Users of the social networking site Foursquare can now earn points in the Starwood Preferred Guest program: Now through the end of July each virtual check-in when staying in one of the brand’s 1000-plus hotels racks up 250 Starpoints. All SPG members have to do is sync their Foursquare accounts on

To sweeten the deal, every day in May one lucky Foursquare member who checks in with SPG will win a Free Resort Night. Plus, Starwood will award one grand prize of five Free Resort Nights plus airfare for all check-ins made through July.

And as with any place on Foursquare, it is possible to become the Mayor. Each month Starwood will name the Foursquare member with the most check-ins the “SPG Mayor,” a title that includes a mention on the SPG Foursquare page as well as a chance to offer travel advice to fellow users.
