto Rico & Miami) or U.S. (New Orleans & Chicago) would all be great places to visit.

  • cpi

    I chose the discoverer. I love non-traditional travel such with the local navigators. I’ve always wanted to go to Europe, almost did after college graduation, but never got the opportunity.

  • Kevin R

    I am not on Facebook so can’t join the promotion, but I’d pick the Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay…not because you put it in your post, but because I go there every year and hope that Mavericks just happens to be occurring that weekend.

  • Brett Guin

    Chose the discoverer package since its 2 destinations and Barcelona is near the top of my list on places to go!

  • JW

    The urban explorer because I haven’t been to Spain yet!

  • Mike Kamman

    urban. absolutely love spain

  • http://twitter.com/Hawaiishark71 David Craigo

    I chose the Discoverer package. Sounds like a wonderful getaway for the wife and I. Paris and Barcelona would be amazing along with local insight, and some spending money.

  • Marc T

    Luxury Lover was my choice. Nothing can beat the spa.

  • DanR

    I was the Urban Explorer – I love city-hopping and Spain is one of my top destinations in Europe. Love Spanish tapas and churros!

  • David

    Discoverer package for me as my wife has never been to Europe.

  • T.D.Lee

    Luxury Lover. What city dweller doesn’t need to decompress?

  • GaryKPSU

    I would choose the Discoverer package. I love visiting new places and have not been to Paris yet. I would use the package to visit all that Paris has to offer including indulging in their cafe culture and then use the navigators to get me out of the city and see the countryside, beaches, small towns and any adventures that France has to offer such as hiking near Mt Blanc, taking a cruise down the Seine, visiting Versailles, or other towns within close driving distance.

  • http://twitter.com/cfyetter Chris Yetter

    Luxury because it opens up the redemption world-wide

  • http://twitter.com/TheDealMommy The Deal Mommy

    Discoverer. I’m desperate to get back to Paris!

  • http://twitter.com/harlanvaughn Harlan Vaughn

    I’m an urban explorer… Madrid! I’ll take it.

  • road2elysium

    Chose the Luxury package to get the highest category options.

  • Charles

    I’d stay at the JW Marriott in Hong Kong, lover package, because the food is awesome there!

  • Samara

    Luxury option all the way. Total flexibility and on vacation there is nothing better than a spa treatment!

  • Matthew

    I choose Urban Explorer because I have never been to Spain before and would love to visit in the near future!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1031307688 Dave Golden

    I chose Individualist – Because it offers a stay at a luxurious location along with spending money and points to convert for the flight. It seems to cover the best of all packages. I hope I win to celebrate our wedding anniversary! Thank you, Marriott and TPG!

  • RyanC

    I went with the Luxury Lover option as my 15 year anniversary is coming up next June. I would love to give the wife a better vacation than usual.

  • http://twitter.com/kjfxmonk kj wojciechowski

    I ended up with the “Urban Explorer” because the game chose it for me, but really, that’s exactly what I am…

  • http://twitter.com/bencathers Ben Cathers

    I chose Luxury Lover because truly.. there’s nothing better than going on vacation, being on a beach and doing absolutely nothing but relaxing!

  • Nick

    Luxury Lover – who doesn’t need to get away from it all sometimes? Not to mention soooooo many options!

  • http://www.facebook.com/bkk.dennis Bkk Dennis

    We love you TPG! This is a great contest indeed. Luxury Lover.

  • nluke

    Discoverer! I’d love to spend a week in Paris!!!

  • Sergey

    My choice is the Discoverer package, since I would love to visit Barcelona and Paris. These are amazing cities!

  • Angelayachang

    I would certainly choose Luxury Lover because my boyfriend and I have been on a long distance (when i say long, i mean REALLY long*) for almost two years, and we always meet up somewhere every two months. This package would be perfect for our trip!

    * I live in the US but my boyfriend works for the UN and last year he was in Mozambique and this year in India!!

  • SWHEEL

    Urban Explorer – I’m always up for a historically cultural discovery.

  • Jmansour

    the luxuxry lover is right up my alley

  • Fred

    Luxury Lover – Get away from everything exhausting in my everyday life.

  • Ivan

    I chose the Weekend Warrior because don’t need to be wined and dined with luxurious massages etc. I’m happy and grateful for what I have, so simple weekend getaways with free breakfast do fine for me! Thanks for running the contest and your several daily blog postings…

  • mike

    I chose Luxury Lover. My fiance and I are tired from our recent Paris trip and would love to just relax and get spa treatments. I’ve never ever had a spa treatment so that would be interesting.

  • Cindy

    Luxury Lover because nothing beats a great day at the spa

  • Uraan

    Discoverer – My wife has been to Barcelona and I to Paris – would love to share the experience together!

  • Jessica

    I was labeled as the Weekend Wanderer, but chose the Discover package since I’d be so very happy in any of those locations! I’ve never been to Paris, and would love to explore that whole area.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/APUTE4L5X5AZLEKW5XBGR7T274 Faryn

    I’d chose the Luxury Lover because I’d love the flexibility

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=642703135 Nikko Odiseos

    I chose Luxury just because it gives me the flexibility. I love Spain too Points Guy, but this seems a slam dunk – keeps my girlfriend happy too with the Spa stuff. Thanks!

  • Elyse Kelly

    I was in between the Discoverer, the Luxury, and the Urban packages but ended up picking the Discoverer because you get to go to two separate places (I’d pick the Europe destinations even though I’ve been to both, but LOVED them) AND you get more spending money to tailor the trip to exactly what you want to do.

  • Ed

    I’d choose Discoverer package for Paris. It’s a good spot to celebrate our anniversary at one of the most romantic places in the world.

  • Chad

    Weekend warrior to get a weekend away!

  • zhanwei

    Luxury Lover! In JW Marriott Rio! I want to give my partner an amazing vacation to remember~

  • Shindou

    Luxury Lover – for a romantic honeymoon getaway

  • JJ Triple J

    I selected the Discoverer package because after all it’s not the destination it’s the journey (and the people that you meet along the way) that matter! Get out and discover! Meet the locals and explore a new culture. Not to mention the Discoverer package offers the most number of nights in a destination!

  • Leslie Harvey

    I chose Urban Explorer because I’ve never managed to make it to Spain, even though I’ve gone to lots of other European countries quite a bit!

  • http://profiles.google.com/stevetraingeek Steve Boyko

    I chose the individualist vacation because I like to get out and see the world.

  • http://twitter.com/blujkts blujkts

    I chose the Luxury Lover package because my fiancée and I had to move cross country to Virginia because of new jobs. We spent all of our honeymoon/wedding money of $13K on the move, plane tickets, etc. We had major expenses for 6 weeks at a crappy hotel chain (Not Marriot). So it would be nice to win this package because I cashed in all my miles to reduce the hotel costs, essentially we have to start from scratch for our honeymoon/wedding plans. If we won we’d go to the Marriot at Ko olina in Hawaii and have a great honeymoon. She wanted to go to Tahiti, but this is just as close since JW doesnt have a property there. By the way, we love Hampton Roads area and are settling in our new condo and jobs! =)

  • emma

    The discovery package! I love traveling to new countries and really exploring the culture!

  • AC

    I also chose Luxury lover – great flexibility and as a fitness nut I’d love a consult with a nutrition and fitness expert!

  • Bo

    I will choose discoverer because I have always wanted to go to San Juan in P.R.

  • Anthony

    I would choose the discoverer. I have joined the points game almost a year ago today and have accumulated around 500K work of points. I wanted to make good use of the points and take a wonderful solo trip to Europe hitting England, Paris and Barcelona. The discoverer package would take care of just about everything I need to get there and have the best time of my life. Now, If i can find a way to make money without having to come to work everyday….ill be traveling the world in no time.

    Thanks

  • Leslie Burnside

    I chose for the luxury package, as I like to have the option to go anywere in Europe, instead of only Spain. And I like luxury by the way…

  • Mringelheim

    Weekend Warrior – I love road trips and the gas it comes with. I dont have a chance for long vacations but I can take fridays off sometimes and do long weekends.

  • Kelly

    The game told me that I’m a Luxury Lover. I’m not surprised… I love to relax at beautiful resorts in beautiful locations (especially when I can use points to stay there)!

  • James Slager

    Urban Explorer – I’ve always wanted to go to Spain!

  • Nicole Berman

    Luxury Lover- For the flexibility to go anywhere (or anywhere there is a JW Marriot) my heart desires

    Urban Explorer – I would love to go to Toledo!

    I’m an urban explorer and I can’t wait to go to Madrid

  • FenwaySteve

    I chose the Luxury Lovers package, because I could really use a long break from the real world! :-)

  • Mojo

    I chose the luxury lover for the same reasons you gave: the miles conversion.

  • Adrienne B

    I was the Discoverer. Although I think I prefer the Luxury package because the worldwide options are limitless!

  • Solstys

    Discoverer package for a Caribbean getaway in the winter!

  • frenchman619

  • Nathan

    Urban Explorer: a lot to see in those cities!

  • Jo

    Urban Explorer for me. My son and his wife travel often to Spain/Madrid and urge me to experience it. It’s at the top of my Bucket List, and perhaps through this opportunity I might just make them happy while at the same time making myself ecstatic!

  • Homertuck

    I’m an individualist! I’d love to hop on a plane and go somewhere to experience the culture!

  • oktoberfest

    I chose the Discoverer package. I have not been to Spain and the package sounds great.

  • AnnieLovesFrance

    The game told me I’m an Urban Explorer, which is true, and I’m cool with Madrid and Toledo (never been to either); I also LOVE Paris VERY much so would have chosen Discoverer on my own. It’s ALL good! :)

  • Cory Graham

    I selected the Luxury Lover package because of the minimal restrictions. That and the fact that I’d probably propose to my girlfriend somewhere romantic, such as Paris.

  • Laura C.

    I am a Discoverer because there is nothing that I love more than going places I’ve never been and experiencing new things.

  • sdmelba

    Luxury Lover…I travel for business; so when I travel for pleasure, I prefer to take my wife and relax!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jnguyen0 John Nguyen

    I chose discoverer because I’ve never been to either place and I could see myself getting really lost into the history of it all. Nothing like learning from getting lost!

  • Octavian

    Luxury – its all about the benjamins

  • Chris

    Luxury Lover for me–I like my amenities and spas!

  • JK

    Urban Explorer – chosen by the game.

