Westin Travel and Be Well 48,000 points Sweepstakes

Westin is promoting the healthy benefits of taking a vacation from work with its “Travel and Be Well” Sweepstakes.

200 prizes of 48,000 points will be awarded to SPG members who pledge to take a vacation before the end of the year.

Entries will be accepted between September 15 and October 15, 2010. Restricted to legal residents of the 50 U.S. and D.C. and Canada, excluding Quebec.

The prizes are advertised as a four-night stay at a Westin Hotel in the U.S., Canada or the Caribbean. The drawing will be held October 18, 2010. Points must be used within 12 months of deposit in your account. I am not clear from the promotion rules if they will really restrict the use of the 48,000 points to Westin Hotels.

The sweepstakes is simple enough to enter.

My minor complaint about the vacation promotion information webpage www.travelandbewell.com/wellness is the article “The Importance of Vacations” from About.com by Elizabeth Scott, M.S. provides no link to her original article.  She references several other about.com travel articles in the text on the page but there are no links embedded in the Westin promotion copy. The article link I included above takes you to the about.com page with links to the other articles she references.
