This week there is a daily trivia contest to win a Starwood Hotels free weekend night with the first correct response to a Starwood Hotels and SPG trivia question from SPGInsider on Twitter.
Carrie Houston is the SPG Chirper handling tweets on Twitter. I realized I should change my post title from “Win a free weekend night with SPGInsider”.
This is Day 3 of the five days of trivia questions for free nights.

Here is the FlyerTalk post from Starwood Lurker explaining the Twitter Trivia contest with a link to the contest rules.
SPG’s Annual Platinum Amenity Gift
On another note – I noticed the email today from last week regarding a Platinum member gift. The choice I received was between a one year subscription for a Conde Nast magazine title or a $25 gift certificate for a hotel extra charge like food, beverage, or spa. The certificate does not appear to be valid towards room rate payment.
I sure miss the past offers of a free night or 50% off an award stay.
I have to say though that a free magazine subscription for a Conde Nast title or a $25 certificate as the annual Platinum amenity gift was a bit underwhelming this year.