  • http://indian-cowboy.blogspot.com/ Sal

    I picked Urban Explorer because I love exploring Spain!

  • Wis

    Luxury package,

    I’m a grad student , and didn’t have a vacation in the past year, I would love to treat myself with some luxury :)

  • Chad Solarz

    I went with the luxury package as well since my family life is very fast paced and we all need some downtime and really just “be”. Getting away some place exotic and not have the kids with us would mean my wife and I would finally get the honeymoon we never had!

  • Ari

    Urban explorer, but maybe I’ll reconsider to up my chances…

  • StckFigure

    I chose the Discoverer, because I want to take my wife to Paris… and Barcelona would be an excellent bonus on that trip!

  • Mike V

    Urban Explorer. Because A) it sounds like the best trip, and B) their 3 question quiz told me to!

  • Rick

    Luxury lover for sure. I travel enough on business so pleasure is what its all about!

  • http://www.facebook.com/alexhbunce Alex Bunce

    Definitely luxury lover for me! Relaxation and flexibility seem like the perfect combination!

    I qualified for the Urban Explorer package, which I think is a perfect fit for the wife and I, and we’d love to do Madrid, and maybe try and get some extra days to do Barcelona as well.

    I picked the discoverer package for Europe because it has the highest spending money, longest flights for me(thus increasing the value of the trip), never been to Barcelona but have always wanted to, and been to Paris and would love a chance to explore it even deeper, especially with a navigator.

I proposed on top of the JW Marriott balcony overlooking Copacobana beach in 2003 after it closed for the evening. I had the manager open it up for us. They even brought us Champagne.

    I chose the Urban Explorer. Spain was my first international trip. I flew TWA from DFW-STL-JFK-LIS-BCN on their brand new 757. It was odd flying the 757 across the pond but I was so excited it didn’t matter. The F/A’s were all very senior as they said it was a “break” for them to fly the small plan. Madrid is one of the last big cities in Europe I haven’t been to. Looking forward to giving you a trip report!!!

  • Steve Y

    I chose Luxury Lover since I have a trip to Bucharest coming up, and I’ve always secretly wanted to get a massage but am too cheap to pay for it.

  • Simon

    The Luxury Lover package because I worked so hard last months and I need a real break!

  • Linda J

    Discoverer for me – a) you can never get enough Paris – it’s a photographer’s paradise at any time of year; b) more generous spending $ enables me to ramp up my miles-earning spend activity; and c) Marriott points bonus to either convert to miles (*let’s fact it – once you’ve flown in the pointy end of a plane, you’re ruined for life) or use for my next vacation :)

  • Margaret

    Discoverer- the Family is temmmpting since you could have all your friends and family pick an awesome US spot for a group vacation but Discoverer gives you the 500k miles to fly them all to YOU and use the $3000 spending money to host an epic get together in your hometown…recovering afterwards with your 8 day vacation in the Caribbean sipping cocktails poolside!

  • Rachel

    Realize I didn’t confirm my entry on facebook, that’s done nor did I say why I chose the package… because it’s a short drive from my home in LA, so the pampering and relaxation could begin as quickly as possible and then I would have the points left to visit my family in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Leithompson

    Luxury Lover! I am a stay-at-home mom of 2 active boys, so I need some “me” time! :)

    I chose the Discoverer package. I think the Barcelona-Paris combination would be an ideal way to cut my European teeth.

  • Mizliz

    I’d go for the Discoverer prize…have always wanted to discover Paris and Barcelona!

  • Hope

    Had to pick the Explorer — I have never been to Spain, but have always dreamed of going–the history, culture, and architecture are amazing!

  • O. B.

    Apparently I am an “individualist”. I like food, and flying..

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=12933462 Chuck Truesdell

    I chose the Discoverer package, because I love to explore new places — well, new to me, anyway — and a 2-for-1 deal with Spain and France would be too much to pass up!

  • Jacks_mom_2004

    I chose the Family Traveler for several reasons. If you have ever traveled with my extended family, you would know that it is essential that everyone have their own space so that we don’t kill each other (just kidding…ish). We have gone the route of renting a vacation home together, but with all of the different personalities, different kids’ ages, various schedules, it has been a nightmare every year. I would love to win this package so that I could take everyone somewhere fun and enjoy some family togetherness, and also keep our relationships intact following the vacation:) While I would personally LOVE the luxury, city or other packages, I would take one for the family team if I actually had an opportunity to chose one of these. Thanks!

  • Danny

    Luxury – desperately need some R and R.

  • Sungho Yun

    I was given a chance to win the Urban Explore prize!
    I’ve been wanting to visit central and southern Spain for years!

  • Wesley

    I chose Luxury Lover because of the flexibility of choosing any JW Marriott to stay at.

  • Paul

    Urban Explorer, seems like a great way to see Europe

  • Mbw

    I chose the Urban Explorer. Going to different cities is my thing. Went around the world back in 1986 doing just that.

  • Suraj

    I chose the Individualist, cause I like to go my own way!

  • Trevor

    I chose the luxury because I’ve had some of the most relaxing days of my life at the JW Marriott Khao Lak (just north or Phuket in Thailand), and would love to experience another JW Marriott in Asia.

  • http://twitter.com/beth_odonnell Beth ODonnell

    I chose the Discoverer because any chance I get to go to Paris I am going,

  • Sueb

    I chose the Luxury because it sounds absolutely awesome.

  • Bonojoe

    I would certainly choose the Discoverer package because I would truly be in heaven if I could go tear up Barcelona and Paris with my girlfriend Natalia. We are both art loving romantics and this package would be a dream come true! Thanks Points Guy for the chance to win some great Marriott Points!!

  • Sobrien82

    Luxury lover all the way. I really need some stress relief and me time. the job situation has been brutal lately

  • http://twitter.com/adelantando A. Sobotka

    Urban Explorer! I dream of walking the cobblestone streets of Toledo.

  • DJ

    Luxury Lover for me. This would work out great as my wife and I just had our first child. She definitely deserves a whole lot of pampering.

  • MW

    I selected the luxury lover prize, with the hope to use the points for stays at the J.W.’s in London and Cannes. (If Marriott would allow, I’d also like to use some of the remaining Marriott points at the new AC Renaissance Marriott in Barcelona. It looks great and it’s in a perfect location.)

  • http://twitter.com/wanderinghome Elijah Nouvelage

    I chose the Urban Explorer because a) I love Spain and b) the odds will be better than the Luxury prize- which most people will choose. : )

  • Angela

    Discoverer since I love Paris

  • PointsAddict

    Urban Explorer – because I’ve always wanted to go to Spain!

  • Twsaving

    Weekend Warrior – because I have to work during the week!

  • Dinaevans

    I chose the Luxury Lover package. My last luxury vacation was in Hawaii where I broke my foot on the second day. I’d love a do over.

  • Lisa M.

    Funny, I had a dream last night I was standing under the Eiffel Tower and then woke up before I got to the top…(I’ve never been, by the way, but it’s on my bucket list along with Spain)… and then I see this contest and yours and think, who knows. It could happen, right? So I answer the questions and guess where they want to send me? Yup, Discoverer Package! Paris & Barcelona here I come, Cheers!

  • ST

    Discoverer b/c I love Paris

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tim-Smith/1206892711 Tim Smith

    Urban Explorer – I love seeing new countries.

  • Kelly D.

    Discoverer all the way! Love Paris & Barcelona!

  • http://twitter.com/zekenix Zeke Kersey

    I went through their presentation and it resulted in “discoverer” so I chose the Discoverer package. I love Barcelona and have friends there so it would be nice to visit and Paris is always fund.

  • BrianP

    We love Europe, lived there for over 7 years; we like to go back as often as possible and this is one of those opportunities

  • Jimmy

    Luxury Lover because I love splurging at the JW Marriott every now and then

  • Jason

    Luxury lover – I love relaxing at the pool and putting all of my cares aside.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004020864053 Siva Kuppili

    Discoverer! Love Europe (Barcelona & Paris)

  • Kristy

    I chose the Discoverer package because the description was too true…”You become a local wherever you travel. Your ideal trip includes getting out of your hotel room and immersing yourself in the cuisine, music and art of the local culture.” I have been aching to go to Paris and would adore another trip to Barcelona. How could you pass such an opportunity by?

  • Steve

    I would choose the luxury lover because my wife and I are looking to take our first trip together since having our son last summer. We were already looking at the JW Marriott in Phoenix as we both wanted to get pampered and get spa treatments every day. The JW Marriott In Rio would be great as we were there in 2009, but a little too far away from our son at this point. Thanks

  • Jonathan Osborn

    Discoverer by far is the best in my opinion. I’ve already got enough sky pesos to fly to Europe so that’s just more hotel points in the bank.

  • Maher

    Luxury Lover, love the JW Marriott and spa treatment,love Europe.

  • Guest

    I chose the Urban Explorer because I did a Madrid airline run and was only there for about 12 hours. The airport was AWESOME, I’ll bet the city is too

  • lucy

    Luxury lover, i like the JW and i need a relaxing trip

  • Julia

    Discoverer, i love Barcelona and Paris

  • Ellen

    luxury lover, it,ll be my first stay at the JW Mariott , and ill go for Europe

  • Nguyen

    I would like the Luxury Lover package since we love the daily spa treatments and spend time at the pool. Thanks.

  • JD

    I went with Discoverer because it’s the most suited for me to go somewhere new.

  • Jason A

    I chose the luxury lover because I love spas. :)

  • Kelly Hansen

    I chose the weekend warrior. I’m a full time employee and part-time student so it’s difficult to plan large trips. The weekend warrior allows me to get away when it’s most convenient for me in between my class schedule.

  • Luxury Package

    I choose the luxury package … because I love luxurious holidays

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=519243822 Glenn Connery

    Looks like I’m a Luxury Lover. I like to take time to get away from it all and indulge. Beach, pool, heat, serious drinking, spa, more heat. You know the drill.

  • kmh63

  • davina

    call me stressed, so i choose the luxury pakcage

  • Bea

    I chose Discoverer because I haven’t been to Paris as an adult….I can’t wait.

  • Adam

    I chose Urban Explorer because I used to live in Spain and my wife has never been.

