Now through January 31, 2013, the first 5,000 Starwood Preferred Guest members that add a wish to the Travel Wish map will earn 100 Starpoints. I just did this as of 8:20am Monday (today) and it confirmed I’d get the points within 6 weeks, so it appears they haven’t hit the cap.

Previously some of the offers to get free SPG points required connecting to Facebook or checking in on FourSquare, however this offer doesn’t require either of those, and it takes less than a minute to do, so you might as well do it and get some free points.

An easy 100 SPG points for creating a Travel Wish

When you head to the site, it asks you to choose your Travel Wish. You can select from Sun N’ Surf, Majestic Mountains, City Capers, Total Tranquility or a Golf Getaway. I decided to go with the Majestic Mountains, then you choose a location, an SPG hotel, what you wish you could do there and who you want to go with. If anyone was wondering My Travel Wish, I chose the St. Regis Aspen.

I created my travel wish for a Ski Weekend, what will you choose?

Each Starwood Preferred Guest can only earn the bonus once. While 100 points isn’t going to get you close to an award stay, it’s a great way to keep your points active. Every point counts and who knows, maybe there will be more options to earn even more points as well. Even though it says the first 5,000 wishes will earn the 100 free Starpoints, my wish was #11,000 and it still let me enter my info for the points, so perhaps people are making multiple wishes or SPG is letting everyone who participates eligible.

After I created my wish, I was able to enter my SPG number and win some points!

Starwood is also offering a 40% discount on every second night at participating properties in North and South America. Reservations have to be booked through Starwood and the discount varies by hotel and is based on the best available, non-restricted rate. So you have to play around with the search function a little bit to find dates where the discount applies to properties you’re interested in, but there seems to be a fair amount of availability, so this could be a good way to save on some stays as you work your way toward elite status for 2013. Use the promo code ZB4 when you book online.

    Thanks for the tip! I got in on it too. Only 100 points, but they all count! :)

  • thepointsguy

    So when you submitted it didn’t say 100 points were on the way?

  • Dan Monahan

    Wish # 11490 @ 7:43 AM cst and they confirmed 100 points within 6 weeks. That’s 140K Starwood points this year! :-) Thanks for the tips!

  • Euan

    I’ve just done it and it said 100 points would be deposited in my account within 6 weeks.

  • Euan

    It may be that some people made more than 1 wish. Only the 1st wish gets the 100 points.

  • Jake_PB

    Still posting 100 pts at 6:20a pacific time. I haven’t posted points to SPG in nearly a year, so the timing was perfect – thanks TPG!

  • Nick

    TOC say capped at first 5,000.

  • Nick

    I did it too just in case, but this isn’t something like wyndham not saying that their 16k free night promo was a targeted promo. idk, fingers crossed that it works but you never know.

  • Mikaela

    Awesome!! Thanks

  • Renato T. Amador

    Thanks for the tip! I just signed in and it looks like they still haven’t hid the cap.

  • Jon

    Keep in mind that many people filling out the form are not SPG members (or never bothered to fill out their SPG information). The deal is that the first 5,000 SPG members that fill out the form with their name and SPG # get 100 points. Just because there are 11,000 wishes doesn’t guarantee that all 11,000 wishes were from SPG members that filled the form out at the end.

  • Aaron

    My wish was 13773. I also got the screen to enter my deets.

    Maybe, just maybe, they are planning on surprising us and will grant some people their wishes at the end of the promotion, kind of like an unannounced bonus! woohooo!
