Starwood Preferred Guests (SPGs) can now earn additional points, badges and rewards from their loyalty program when they use Foursquare at participating Starwood hotels.
The new program begins on Tuesday with Foursquare/SPG members earning 250 bonus Starpoints when they link their Foursquare and SPG accounts together. Users then simply checkin to more than 1,000 hotels after confirming their reservation and they will earn points and other rewards.
According to the official Foursquare blog:
Starwood will continue to tailor and optimize Specials for people who are using foursquare. Can’t wait to get started? Go to spg.com/socialcheckins and link your SPG and foursquare accounts today. Happy travels!