  • Breazey9

    I chose the Luxury package, because I love to travel internationally, but I don’t want to be bound by the specific cities the other packages include. With the Luxury package, I could go anywhere in the world that has a JW marriott! :)

  • andrew

    the luxury lover, definitely. options to go pretty much anywhere with a JW marriott, plus daily spa treatments? you can’t go wrong

  • macddaddy

    Luxury Lover for sure!

  • Jeremy h

    After answering the questions it said I’m a Luxury Lover. I was debating between that and the Discoverer. Really hard choice

  • brenda2121

    I chose Discoverer, because I would love to visit Barcelona.

  • Leslie

    Individualist package since I like to explore the local food/culture.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jeremy.khoo Jeremy Khoo

    Explorer. Exploring some place with a significant other? what could be better? delving even deeper into Paris and Barcelone, would be awesome.

  • Jay

    I choose the Luxury Lover for my wife for our anniversary!

  • Sricolts

    I chose Urban Explorer package because want to go Spain and experience madrid along with museum visit

  • rgsanchez12

    I chose the Luxury package, as my wife is expecting our second child in March and this would be a wonderful way to get a much needed, relaxing getaway in before the baby comes. The daily spa treatments will be pretty great too.

  • Tara

    I would chose Luxury Lover for my lover who deserves from luxury ;)

  • Michaelpang

    I am in for Luxury Lover because my lover

  • Megan Z.

    I chose the Urban Explorer package. Six nights in Madrid and Toledo. Yes, please.

  • MauritiusHoneymoon!

    WOW so many responses! I would choose:

    Discoverer
    Package includes:
    8 day / 7 night stay for winner + guest at both hotels in one of the following locations – Europe (Barcelona & Paris), Caribbean (Puerto Rico & Miami) or U.S. (New Orleans & Chicago)
    500,000 Reward points to convert to airline miles
    Personalized Discovery Experience curated by local Renaissance Navigators
    $3,000 in spending money

    I have a Honeymoon to plan and this is what we are looking for! I hope TPG gets back to me on my email as well I need a strategy to get free flights to Mauritius!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=8103857 David Song

    I chose Urban Explorer. I love to see the sights from railroads and small airplanes. Going backpacking around the world is a dream of mine and I hope to do that with a sabbatical from work. The one thing I hope to do is eat amazing tapas in Madrid! I love the Jamon from Spain. If I could I would eat black footed pig from Iberia every single day!!!

  • nav

    Luxury Lover, because there’s nothing quite like spending a vacation being pampered!

  • Ben

    I chose Luxury Lover because I would love to treat my wife with a fabulous trip.

  • Stellablueky

    I chose the Discoverer package (apparantly like most of your readers!)
    Really hope to win – could use the points for our honeymoon!
    Stellaky

  • BOShappyflyer

    I chose the weekend warrior package because I like to travel to places for short trips over the weekend. And I save my vacation days for long trips. :)

  • Tim Howell

    I chose luxury. A pampered vacation sounds pretty nice right now!

  • Brandon

    I would choose the Luxury Package. I am currenty planning my honeymoon to Thailand and I feel bad that I am taking my future bride to “middle of the road hotels” instead of somewhere like the JW Marriott. Maybe if I win I can make it up to her!

  • John

    I chose the Luxury Lover package because I’ve been spoiled with nice things thanks for smart point use and loyalty program status. I also haven’t experienced a JW Marriott yet and have heard great things.

  • http://discovertraveldream.com/ Lydia Powell

    I played the game and it said I’d love the Individualist package but I think I’d prefer the Discoverer trip! I would definitely choose the Barcelona/Paris option as I’ve never been to either of those countries and would love to go.

  • http://twitter.com/ThinkJeffThink Jeff Reynolds

    I chose Discover because me, my wife and two young kids are taking an around the world trip (http://wwww.kidsmeetworld.com). Our goal is to instill a love of travel and a respect for other cultures — on a budget. Boy, would that many miles help. :)

  • JPwharton

    Luxury Lover is the package I would choose because I feel it is the best value. I would use the package for the new JW in Costa Rica for my girlfriend and I. We are both about to attend Med school and I feel she deserves a good trip somewhere nice. The 500k points I would transfer to get us both down there and enjoy life before work takes over!

  • http://twitter.com/reykjeff Jeff Reyk

    Luxury lover because you get 500k miles to convert and a jw stay.

  • Anna Margaret Binder

    I was not surprised when I came out “Urban Explorer.” Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, marooned in the hills of Pennsylvania, I lead my family to city vacations at every opportunity. I was excited when I saw the prize was Madrid as that’s where our first and best exchange student of fifteen years ago lives. She is now a physician and married to a chef. Would love to visit her!

  • Fernando Hun

    I choose the Luxury Lover because it gives me the freedom to stay anywhere around the world in one of the best hotel brands anywhere on earth.

  • MightyMan908

    I came up as an Individualist. It chose it for me going through their quick game but I would agree with the destination choice. NM seems like a great place for my personality type. You can relax while enjoying awesome culture and food. Plus you are right there close to the mountains where you can go for a few days of hiking. Or in the winter there is always some good skiing not too far off!

  • pepper4

    Individualist package cause it sounded like fun!

  • Dan

    I chose the Luxury Lover because 6 spa treatments would hit the spot.

  • Kristy

    Luxury Lover – There’s nothing better than some me time in luxury for this Mom of two boys ages 4 and 5.

  • the MARRIOTT LUXURY LOVER

    Luxury Lover for me! I’ve lived in Madrd and Miami, so I’d choose a location that I haven’t spent time in before. My best friend will be moving to Spain this year and getting married, and I’ll need a place to stay when I get there. As a full time student again, winning a DREAM VACATION may be the only opportunity I get to attend!!

  • Ela

    Discoverer is my choice. I would like to win vacation in Paris and be able to visit Loire Valley Castles.

  • Henkelri

    Well, the game told me I was an Urban Discoverer – which I absolutely am! I am the one who goes and goes on vacation and loves to soak it all in. For that reason, I switched from what it chose for me (the Urban Discoverer) and instead selected the Individualist…5 days in New Mexico. Why? There is an art/culture experience as part of the reward so that would appeal to my Discoverer side – but… I think it would actually force me to relax a bit and take a different sort of vacation!!

  • Eli104

    Apparently I hit the Luxury Lover package. I guess I travel enough to want to just lay back sometimes, but in a place that provides comfort and new views to the world. Would love to spend it somewhere warm, maybe in February… Or someplace Neutral any time of the year!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000525698772 James Helm

    Discoverer package – because I love to discover new places to eat. Miami and Puerto Rico would be great places to visit and partake of the local flavers.

  • Pa19079

    Urban Explorer, I am a big metro person.

  • Ryan S

    Individualist. I love NM, the trip length is perfect, and the hotel looks great!

  • Chris Wary

    I entered the facebook promo and chose the urban explorer package because that’s what the game chose for me. And I’ve been to Barcelona but not to Madrid or Toledo yet. Barely beat out the discoverer package.

  • citi

    I choose Urban Explorer because I have many big cities to visit around the world

  • Jessica H

    I chose the Urban Explorer package because I love wandering new cities!

  • Xsj1112

    Weekend Warrior, I need a weekend away from work.

  • Drexel2004

    Discoverer, I’d love to go to Spain or the Carribeans…

  • Jonathan Hsieh

    Luxury Lover! Because even though I was an “Individualist” a happy wife is a happy life….and she’ll love the pampering spas =).

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=701247896 Toko Mu

    Weekend Warrior-there are so many things to see in USA and Canada

  • Larry

    I choose the “Luxury Lover” as my wife and I would love to go back to Waikiki for some badly needed r & r!! With my company up for sale and the future uncertain, you only go around once!

  • Kelly

    I chose the Discoverer – France and Spain would be amazing!!!!

  • Steve H.

    I’ve been waiting for this contest! I really need to win the luxury lover. I have been saving points for several years thru Marriott rewards for a five night vacation for my wife and I. Family vacations over the years have taken priority and are fun but my wife and I havent had any time for ourselves in 10 years. I need 120 K for 5 nights at La Concha in San Juan PR and have accrued 70K. 50K more completes my marriott dream tracker. I would greatly appreciate the gift as this trip is the whole reason I found your site.

  • Huevosman

    I picked out the Discover package because I have never been able to visit Europe and I think this would be a great opportunity to do so!

  • Jason

    Urban Explorer. Went to Spain last year and had a blast – went to Barcelona, Madrid, and Malaga!

  • john

    Discoverer for Paris and Barcelona.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/3KJMFTU4B6LSGIONLW6OAZ2WDA JoshuaS

    Urban explorer- love Toledo.

  • GVMelissa

    Great giveaway! I chose the Urban Explorer package. I love Spain (spent 3 months there in 2010/2011) and would love to go back. The other package that featured Spain also included Paris and I’m kind of so-so on Paris (weird, I know!). So this is the best package for me!! Thanks!

  • ART S.

    Urban Explorer. The choices to get that package fit my bill: hop on a plane, get that passport stamped, and wander the streets. Madrid is a beautiful city and would love to walk the streets again. Last time I was there was on a backpacking trip, where I spent a day in The Prado. I have never been to Toledo, so that would be a nice bonus. Winning this would be better than winning the Powerball!

  • allen kenigsberg

    I would choose the Luxury Lover because my wife and I work very hard full-time and we have not had time for oursleves in a long long time. We have three precious children ages 5 years, 3 years and 6 months old who we love dearly however, it would be nice to enjoy some alone, stress-free time for ourselves away from all the chaos and rekindle our romance.

  • shermanxia

    I chose Discoverer as I am one. :)

  • Harold

  • elcharros

    Urban Explorer – Spain is tops on my list of places to visit. My GF lived in Madrid for a year and so I’d love to go there with her and have her show me around.

  • http://www.facebook.com/shawnlauzon Shawn Lauzon

    I chose Discoverer, because I love to experience different cultures and immerse myself in the beautiful diversity in the world!

    Luxury for sure…love to get pampered and the wife would approve as well!

    Individualist…I guess I should have flown!! Fun!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jared.na.7 Jared NA

    I chose the luxury package since I enjoy a little pampering every now and then.

  • Barb

    I chose the Discoverer since I love Paris and Barcelona and would love to return to spend more time exploring those amazing cities.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lane.lockhart Lane Lockhart

    It was a toss-up between Luxury or Discoverer, but I chose Discoverer due to the additional nights and the fact that I’ve always wanted to visit Barcelona and make it back to Paris!

