Starwood has a website that offers 500 bonus points per stay for booking a reservation when their customer service lines are busy.
The site is up and working as of 5:30 PM EST. All you have to do is go to the site, book your reservation(s) and then receive the 500 point bonus when you make your stay.
Using this promo can make the points add up fast. For instance if you have 4 stays a week for 4 weeks it ends up being 8,000 bonus points (2,000 points a week x 4 weeks) just for booking on this site. If you add the 1,000 Getting Closer to Paradise, then throw in the Platinum 500 point bonus per night it gives you an additional 6,000 bonus points a week or 24,000 bonus points a month for a total of 32,000 (24,000 + 8,000) bonus points per month not including points for spend. Watch your points add up.
