4 Comments

Starwood has decided to retire both the Starpicks (more here) and Beat The Timer (more here) rate promotions to introduce SPG Hot Escapes.

The Starpicks.com website is still up, but refers people to go visit spg.com/escapes instead. The Beat The Timer website is still up.

The normal SPG.com rate search has yet another rate box for SPG Member Only – Hot Escapes. We’ll see how “hot” these new Hot Escapes rates will be.

Conclusion

There were quite a bit confusion about both the Starpicks and Beat The Timer rate promotions. People were not very well aware of these rate specials and you had to remember to check them weekly.

I don’t think that I ever booked any Beat The Timer-rates, but may have booked the Starpicks rate couple of times.