  • Jac W

    I chose the the Discoverer package. I, like you, love Madrid but I have been there once before. Since I have never been to Barcelona, I would love to discover what it is all about. My husband loves Paris. It would be a phenomenal trip!

  • Gina

    Discoverer Package for me!!! Having spent almost 10 years in Asia now I am ready to vacation somewhere else and Barcelona sounds the perfect place. I return to the US 3 or 4 times a year but those trips are always so hectic and full of obligation. A different continent is definitely the place for me to get away and relax!

  • Tony

    I chose luxury because nothing is more relaxing than being in bliss away from home. If I’m going to travel, it’s go big or go home!

  • Vini

    I chose Discoverer, because I plan to have a vacation at Caribbean!

  • Jane S.

    I would love to win the Urban Explorer having never been to Spain before.

  • Dennis ***

    Since I haven’t been to Madrid & Toledo yet, I’d like to do the Urban Explorer. That would be a perfect trip to Spain!

  • Adam D

    I’d choose urban explorer, I’ve never been to Spain.

  • Cgriffin

    Luxury liver for sure….JW Marriott in Cancun!

  • Gpks00

    Urban Explorer. It would be great to goto Spain again.

  • Ahmed

    Urban Explorer. I went to Barcelona, but never Madrid–would love to see a bullfight.

  • Brian Mancuso

    I’d choose the Luxury package and head to the JW Marriott in Cancun.

  • magdalen33

    I chose the Discoverer package – well, who doesn’t want to discover something? I always want to check out something new….

  • Audreyu8

    I chose the Luxury Lover package and will use it at JW Marriott Hong Kong! :) We go to Hong Kong all the time as we are working in Guangzhou. Hotels are really expensive in HK so this will be a real treat for us!

  • Heather :)

    I chose the Urban Explorer package. I like to get new stamps in my passport. :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dominick-Dal-Santo/100000001332229 Dominick Dal Santo

    I chose the Discoverer package because I mainly think it would be a perfect fit for our upcoming honeymoon.

    Me and my wife-to-be are in the process of planning our wedding(s) and honeymoon. Since I am from Chicago, and she is from Buenos Aires, we have a lot of complication to work through to get it all done. With this package we would be able to have a beautiful honeymoon, one that we might not get otherwise due to our limited finances (we both are full time volunteer ministers). This package would let us either, go to my hometown Chicago to see friends and family who can’t make it to our wedding here in BA, or to Barcelona where Gilda has family and many friends (she lived there briefly and hold Spanish citizenship) or to the Caribbean where we could finally fulfill one of our shared dreams and learn to SCUBA dive.

    While I have a few frequent flyer miles saved up, I do not really have the cash or the points for the hotel stays. This package would give us the most help where we need it the most.

  • Mark W

    Played the game and given the Urban Explorer. It reminded me of my trip to Italy and it is awesome traveling within the country. I may stretch and extend the stay to other Spanish cities!

  • Tony

    I picked the Discoverer trip. I want to take my daughter to Europe and this would be a great head start.

  • Paul Berg

    Definitely the Discoverer! Vamos a explorar Espana!

  • Julian

    Discoverer! A full week in Barcelona sounds awesome!

  • Chrisb97

    Luxury Lover, Honeymoon trip!

  • Lee Ann Metivier

    It was the Discoverer Package for me. It was a tough choice between that and the Luxury Lover, but since I haven’t been to Europe yet, I had to go with the Discoverer.

  • http://twitter.com/tihm Tim Harvey

    I went with the Lover’s package! Time away in a spa with my lovely lady sounds amazing. Spending a month in CA for a new jobs with the whole family was great, but it’s time for some R&R by ourselves!

  • Travis

    i chose luxury lover because i like the flexibilty to go whereever i want. i’m over in China now and that allows me to fly and stay somewhere for free.

    Urban explorer – see new places with a balance of relaxing and exploring!!

  • Jane Chu

    Luxury Lover! Because I’m a luxury lover! :D What better way to get away and enter into a state of bliss for 5 nights! I’d probably go to one of the JW Marriotts in Thailand — Thai massages, yummy food and peaceful workouts, what better way to enjoy the luxury, and have your dollar go far. :D

  • Qianrui Ren

  • Harvey Brian S

    Luxury Lover,
    gotta be pampered

  • Lisa Hughes

    Luxury Lover….because my current day to day luxuries of laundry, biking to the store, and doing dishes leaves a little bit to be desired.

  • llador

    It’s the DISCOVERER for me. I would love to take mom (her birthday is bastile day). She has always wanted to visit Paris and has never had the opportunity. I’m churning cards started this year (thanks TPG for your recs got 70k on marriott) to get point her there 2013.

    Luxury Lover – we have two kids and it’s time for a getaway!

    I choose the discover package. me and my wife would love time to explore paris and barcelona

    I chose the Luxury Lover package because of it’s flexibility and the spa treatments. :-)

  • David

    I would do the luxury lover, because I work 80 hour work weeks and could use some pampering.

  • http://www.clarkecomputer.com/ Charles Clarke

    Discoverer for the personalized experience and the cash.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PU7E3XECYLTY5ARUTBQ3YZHTBM Mike

    Thanks for the offer. I picked the Luxury Lover. I’m getting married in less than 6 months and it’d be great to get the honeymoon paid for since it’s something I’ve been stressing about (wedding’s are expensive!) …

  • Rickehman

    The wife wants the Luxury Lover but for me I’ll take the Discoverer package.

  • Lorry

    I would love to have the Individualist. That would be a trip of a lifetime.

  • Matt

    Discoverer package because I have always wanted to go to Europe (my wife would rather Luxury Lover for the spa treatments lol)

  • JadaSPW

    I chose the weekend warrior because I love to travel the country and create the best experience possible over the course of one weekend. I love it so much I started a company called Sports Power Weekends to plan trips to see sporting events and make the most of a city over one unforgettable weekend experience!

  • Rene

    I chose the Discover Package since my wife and I still have so many cities on our bucket list…

  • Steve S.

    Discover packages, see you in Spain!

  • Raymond Ng

    It’s Urban Explorer for me – I love new places, new faces! – Raymond

  • Jblessed35

    I would love the Luxury Lover. I work for a non-profit and I am constantly doing for others inside of work and out. I love it, don’t get me wrong, but I dream of being able to take a trip like this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=33900625 Chris Hildreth

    Luxury package. My wife and I would love to use these points to return to Maui (site of honeymoon) for a nice break.

  • Dana Walker

    Luxury – JW Marriott >Worldwide< , 500,000 reward points to move to miles, and 2,500.00 for spending money. We could have a nice gettaway somewhere with that!!

  • Ben

    Discoverer Package – I love Paris, and would love to go back there!

  • Pranay Patel

    Luxury lover for me – couldn’t pass up the free points and 5 night stay anywhere

  • Al

    I’d choose the Urban Explorer package. Went to Toledo for a day trip two years ago and loved the city architecture. This is great opportunity for me to go back and enjoy at a more leisurely pace.

  • Jared

    A full week get away, spa treatments, and a little spending cash on the side? Definitely the Luxury Lover for me!

  • KJM

    Luxury. Daily spa treatment can’t be beaten.

  • Priyanka Mehrotra

    I chose Discoverer because I would love to travel to Paris with the love of my life :)

  • gabble

    Urban Explorer. Because I chickened out on a Madrid excursion the last time I was in Europe. And so I’ll finally get to witness Guernica firsthand.

  • Maureen Moore

    I’m an Urban Adventurer, although I was tempted by the Luxury Lover package.

  • Mia

    Luxury Lover; JW Marriott Bangkok; spa time!

  • Goodmane

    I chose Discover because I would love to go to Paris with my wife!!!

  • Kathy

    I would chose Luxury Lover package. JW Hong Kong looks nice!

  • KYLE

    I chose the Urban Explorer package. Who wants to be bored on a beach! I wanna see the world baby!

  • Nikdro

    Luxury Lover! I need a relaxing getaway

  • saldiccio

    Discoverer, because I’ve never been to Barcelona, and my girlfriend has never been out of the US!

  • Katherine

    I chose the Luxury Lover package – that way, I can determine where I want to go.

  • Nicholas Lathrop

    Without a doubt, the Family Traveler package to help offset the cost of our Wedding for travelers. We live in Tampa and getting married in Ohio.
    -10 rooms for 3 nights over memorial day weekend would be perfect for our traveling friends and family.
    - $300 gift card to stock your in-room fridge would be great for late-night “rehab” drinks after the festivities.
    - 10 Snapfish® photo books would help offset Wedding Photography costs.
    -$500 gas card would pay for my gas as I am driving up (solo), pulling a uHaul as most of the stuff for the wedding is here in Tampa.
    - $3,000 in spending money would help pay for a day of Diving in the Great Barrier Reef during our Honeymoon :).

    Pick me Pick me!

  • dan

    Luxury – JW Marriott >Worldwide< , 500,000 reward points to move to miles, and 2,500.00 for spending money. man that would be sweet and my wife would love it

  • Dale

    I chose the discoverer package because I love the idea of going to Barcelona and Paris.

  • Supervike68

    I chose the Luxury package as my wife and I have had a rough year and could use some pampering!

  • MCO-Bound

    I’ll definitely choose Discoverer because the miles will allow me to fly to Barcelona and Paris, and then use the hotel stays to fully enjoy the vacation

  • Renee

    I picked the weekend warrior. There are a lot Places close to us that we want to explore and we are saving our vacation days right now for our trip to the Congo.

  • Photo00001

    “I just played Marriott Rewards’ “What’s your Travel Type?” game and found out that I am an Urban Explorer! ”
    However I must admit I am getting tired of flying and might have gone for a Luxury package as well.

  • Celeste Cole

    I picked Discoverer because I couldn’t resist getting to visit two places at once. But Luxury sure did look good!

  • Jay

    The Discoverer package is my preferred choice, as I value international travel over anything else. Not having kids yet also puts me in position to explore new cities with plenty of history and culture without hassle. I’ve never been to Barcelona before, but have visited Madrid so that knocks out the Urban Explorer package for me.

  • EllisAbroad

    I’d take the Luxury Lover because most of my recent travels have been move, move, move… Time to relax!

  • Rob Ontell

    Luxury Lovers because I want to have the freedom to choose my destination.

  • Tracy

    The Individualist package is what I chose this time around. I’ve been to Albuquerque and Santa Fe, but never Taos. There are so many places here in the U.S. that I think get missed for exploration!

