Good Saturday morning, readers!
Earlier this week, I posted that the Starwood W Hotels and Acura has teamed up once again for a promotion where you can get either 2,000 Starpoints or $50 (AMEX prepaid gift card) for just test driving an Acura.
Well, I’m here with an update that yesterday after work, I stopped by my local W and picked up an Acura Rewards card for the promotional offer. I had walked up to the front desk receptionist and received one of these cards without any questions asked. Here’s the card:
Looks perfect. I am actually in the market for a car right now, so I will actually be doing a real test drive. That being said, there’s been rumors on the blogs that most dealerships will probably just give you the sticker you need if you want it (rather than you wasting their time if you’re not serious about buying).
While you can enter the sweepstakes for free by writing a postcard and mailing it, the only way to get the 2,000 Starpoints or the $50 AMEX Gift Card is by completing the test drive. So head to your local W Hotel folks! Also it should be noted that these cards are *supposedly* only supposed to go to registered guests. Bust out that charm if you have to. 🙂
I’m planning on test driving next week, and submitting everything online via acurarewards.com.
This promotion ends October 15, 2012.
Here’s the fine print and terms. (All very straight forward; no catches.)
