For this week’s Thursday Giveaway, we’re offering a chance to win $500 to spend at any Starwood property. One of TPG’s favorite hotels is the St. Regis Bali Resort, a Starwood Category 7 property, and while $500 will barely get you a night at that hotel, it’ll go a long way at hundreds of other properties around the world.

As a reminder, you can earn 30,000 bonus Starpoints after you use your new Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express to make $3,000 in purchases within the first three months. In addition, you can also earn 30,000 bonus Starpoints with the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card, after making $5,000 in purchases within the first three months. But act quickly — this increased sign-up bonus is only available through September 14, 2015.

 

Both cards regularly offer a 25,000-point bonus. TPG values Starpoints at 2.4 cents apiece, so those additional 5,000 points amount to an extra $120 in value.

You must enter the giveaway below no later than 11:59pm EST on Monday, August 17.