  • Catherine

    I chose the Luxury Lover package because by boyfriend and I have been dating for three years and have yet to be able to take a vacation due to our crazy schedules- it would be nice to take a few days together and recharge :)

  • Christy Lottie

    I entered the Marriott’s Facebook contest and I chose the Luxury Lover package for the following reasons:

    -I love a good spa day
    -relaxing at a beach is pure heaven
    -I would love a vacation with my hubby

  • Heather Armstrong

    Without a doubt, the Discoverer package. I’ve never been to Barcelona or Paris!

  • http://profiles.google.com/kwugirl Katherine Wu

    I chose the Urban Explorer package since I’ve never spent much time in Spain before and it seems like the best package to really get to know a couple new locations in-depth. I considered the Discoverer package too but it seemed like you’d have to make your own way between the two cities whereas the Urban Explorer included round trip train passes between Madrid and Toledo.

  • Vike80

    Individualist, since I love new cities.

  • http://www.bullcitystudio.com/ Valerie G

    I just selected the “Individualist” vacation. I’ve always wanted to visit the southwest!

  • http://www.facebook.com/brwnbooger Mitesh Amin

    Luxury hands down because you get the most flexibility with any JW Marriott in the world.

    After getting all excited about the 4-mile United ticket to Hong Kong mess… I still have a burning desire to go. With it being super expensive there 2500 bucks will help cover a few meals ;) And I can only dream of the spas at JW Marriott in Hong Kong!

  • Rechavia

    For sure the Luxury Package-Travel, Spa and a chance to get some advice from a nutritionist while traveling and relaxing. Who could ask for anything more?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1214000895 Christina Wells

    Definitely the Urban Explorer – planning fantasy trips to Europe is my survival strategy for getting through the work week !

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1214000895 Christina Wells

    Definitely the Urban Explorer – planning fantasy trips to Europe is my survival strategy for getting through the work week !

  • StevenRothberg

    Just entered as an Urban Explorer. Two of my favorite things are traveling and history so Marriott wisely matched up the two.

  • Trung

    I chose the Discover package. I just returned from a Europe trip – didn’t spend as long as I wanted in Paris and have not yet visited Barcelona!

  • Jim

    I chose Family Traveler package because it’s been many many years since my parents and my brothers and I have spent any time together.

  • Zahn

    Well, it was a tough choice between the Discoverer and Urban Explorer package, but this time I entered to win the Discoverer package; ultimately, I’d be ok with either one :).

  • lsdourte

    Hi! I chose the Urban Explorer. Learning about Madrid and the fortress city of Toledo would be a fantastic history lesson! I think I would then take a train to Tarifa then the ferry over to Tangiers, then a train to Marrakech. What an exciting adventure!!! Thank you so much for the great information that you provide,

  • jacob c.

    I chose the luxury lover package. Being a student and living on a tight budget, I could realy enjoy he pampering for a few days staing at a 5 star hotel and travelling in a premium cabin. It would be an amazing vacation and a nice break from the stress of the classroom.

  • Btoll

    I went with discovery. Will revisit cities i love.

  • Joanne Jenkins

    I picked the family traveler – and if I won it, I would take my Girl Scout troop on a great trip to New York City!

  • CR

    Urban Explorer for sure. I visited Madrid with family as a child and absolutely adored the city and its people. Don remember many of the sites and I hear great things about Toledo. Sounds perfect!

  • Bill M

    I chose the discoverer package. 500,000 points would be great!!!

  • Joseph Lee

    I’d definitely choose the Individualist and stay at El Monte Sagrado!!

  • Nate Urry

    My wife and I would love the luxury lover package

  • TLAJR

    I’d love to be a Luxury Lover at the JW Marriott in Seoul!

  • Saira

    I chose the Individualist. There’s nothing like exploring the art scene and trying the local cuisine to give you an understanding of the culture and people. And what do you need once the day is complete? why, relaxing at the spa ofcourse!

  • Darren Z

    Chose the Discoverer Package – Any of the three combo cities would be ideal and the 500,000 points would come in handy!

  • http://intrepidmotion.com/ Marvin @ intrepidmotion

    Discoverer! Would love to see both Barcelona and Paris both of which I’ve never been! Two cities for one prize = awesome value, especially with the included tour guide experience. Add in half a million points and the highest cash award (I’m good at stretching $), that makes this a slam dunk!

  • Jon Welch

    Discover package all the way!!!!!! Barcelona and Paris have my name written all over it!!!!

  • Giovanna

    I entered the contest and chose the Family Traveler – even though I don’t have a large family. Why?
    This seemed to be the best value for the contest and actually had the highest ARV. My husband and I travel with a group of friends to play competitive card games and there are often tournaments in mid-sized towns where we always stay in a Marriott. I pay for all the hotels using either points, free nights, or my VISA Marriott Premier card and everyone chips in for what the hotel would have cost.

    With 10 rooms for 3 nights, we’d have our next 5 trips covered (including one that we’re taking Memorial Day weekend and already have a reservation at the Residence Inn, Minneapolis). $300 to “stock the fridge” would be used well to hydrate us and feed us between tournament play. The $500 gas card would cover a few road trips, and $3,000 would cover all the taxes of the prize (hopefully)!.

    The real question is if I win the sweepstakes, will these stays count towards my elite night stay count? :)

  • http://twitter.com/dmgolfer Phil Burns

    I chose the family traveler package..My daughter is quickly approaching 8 years old and I started her on the travel bug a year and half ago with a cruise then New York for her 7th bday during Thanksgiving week. This package is best suited for our little family and for bringing my mom along as well. Exposing my daughter to different cities and experiences is one of the greatest joys of being a father..

    Thanks always for all the great trips and another great promotion.

  • Marlene K.

    I’m an Urban Explorer. I love visiting large cities, seeing historical sites and sampling the local color!

  • Thinh Pham

    I’d pick the Discoverer package. I’ve never been to Europe or the Caribbean and the wife is dying to visit those places.

  • http://twitter.com/timharrington timharrington

    I chose the Luxury Lover package due to the flexibility of travelling anywhere there is a JW Marriott.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=3303998 Duke Chao

    Urban Explorer!

    I’ve never been to Europe and I can’t imagine a better city than Madrid to start, so this prize was an easy choice for me!

  • Josh W

    As a new dad, I’m feeling pressure to say Family Traveler, but my son will just have to come with us to the Carribean with the Discoverer package.

  • Joe

    I chose Luxury Lover. I tend to travel all over and run around cities. Might be nice to relax at the hotel!

  • betsy

    The Luxury Lover is me! We just had our 4th girl two months ago and we are overdue for a vacation by ourselves. Having had 4 girls in the past 6 years, the spa treatment, nutrition stuff, and exercise trainer would be awesome! Where would be go? ANYWHERE!

  • R Gage

    Family traveler

  • Dorron Lemesh

    I chose Discoverer as I love to travel and learn about new places

  • DSam

    I choose Luxury Lover due the fact that “Private consultation with resident nutritionist & fitness expert”, which I couldn’t afford.

    Package includes:

    6 day / 5 night stay at any JW Marriott worldwide for winner + guest
    500,000 Rewards points to convert to airline miles
    Daily spa treatments
    Private consultation with resident nutritionist & fitness expert
    $2,500 in spending money

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401545 Ben Crosbie

    Jamon!! I chose the Urban Explorer because while I’ve yet to visit Spain, I’m obsessed with the exquisite flavor of the black footed Iberico pigs, fed on a diet of acorns and wild berries – delicious! As Homer Simpson would say “right Lisa, some wonderful, magical animal!” My dream is to frolic with the young boar, and then feast on their tasty carcasses.

  • Darlene

    I chose Luxury Lover for 5 nights at the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa. I would use this as part of a longer visit to Thailand and Asia.

  • sdmelba

    My comment from yesterday seems to have disappeared (???)

    I selected Luxury Lover because I travel for business and when I travel for pleasure I like to bring my wife and just relax!!

  • Jennifer

    I chose the Family, as we havent been on a family vacation in 16 years.

  • Chanel C.

    Luxury Lover: My boyfriend and I just got back together after a brief separation and it would be wonderful to have a package where we could enjoy the company of each other outside of the big city

  • Danielle

    I wanted the urban explorer package and that’s what the game selected! I’ve never been to Spain but have dreamed about visiting Toledo. The architecture, history, all of it- I want to experience it.

  • Nic Myers

    I chose Luxury Lover as it offers the most flexibility. As I generally don’t know which country I will be in a month in advance, being able to show up and have a great accommodation options available are always a plus. Also, showing up after long flights and layovers and having spa options waiting for me can’t be beat.

  • Ben

    I am for sure an Urban Explorer…and the What’s Your Travel Type quiz proved it. You will catch me jet setting off on a plane in a heartbeat and making sure that my passport is stamped every step od the way! Nothing like exploring the world and different cultures – and the advent or air travel has changed how easily this can be done. Now if I only had a hotel to stay in for free…hmmmmm.

  • Val

    I chose Urban Explorer because I love exploring other cultures!

  • Samuel

    Luxury Lover definitely! The Spa/500k miles is very compelling

  • KP

    I chose the Urban Explorer, hoping that it’ll help my dearest and I discover the idea of being one and living together, instead of constantly flying back and forth seeing each other. A trip like this could seal the day and one of us will up quitting work and find work where the other lives! A trip like this could really make wishes and dreams come true. I just feel that we are so busy that if we sync in another cultural it will help us a lot! The thought of just being closer, ahhhh!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=7400091 Andrew Jones

    Discoverer all the way! Can’t beat 8 days/7 nights in Paris.

  • http://twitter.com/katiekonrath Katie Konrath

    I chose the Urban Explorer. I’ve been to Madrid before, but only briefly. I’d love to have a chance to explore it in depth and the Classical languages major in me cries out for a history lesson.

  • Stan

    I chose Discoverer because I would like to explorer new places :)

  • Emily

    Luxury Lover all the way! It would be such a treat to be able to take my mom for a relaxing and rejuvenating mother/daughter trip in Phuket, Thailand.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kenny-Huang/501757084 Kenny Huang

    I entered the Urban Explorer Package. Its always fun to travel oversea! Especially with the potential to convert points into miles can make a trip even more interesting than ever!

