Win daily prizes with Starwood’s ‘Open The World’ competition

To celebrate its association with the US Open tennis tournament, Starwood Preferred Guest (the Sheraton, Westin, Le Meridien, St Regis, W etc chain) is running a daily online competition called ‘Open The World’.

The website to play is here.

SPG Open The World

The competition is open to UK residents, although some gift card prizes are restricted to US residents.  You are eligible to win one of 33 free night certificates and 561 prizes of 1,000 to 25,000 Starwood Preferred Guest points.  At the end of the competition, there will be an additional prize given to one entrant of a holiday at the Starwood hotel of their choice.

You can play TWICE per day until 30th September.  I had no success yesterday, despite playing twice for every member of my family with an SPG account, but I’m sure at least one HFP reader can win something today!

You need to be a member of Starwood Preferred Guest to play.  If you are not a member, you can sign up for free at the Starwood website.

  1. This is awesome – except the site isn’t working for me in Chrome. It doesn’t move on from the first page once I add my account and email.

    Safari worked ok, so now I’m losing just like everyone else!

  2. Once you have registered and played how do you return to play again?

  3. Do Starwood ever have any benefits/promotions for signing up for SPG? Or is it worth just signing up now?

    • If you sign up and don’t stay, you may get an offer like the one my Mum got this Summer, and which I wrote about – do a stay, get a free night (repeatable twice). She did this and I am waiting for the two Category 1-5 free night certificates to post.

  4. Sorry, I must be very thick! Have signed up but cannot find where to play on the website. Please can someone point me in the right direction.

  5. I now am the proud recipient of 1000 points! Now as long as I continue to win every day for the next month I should be ok…..

  6. Thanks for the link! I just won 5000 points.

  7. Thanks Raffles I have just won a free night award.

  8. Thanks, I won a $50 Amazon voucher today (I have a US mailing address)

  9. Raffles, I’ve won again! 25,000 points. I’m loving this competition. Thanks again for posting.
