Did You Win My 60,000 Starwood Starpoint Giveaway?

My 60,000 Starpoint giveaway — in which 2 readers win 30,000 Starwood Starpoints apiece, courtesy of American Express — has now ended.

The American Express folks wanted to know how you would ‘stretch your summer’ with 30,000 Starwood points, the new limited time bonus offer on their Starwood American Express personal and small business credit cards.

So I asked y’all, and 3770 entries were submitted before the close of the context.

I drew winners with the help of Random.org.

The first winner was entry #606:

and that was Tina Trin who wrote:

W in Los Angeles

Our second winner was entry 2408:

That winner was revealed as Austin who wrote:

St Regis Bora Bora!

Now, I should note that in checking the eligibility of these winners I did find an Austin mentioning a different St. Regis shortly before this winning entry. So I verified that it was a different Austin. We take the rules seriously here and want to award prizes to the right readers.

Tina and Austin I will be passing the results on to American Express right away. Congratulations, enjoy Los Angeles and Bora Bora….!