  • connie

    Luxury Lover package because of it’s flexibility

  • Eric

    luxury lover package for sure

  • Tom R

    Luxury Lover without a doubt! Love the option to choose where…..

  • AC

    Luxury Lover package because of it’s flexibility. It also will be a treat to take my partner with me for our second honeymoon.

  • MarckusN

    I choose the Luxury Lover. I know that I will be walking a lot in wherever I choose to travel abroad. Daily spa treatments will be welcome, especially to my feet. A nice foot massage to end the day is pure bliss. Plus the consultation with the nutritionist and fitness expert doesn’t hurt either. Keep the body healthy to travel more!

  • James Kilton

    “I chose the luxury lover package because I’m planning to travel internationally in the next year and want the freedom to stay anywhere in the world!”

  • Claire J

    I’m an Urban Explorer. Give me Madrid anyday over lounging poolside. Tapas, Spanish Wine and Great Music – perfect vacation….and with those 500,000 airline miles I’ll fly first class to another great Latin country…maybe Argentina or maybe Ecuador, or even Peru. It would be a difficult choice.

  • Dennybob

    I am truly an urban explorer. Love Madrid and look forward to seeing Toledo.

  • David

    Luxury Lover– I like the flexibility to decide where to go worldwide.

  • jtm1

    Urban Explorer – cannot wait to see Madrid again; I bet things have changed in 15 years!!

  • April

    I’m an Urban Explorer. I haven’t been to Europe in over 13 years and I’ve never been to Spain, so I have all of my fingers and toes crossed to win this one!

  • Jon M

    Urban Explorer. Spain is one of the great foodie countries in the world and there’s nothing better than spending several days wandering and eating your way through Madrid

  • Zsnyde

    I chose Luxury Lover for an impending engagement to my girlfriend!

  • Kaladeb

    Family Traveler. With 7 brothers and sisters, the 10 rooms would be a great weekend reunion for all of us!

  • Amanda Stone

    I would have a difficult time choosing between the Urban Explorer or the Luxury Lover. Those 500k points would be amazing!

  • John S

    Hi. I chose the Urban Explorer too. It’s just too good of an opportunity to see Madrid. I’ve always wanted to go.

  • John Y

    I’d choose Urban Explorer. I’ve been to Spain before and it was a blast! Great food and wonderful people.

    Luxury Traveler because I aspire to be Mrfuancypants like u guys:-)

  • Lauren

    All of the packages sound cool, but I chose the Urban Explorer because I would love to see Madrid!

  • George

    I chose the Discoverer package, since I really like to feel like a local by trying new foods and learning more about the local culture by wandering about in a new city.

  • avifly

    I chose luxury too because I need the escape

  • Bostondeallover

    I’ll go with Weekend Warrior. Anything better than a free weekend getaway?

    Luxury Lover package because of it’s flexibility

  • Darren Epps

    I am an urban explorer. My future wife and I (getting married in October) do not have a honeymoon planned, and I’m pretty certain that a trip to Madrid would score me some serious points with my lovely bride.

  • MidTierStatus

    Discoverer… I want to see the world

    Hi, TPG,

    I just played and I’m a Discoverer! I can always use Paris in my life and could really use an almond croissant from Nelly Julien!

  • Daniel

    Hey there – I chose the Luxury package. I’ve already been to the places listed in the other packages, and as I’m in a long distance relationship with someone in Asia, having a chance to stay at a luxury hotel with them would be fantastic.

  • Brian Wiese

    I chose the Luxury Package because my wife and I need pampering after recently having our first child!

  • Christel

    All of these options sound amazing. I personally would choose the Discoverer (Europe) package. Urban Explorer is tempting, but I’ve already been to Madrid, so I would like to see Barcelona and give Paris another chance as my previous visit fell short of expectations. Plus, travel is about all about learning for me. Discoverer seems like the perfect fit!

    Thanks TPG!

  • Sa Arpita

    I chose the Discoverer package because I would like to discover Barcelona

  • Krista

    Urban Explorer here! Anytime I can explore a new city makes my year!

  • http://www.morekidsthansuitcases.com/ Steve

    I chose the Family Traveler package, because if there’s anything better than traveling with your kids, it’s putting them in a separate room when it’s time to go to sleep.

  • Dayzzz@BKK

    I choose the Luxury Lover. Since I live in Bangkok and doesn’t have a time to go to US/Europe, it makes only sense to choose the Luxury Lover that can be used here in Bangkok or near any cities in Asia.
    It would be great present to my wife. :)

  • http://passingthru.com/ Betsy

    The Urban Explorer is really tempting – especially if planning to use the package as a portal to additional travel in North Africa, as some have suggested. But I have to go with the Discoverer. I’d take my husband on his first trip to Europe. In Paris, he’d finally understand what all the fuss is about. :) And then we’d be first-timers together in beautiful Barcelona. Thanks for the opportunity – awesome giveaway!

  • Bazhenov

    I played for Urban Explorer because my wife and I travelled to Catalonia last spring and would love to see more of Spain. Besides, getting the Spanish visa is easier than the US or Canadian one.

  • Nick

    I choose Luxury package cause i like luxury hotels

  • Fotobrad

    50K Marriott points would by nice. I love to hop on a plane and explore the world!

  • PITT_Flyer

    While all the other packages are attractive, I would choose the Luxury package, hands down. Checking in, and mentally checking out, are my favorite things to do but I never seem to have time to do them both.

  • Bmattalino

    I ended up with the urban explorer package. I probably ended up with it because I am always trying new foods and new activities, usually without any hesitation.

  • http://www.facebook.com/getmarshall Michelle Marshall

    I chose the Urban Explorer. I went to Madrid 2 years ago and absolutely loved it, however I was only there a few days, so I didn’t get to see everything and hope to one day return. The food, the culture, everything about Madrid and Spain in general is just so inviting and one quickly gets wrapped up in it. It’s a wonderful country, hopefully I will win so that I can return again! Thx.

  • Ahardee

    I chose the Discoverer. I spent a weekend in Paris several years ago
    and am dying to go back. I’d also live to visit Barcelona for the first time. Thanks!

    Definitely the discovere package with a tour of Barcelona and Paris. Nothing like doing those 2 cities in style.

  • Cheddar

    I chose discoverer. Spain and France would be the 28th and 29th countries I’ve visited. (at least a dozen of those are military travel related, not sight seeing!)

  • http://www.facebook.com/masonatkinson Mason Atkinson

    I’d pick the urban explorer because I’ve never been to Europe!

  • Linda K

    I’d choose Discoverer because I’d love to see Spain and France!

  • Kathleen

    I chose the luxury lover and would stay at the J.W. Marriott Guanacaste resort and spa in costa rica. I love the spa and relaxing on the beach and the airline miles would be more than enough to get there. Never been to Costa Rica but have heard it is beautiful.

  • Laurent

    Hi. I chose the Individualist package because I have never been to Taos. Thank you

  • DanB

    Ended up as the Urban Explorer. Would love to explore Europe some more. Glad it’s Toledo, Spain, and not Toledo, Ohio.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brian.healey.98 Brian Healey

    I choose the Luxury lover. Both my wife and I work really hard and when it comes to vacations, well we are true vacationers, not travelers or adventurers. We enjoy first class flights and top-notch hotels. Our favorite place to go is Aruba for the wonderful hotels, restaurants, and beautiful beaches. It’s also very consistent weather. I’ve been Marriott platinum for about 6 years, and I am Diamond on Delta. Reading TPG has helped me earn many vacations through the various bonuses and credit card offers. Just wanted to say thanks!

  • http://twitter.com/dewbertdc John Dewar

    I chose the Luxury Lover. My job has been grueling for the past few months, and I could really use the time to pamper myself and recharge!

  • Ken

    Hi, I’m Urban Explorer. I would love to go to Madrid.

  • Harveyb100

    I hope I win a prize. Sounds really good.

  • Travis

    i went with luxury lovers as i want to be able to go anywhere in the world and try different places. being stuck to the USA is boring to me :)

  • Harveyb100

    I chose the Urban Explorer because I like to find out how people live in cities, which have great museums and restaurants.

  • BenSos

    Luxury Lover. Been to a few JWs but really enjoy the one in Cancun and would love to go back. My wife and I went there a couple times when we were dating. We had a suite that opened up to the beach and while she was at the spa, I would workout in the gym. The gym was my favorite because it was on a higher floor, overlooking the beach. Something about running on those treadmills while overlooking the beach and watching the waverunners go back and forth was incredibly relaxing. Of course, actually being on the beach, sipping a tropical drink was pretty good too.

  • Jason

    The game said I was an Individualist…but I think the Discoverer package is more my speed…would love to use it to visit Paris for the first time!!!!
    Thanks for the tip! (as always)

  • StephenG

    I was going back and forth between family and luxury. We have 2 family reunions planned for next year but I went with luxury for a nice getaway.

  • Brandon S.

    I chose Luxury Lover because I like to relax when I’m on vacation.

  • Daniel Crawley

    It looks liek the quiz successfuly matched me to what I wanted, the Discoverer in both.

  • Kirinmarie55

    I chose the Luxury Lover’s package for a romantic ,relaxing getaway with my sweet husband! I’d love to be pampered in some exotic location :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1516954975 Steve Desruisseau

    Discoverer for me!!!

  • Avi

    I chose Individualist. Between work travel (100%) and personal travel, I would just like to relax and that too not far from home

  • Shorty

    I chose the luxury lover, because nothing could beat doing what vacation is meant for: relaxation.

  • Ran Zhang

    Hello Points Guy! I was selected as Urban Explorer. However, my 90% of the travels are for business as I am in the management consulting industry. So honestly speaking, I will just take a flight to client site and work, go back to hotel, and then work again. Work does not give me enough time to truely explore the areas. They need to add “true business road warrior” category!

  • John M Draz

    I chose Urban Explorer because I love exploring other cities.

  • http://www.facebook.com/max.framschwartz Max Fram-Schwartz

    I chose the Weekend Wanderer because I am adventurous, but given my work schedule, weekend adventures are what work best for me.

  • Steve H.

    I chose the discoverer package for a few reasons, first being that is what my “travel type”is (per the app). More importantly, though, when I took my fiance there last summer (both Paris and Barcelona), we did it all wrong…no planning ahead, we didn’t get to experience everything we would have liked, and we were always on the go, switching hotels for all three nights in Paris. A mulligan would be great on those two spots…fingers crossed! Also staying at the Marriott San Juan for our wedding and we now live in Chicago, so those other options are less enticing.

