Since I am still away in Israel, here are some deals/promotions to take advantage of that I compiled from other blogs. I promise when I get home I’ll get you all caught up with every travel promotion, deal, tip out there!

  • Targeted SPG Promotion – 1 free night or 4,000 points: Starwood hotels sent out targeted emails for two different promotions. Even if you did not receive the email, still enter your SPG number to check your eligibility and register. Neither Mr. Deals nor I are eligible, but my mom (who has been an SPG number for a few years now but hardly stays at SPG properties) was targeted. Even if you do not have any upcoming stays with SPG, if you were targeted, the free night promotion could be a worthwhile mattress run. Thank you Mommy Points for sharing this promotion!
    • Stay between December 1, 2012 and February 28, 2013 and earn a free weekend night at a category 1-6 hotel. The earned free night expires February 28, 2014.
    • Earn 4,000 points per stay (up to 3 stays) by February 28, 2013.
  • Bonus Starwood Points with Le Meridien Hotels: Between now and February 28, 2013, you can earn bonus SPG points when staying at the Starwood Le Meridien Hotels in North American and French Polynesia. You will earn 1,000 points on your first qualifying paid stay, then 2,000 points on every qualifying paid stay thereafter. There is no cap on the number of points you can earn. You must register by January 15, 2013. Thank you The Points Guy for sharing this promotion!
  • $40 Car Service from NYC to/from Newark Airport: Via Living Social, you can purchase a car service voucher to/from Newark and Manhattan/Brooklyn/Queens. You can purchase up to 4 per account and is valid for 4 traveling passengers, but is only valid for one pick up/drop off location. This price excludes tolls and gratuities. Thank you Dans Deals for sharing this promotion!

    Had $15 deal bucks lying around, so $25 [plus tolls/tip] for a one-way transport to/from EWR from Queens ain’t half bad! Purchased and put aside for a future trip out of EWR without thinking twice about having to worry about traveling out of EWR! :D

    Too bad current conditions won’t allow Golan travel… It’s so beautiful.

    I wasn’t eligible for the SPG promo, but I appreciate you posting so that I can check!

    For the SPG Targeted Promo, it looks like there are actually a number of different promotions available. I haven’t been able to determine if it’s completely random or if it’s based on our activity/relation/stays history with them. I was offered Gold Status after just two more stays. (I already have 7 stays, so it’s not a huge deal for me. But it does extend the time I can get Gold to the end of February, instead of the normal calendar year.) Also, another friend of mine (who has 0 stays), received an offer for 2k Starpoints for EVERY stay he makes between now and the end of February. No limit. Another friend who has 35 stays received a message saying he’s not eligible. Interesting, huh?

    @Mitty – Thanks for letting me know. Glad to hear so many offers. Too bad no love from SPG for me!

    @Eager Traveler – We were going to go up to the Golan but it was pouring buckets.

  • dealswelike said,

    @CodeAdam10 – That is great!
