Last year, Starwood had a promotion called SPG Great Eight Challenge (read more here) for members residing in Greater China for bonus Starpoints, extra elite qualifying nights and a mystery gift.
The goal was to stay at six or eight of the Starwood’s nine brands. The only brand that is not presented in this market is the Element.
After I had completed the six and eight brand visits, Starwood posted the bonus points and elite qualifying nights to my account. I just received this past week the mystery gift that is a Rubik’s cube made of the SPG brands.

I did have the real Rubik’s cube back in the 1980’s when I was a kid. This mystery gift from SPG will probably ended up being regifted to someone.
The SPG Great Eight Challenge was a nice little promo. I ended up having stays at St. Regis and W brands that I wouldn’t have otherwise made.