  • hkflyer

    I chose the Urban Explorer package. Since my wife and I haven’t been to Spain, it would be a very good trip to explore such cultural rich cities. Personally I like the train travel too, and we can hop on a train to go around in Spain after visiting Madrid and Toledo! Thanks for this great information!

  • Shari

    I chose the luxury lover, because I have a stressful job and being in a relaxing, luxurious environment means the world to me.

  • CathyF

    Hi, I chose the luxury package and wouldstay in a topnotch hotel and spa.

  • Jason

    I chose the Discover package, because Europe must be crossed off of the bucket list.

  • Lindsey

    I chose the Discoverer package, because I love to check out new places and meet unusual people!

  • Roger Ricci

    I chose the Luxury Package, because staying in a nice high end hotel while being pampered would be a great way to de-stress from school!

  • MLR

    Urban explorer no doubt. 500k points, $3,000 cash, AND frolicking around Madrid and Toledo. I might just do it even if I don’t win.

  • Monique

    After playing the game, I was named the Discover profile and it couldn’t be more fitting. I love to experience new things and learn about local culture. With every trip that is the goal in mind and love the idea of creating a unique travel experience. To me, going on a trip is about being a traveler not a tourist and would love the opportunity to discover a great new destination.

  • http://twitter.com/LukeTheSaint Jason Luke

    I chose the luxury lover package. I love staying in classy hotels in exotic places!

  • http://twitter.com/LukeTheSaint Jason Luke
  • Wes S

    I would do the discover and have the time of my life!

  • Larissa

    I chose the family traveler. I would take my whole family to Disneyland because they have never been.

  • Mfzoey

    Discover sounds the best, because I’m leaving on a cruise from Barcelona next summer and I haven’t made any other arrangements yet!

  • Tom1957ainsworth1957

    I chose “Individualist”, which suites me when I’m not traveling on business!

  • ASW

    I chose the Urban Explorer package because I’ve always wanted to visit Madrid and see the beautiful Palacio Real, the “Golden Triangle of Art” consisting of the Prado Museum, Thyssen Museum and Reina Sofia Museum. If I could squeeze in a side trip to Barcelona to see all of Gaudi’s buildings and Seville to see the Granada, I’d be a super happy camper. Of course I wouldn’t be camping, but rather staying the lovely Marriott Hotels around Spain.

  • racerider009

    I picked urban explorer because I like to stay active and busy. Lazing around isn’t good for anyone at home or on vacation.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kathy.rose.1004 Kathy Rose

    I went with the Discoverer package–going to Barcelona & Paris. Always have wanted to visit Paris. Winning the trip would be wonderful; once in a lifetime! Also, just wanted to thank you for all the advice you provide. It has helped me numerous times. Love your blogging!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/AHELRXESCX3Y6JOS2OV3ICZCOE Dennis

    Luxury Lover Package. We love you TPG :-)

  • Jetpuffed

    I chose Urban Explorer because I am Spanish, yet have never been to Spain.

  • Jamey

    Discoverer–I want to explore the sights, sounds and tastes of Paris.

  • swesthead

    I would choose the Discoverer Package because I’d love to take a trip to Barcelona with my son for college graduation. He was there as an honors Spanish student his freshman in high school and loved it. Later, as a freshman in college he was hit by a drunk driver and suffered a significant head injury and has struggled academically since. it would be awesome to spend time with him before he leaves the nest!

    Thanks,

    Steve

  • Stephcoon

    I chose the Urban Explorer -what a fun vacation to dream about! Thanks for all you amazing tips & even if I don’t win all I have to do is keep reading your blog & I can go to Madrid anytime I want!! Thanks Points Guy!!

  • Yaswanth

    I chose Luxury Lover! If you’re going to get something for free you might as well live it up in Luxury right? Plus how can you possibly pass up on 500,000 Marriott Rewards points that number blows my mind! Especially with their amazing value when used with their Hotel+Air packages. 120,000 miles + 7 Nights at a Category 8 hotel for only 360,000 MR Points!

  • MileHigh

    Luxury Lover! 5 nights at any JW Marriott worldwide is definitely the ticket! Plus I never use the spa when I’m out of town and have always wanted to treat myself. I can see a fun trip for New Years coming together quickly!!!

  • ralphcarlson

    I like the idea of the Urban Explorer but not necessarily Spain so I pick the luxury lover. Maybe try out Bail.

  • BEinstein

    I chose the Discoverer package because my partner was born and raised in Puerto Rico and we would like to take our son to PR to learn about his culture and meet family he has never met. It would be a great trip for him, since he’s now a teenager and growing up.

  • Matt laffer

    Luxury Lover for sure! who doesn’t love enjoying the luxurious thigns we cant always have!

  • Geoward

    I chose the Discovery package. I have never been to Europe. My wife has but not to Paris or Barcelona. Plus the points sound great.

  • Lantean

    Luxury lover… Because it’s international. ;-)

  • Kaleroy Zervos

    Oooh, this was tough! At first I was leaning toward the Family Traveler thinking it would be great to get family members who live far away to all meet up somewhere for a vacation. And then I thought the Luxury Lover would be soooo nice for myself! But I’m going with the Urban Explorer as I’m fluent in Spanish but have only been to Spain once…and that was when I was younger, so I think I’d enjoy it more now.

  • Wanderluster

    It was a difficult choice, but I went with the Family Traveler. There are a lot of ways to use 10 x 3 night stays at Residence Inn.

  • Susanrebalee

    I chose the Discoverer package! I chose it because I’ve been wanting to take my husband for a while and one of the destinations we want to go to is Paris. Love your blog; I read it every day!

  • Dennybob

    I am an Urban Explorer and can’t wait to get back to Madrid.

  • John Benton

    Family traveler here…

  • JohnB

    Family traveler would be great!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=620577947 Dave Brown

    Urban Explorer. Madrid in a favorite of mine and I’m looking forward to taking my parents there. It’ll probably be their last trip so we’re going to make it epic and these points would certainly accomplish that!

  • Rene Miller

    RMiller

    I chose the Urban Explorer as I’ve never been to Madrid nor Toledo so winning this trip would truly be an exploration for me!

  • silver springer

    I would like urban explorer and to see more of Spain

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=526326349 Karl Gust

    Discoverer!! Perfect for a nice family trip to a fun location.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=14812494 Nicholas Edward Hilbert

    I would choose the Luxury Lover package due to the extreme need to get away from the cold midwest winters! The 500,000 rewards points would totes be awesome as well!

  • fujile

    I chose the Family Traveler package

  • Charenee

    I chose the Urban Explorer package because it perfectly matched my travel personality. I really want to explore new countries, like Spain. And, the fact that it includes travel, accomodations, spending money, and a little history (the Thyssen Museum) is awesome! I have been a Platinum member of Marriott for 5 years, but the majority of my travel has been for business. I would love this opportunity to travel for myself.

  • http://twitter.com/meghanboyce Meghan Boyce

    I chose the Discoverer package. 8 days wandering Barcelona and Paris sounds fantastic!

  • Michael

    Individualist Package – we have been to New Mexico several times, but never to Taos. The serenity, sunsets and 500,000 points would make for a great vacation!!

  • aaronbumbarger

    I’m a Discoverer. I’ve decided that I’m going to fulfill a lifelong dream of travelling the world, so hopefully I win and a trip to Paris and Barcelona will be my first stops.

  • Kanak

    I got urban explorer. Love Madrid and would be interested in checking out Toledo.

  • Wfoley629

    Hi, I like the Discoverer package. Europe is so nice in the fall.

  • Glen

    Discoverer–I want to explore the sights, sounds and tastes of new cities with a great group of friends!

  • Anson

    I chose the Discoverer package

  • Benjamin Ting

    I chose the Individualist package because I like to do my thing! Love the freedom to visit, eat, sleep or do whatever spontaneously without being bothered by others.

  • Brad

    I chose the Discoverer… The Paris and Barcelona combo sounds amazing!

  • Bran Don

    Another Luxury Lover here… big fan of JW’s!

  • Craig

    Yet another Luxury Lover — I’d be heading to the JW Marriott in Phuket!

  • alwaysontheroad

    I chose the Luxury Lover.
    I have too many JW’s that I still need to visit around the world. Since I travel every week in the US the other one’s didn’t appeal to me as much as this one does. It allows me to get out of my normal travel routines, away from the airports across the US that I see on a regular basis.

  • Victor b

    I also likes the urban explorer as I have always wanted to go madrid.

  • Karen

    I chose the luxury package as you can never get enough pampering. The spa would be wonderful.

  • http://twitter.com/DownwtheIone Daniel Rock

    I chose urban explorer, because I’ve always wanted to go to Spain.

  • James

    I went tot the discovery package as i love seeing new things.

  • Matt

    I chose Luxury Lover. A relaxing stay for my wife and I would be a great way to reconnect and get away form the kids for a while! I also like the option of picking where we go.

  • VG

    Apparently I’m an Urban Explorer. I’d rather fly than drive, and I’d rather be out of the country than in it. I’ve been to Madrid, but at a young age. I remember liking it very much, but I’d like to see it as an adult with different tastes and more money to fulfill those tastes! Thanks for the contest!

  • Yanina

    Weekend Wanderer package is my favorite.

  • Trevor

    I entered for the Luxury Lover Package because any opportunity I have to improve my health and meet with someone who is more knowledgable then me, I’m in! Spa treatments are also a perfect compliment on a trip!

  • joejabjab

    Luxury package to get away and relax! JW Marriott has some great options around the world that I’ve never been. . .and the award gives miles to get us there! It’d be wonderful.

  • Macken7

    The Discover trip for sure as my daughter has indicated for a long time, that Barcelona is the place she wants to go.

  • Ritu Verma

    I entered for the Luxury Lover Package because any opportunity I have to improve my health and meet with someone who is more knowledgable then me, I’m in! Spa treatments are also a perfect compliment on a trip!

  • GusC

    Family Traveler! With the little man now in our lives there are so many places we love to share with him.

  • http://www.facebook.com/tyler.canova Tyler Canova

    Urban Explorer for me. My family name hails from Spain and as such has been an object of my curiosity for many years. Planning on going to Spain in the next few years and a few more points never hurt!

