For last week’s Thursday Giveaway, we gave one lucky reader a pair of courtside tickets to a first round match at the US Open, and on Monday evening, I was invited to attend a match at the USTA with Starwood Preferred Guest. I had a great time even though the men’s matches were rained out, and one of the perks of the event was the swag bag that the other guests and I were given.

I know a lot of readers were and are excited about the US Open, even if they’re not able to attend this year, so for this week’s Thursday Giveaway, I’m going to hand off the Starwood swag bag I got, including a Kate Spade tote.

The goodies inside it include:

Kate Spade “Love is in the Air” Starwood tote
Starwood Preferred Guest Umbrella
Starwood Preferred Guest Resort Member Favorites Hardcover
SPG iPhone Cover
Lacoste Tennis Hat
Lacoste Sweatbands
Eucerin SPF 30 Moisturizer
Aquaphor Lip Repair
Commemorative Oversize US Open Tennis Ball

And to make it just a little more special, I’ll throw in 1,000 Starpoints to the lucky winner (purchased as a gift and deposited directly into your account).

It’s a fun little grab bag and filled with little knickknacks and gifts for you to enjoy yourself or give to the tennis enthusiasts in your life.

To enter the contest, all you have to do is follow me on Twitter and tweet me @thepointsguy with the hashtag #TPGSPGSwag telling me what your favorite Starwood property is and why.

You have until 12pm noon on Monday, September 2, to do so and then we’ll choose a winner at random and announce it on Tuesday. Comment with any questions, but otherwise, I look forward to reading your SPG picks on Twitter!
