Usually we keep it simple for our Thursday Giveaway — perhaps some points from a recent buy miles promotion or airline or hotel gift cards. This time around, you’ll have the chance to win two tickets to see Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden on Friday, May 27 or Friday, June 17, and a two night stay at the Gramercy Park Hotel.

Remember that you can earn Starpoints with the SPG Amex towards stays at the Gramercy Park Hotel, as well as SPG Moments for unique cultural events. American Express recently announced a limited-time increased sign-up bonus on both the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express and the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express — from now until March 30, you can earn 35,000 bonus Starpoints when you spend $3,000 or $5,000 in the first three months on the personal and business cards, respectively.

Starwood Preferred Guest is one of our highest valued rewards programs and a 35,000-point bonus can certainly go a long way.

Hotel guests can access exclusive Gramercy Park.