  • Travismarziani

    I am a total urban explorer

  • Kamaraj C

    Weekend warrior for me :)

    I like to explore new places and this fits best for me.

    Discoverer, with the Europe package!

  • JeffreyHP

    Individualist…

  • Daveclairmad

    The Urban Explorer for me. Love to immerse myself in a new culture.

  • michaelspain

    Howdy! I picked the Discoverer package because I’m an adventurer at heart. I also liked that they allow me to include a guest. The only thing better than an adventure is an adventure shared! No…the BEST thing is an adventure shared for FREE ;-) Thank you for all your valuable information!

  • Mikael Landau

    Luxury Lover…it’s all about the JW’s.

  • alex1432

    Another Luxury Lover here… big fan of JW’s!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1310809751 Susan Stripling Edwards

    I’d choose the Individualist package. I love Taos and it would be a bonus to be able to drive from Dallas and save the points for future use. The art and spending money sound pretty nice too!

  • Drew Lineback

    I’m a Luxury Lover too… I’d much rather be relaxing somewhere while on vacation!

  • LL

    Hi there: I chose the Discoverer package because Spain is one of my most favorite countries to visit, Barcelona in particular, and I’ve always wanted to visit Paris but haven’t been able to, for one reason or another. Marriott’s description of a “Discoverer” also pretty accurately describes my preferred style of travel, especially the part about being a local wherever I travel. I prefer to get out of the hotel (or hostel) and immerse myself in the local culture.

  • Mary Lynn

    It was no contest – the Luxury Lover. Would love to explore a new part of the world while based in super-luxurious digs.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jim.williams.524 Jim Williams

    Second time around I got the Discoverer. First time, Individualist…. Fun!

  • Cliff Squared

    That luxury package seals the deal for me. Five nights in an exotic locale like Iceland!

  • Dave Smith

    I would choose the luxury package. Interestingly, that’s what the results of my taking the poll resulted in too. Where to go? Thailand beckons, but we are flexible.

  • JE

    It depends on my mood, but I ended up as Luxury Lover, I think because I could use a break!

  • http://profiles.google.com/awindenberger Aurelien Windenberger

    I chose the luxury package as I would love to use to points towards a belated honeymoon for my wife and I!

  • MiamiMike2

    I chose the Urban Explorer because I love Spain.

  • Sh1016

    It showed that I am a Luxury Lover which is true but I might choose the Discovery since I would like to go to Barcelona. Either way would be great!!! Good luck to me!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1108519451 Stephen O’Connor

    Urban explorer here. Having spent my post-college summer in Spain, I have nothing but fond memories of Madrid. Recently we were back in Madrid and had the best seafood meal of our life at Bajamar, very close to the Plaza de Espana.

  • Julie

    Luxury Lover for me – any chance to escape my hectic life and relax is worth its weight in gold!

  • Lynchvision

    Luxory lover all the way!! If I win my wife will be awestruck!

  • Chetanghuang

    luxury package. That’s a good way to relax.

  • Ayarella

    The Discoverer package sounds AMAZING. I’d love to go to Madrid, period. :)

  • Nb Cooper

    I chose the urban explorer package so I can revisit Madrid. I was there for a few days during a tour of Spain in the late fall and it rained the entire time I was there and it was hard to do much exploring. This package would enable me to walk the city and really get to know it a little better. I’m a city person and I need to walk a place to get to know it. Good luck to all.
    Thanks

  • scott

    The Discoverer Package – I love Paris, and would love to go back there and also visit other areas of France I haven’t seen before!

  • Discoverer

    Discoverer, of course. What is more fun that seeing new places!!

  • Shaun

    I chose the Luxury Lover package… because that’s what the app told me I was. Although looking at the list it looks the best, since I can choose any JW in the world.

  • Heather C.

    I chose the Urban Explorer option because I ADORE Spain’s culture, language and people! I spent my Junior hear of high school as an exchange student near Valencia, and I later did my Master’s in Spanish Lit. I cannot get enough of the ‘tapas’, ‘sevillanas’ and Real Madrid soccer team. Que Viva Espana!!

  • Evan

    Luxury lover, because I love the flexibility of the package. the options are endless!

  • goldenbear

    Luxury Lover – A great way to spend a week relaxing!

  • Archie

    I picked the Luxury Lover as well. The JW Marriott at Phuket sounds like the perfect place for my 2nd honeymoon! :)

  • chatel-censoir

    The Urban Explorer chose me……and it was right on! It is all about travel…Take Risks Always Very Exciting Life.

  • Mary Ewald

    Hi, how’s life? I chose the Luxury Lover. I teach high school full-time and am enrolled in an online M.A. program at the same time. Between papers to correct and my own homework to correct, I’d love to have a week of absolutely nothing to do but be pampered. Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Sundares84

    I chose the Luxury package because I’d love to get the points and also get away to a fantastic luxury escape in Rio!

  • Afz8

    Weekend Wanderer! Love the flexibility to get multiple trips to different locations out of the option.

  • Jeff

    I choose the Luxury package because I enjoy all of the JW Marriott hotels that I have stayed at in the past.

  • Kevin

    I choose the Discoverer because I want to visit Barcelona again and stoll Las Ramblas.

  • Bucksmith

    Urban Explorer for me. I’ve been to Barcelona, but not recently to Toledo or Madrid. The 500K points translates into a lot of airline miles — enough to for two to go anywhere, first class!

  • Mgdsob

    I chose Discoverer – get to see Barcelona and Paris and put some cash into the trip and also see London and Switzerland. Its totally awesome

  • Sheil

    Urban Explorer! Love visiting new places on vacation. Well I’ve never been to Spain, but I kind of like the music….

    The Luxury Lover – 6 nights away, spa, serenity now!

  • MeganG

    Marriott says I’m an Urban Explorer, but since I’ve been to Madrid and Toledo, I would choose to be a Discoverer. I’ve never been to Barcelona, and I would love to see Paris again.

  • Uppieanderica

    I ended up being an Urban Explorer. I had been planning a trip to Barcelona for my Mom (she is the best travel partner EVER), but I think we could be convinced to head to Madrid instead.

  • Steven

    I chose the Luxury Lover package, because I could really use some nice pampering in an exotic location.

  • Dawn Grieco

    Well. . . Love your site. . just found it while planning a trip! Anyway, I entered. . . they told me I am a Discoverer but that’s only because with three young kids its impractical to be a luxury lover anymore! :P Hubby and I are planning to take a trip late spring/early summer to celebrate 10 years of marriage. But, how great would it be to take the whole family somewhere after using all our points on our private getaway. . . especially the local greatness of Chicago and New Orleans here in the States!

  • Cyndipic

    Luxury Lover cuz we celebrated our 10th anniversary this year at Longhorn Steakhouse since I am out of work and can’t afford to take my wifey for a nice trip… so, it’ll be cool to take advantage of this package and treat my understanding and loving spouse.

  • Czech

    I chose urban explorer because it best meshes with the type of travel I enjoy.

  • FamTraveller

    I went with Family Traveler. We have two small kids and the package would work great for us (with in room fridge), gas, etc. We could go to Orlando with the spending money!!! Wow for the kids.

  • EFJX

    I picked the Discoverer. I like multiple days in just a few cities instead of a whirlwind type tour. Also… sad to say, I haven’t been to any of those cities… so I’m hoping to win :)

    I chose the Discoverer. I thought about the Luxury Lover (an apt description for me), but decided that would be too many choices to make. With the Discoverer, Paris and Barcelona – two of my all time favorites – beckon. My bags are packed. I sure hope I win!

  • Vickiburtonlives

    Luxury. I’m all in for HI.

  • Douglas Bendinger

    I chose the Luxury Lover. We spent our honeymoon at the Marriott Vacation Club in Mallorca, Spain and I would love to take my wife somewhere special for our 10th next year. We always stay in Marriott properties so I know she will be thrilled!

  • PJ

    I chose discoverer because paella on the beach in barcelona is the best!

  • ORDPLATAA

    I picked the Urban Adventurer package. Madrid is one of the most fascinating cities I have been to (although my time there was all too brief). I love the feel of the city – it is certainly one where you need to get out and stroll the city to uncover all of its hidden charms.

  • Chris Wada

    I chose the Individualist package. Digging the art scene plus I would like to visit New Mexico one of these days.

  • Rui Zhang

    I dreamed of driving in/to/through all 50 states in US, and have achieved 22 for the last year. I am busier this year, but it cannot stop me from driving to all other states for fun on weekends or during Christmas. I look forward to it. And, I prefer luxury hotels such as R and JW M, they endows the road trip more fun!

  • Belkis

    Urban Explorer. I would love the visit Madrid!

    I would chose the Urban Explorer. I would love to spend some time in Madrid and explore that part of the world.

  • Ryan Zhang

    I would pick the Discoverer – I’ve been wanting to go to Paris for so long and the prsonalized discovery experience curated by local renaissance navigators just sounds so cool!

    I chose the luxury lover for all of the freedom it offers yet at the same time… ahh.. spa package, awesome! :) It’s just one of the many reasons I try to stay at Marriott Properties when I travel!

  • Jason Grunin

    Discoverer – hands down. Would love the opportunity to explore both of these cities in Paris and Spain, and as a recent college graduate, what better time to experience these places.

    I took the “Luxury Lover”. I haven’t had a vacation from work in a couple of years and could really use a relaxing stay.

  • Abby S

    I entered and chose the Luxury package — JW Marriott’s are great, and I love the flexibility of being able to choose any of them.

  • Ivanmkc

    I chose Discoverer because of $3,000 in spending money~

  • Diana

    I chose the Luxury explorer – I plan to go tot the JW Marriott in Cusco and deliver water filters to the mountain villages. I have delivered water filters to cities in 13 countries in the past year. While in Peru I would also use points to stay at the JW in Lima (my favorite hotel in Lima) and continue my trip to The Amazon to a village outside of Pucalpa where I have lived (no Marriott properties there) with the Amazonian tribes on several occasions to deliver more water filters to the villages along the river. The filters give much needed 200 gallons of fresh water a day for years if kept clean .. no filters or parts to replace . My fingers are crossed. I am headed to Borneo next week to deliver filters. Thanks

    I chose the Luxury Lover because of the flexibility it affords with being able to stay in any worldwide Marriott! As I’m newly married, I’m sure that my wife would love a second honeymoon in an exotic location! Many thanks, TPG for all you do as it’s really appreciated!
