Starwood Partners with Foursquare

Starwood Preferred Guests who use Foursquare are now getting more than just badges. SPG’s latest partnership now awards Starpoints for members who link their account.

To avoid non-hotel guests from racking up points in their closest Starwood Hotel lobby, the program only awards 250 points when you have a confirmed reservation at the hotel.

We’ve seen a growing number of gtrot members linking their Foursquare accounts to gtrot to help track the places they’ve been. It will be interesting to see if more travelers sign up for Foursquare to get rewarded. This notion of earning travel awards in exchange for place check-ins is nothing new.

Travel rewards site TopGuest which rewards hotel guests ‘just for being there’ has supported multiple top check-in services and hotel loyalty programs since 2010.

So, would this make you sign-up for Foursquare if you haven’t before?
