Save the Date: Join me, @JohnnyJet and @SPG for a Cyber Monday Twitter Chat: Monday November 26 at 10am PST/1pm EST
After you’ve stuffed yourself with turkey and are back at your desk on Monday hunting for Cyber Monday bargains, join me and and fellow travel expert Johnny Jet as we co-host a very special Twitter chat to help you find great deals on travel, give the gift of travel for the holidays and start planning your next getaway.
What You Can Expect: For the hour on Twitter, we’ll ask a series of questions and have fun helping you get started on booking your next trip. Johnny Jet and I will also share some of our favorite ways to give back and give the gift of travel for the holidays and tips for saving money on your next holiday!
On Cyber Monday, Starwood will also launch its “Five Days to Get Away” promotion, giving you five days to book special packages at a selection of 35 Starwood hotels and resorts including $219 a night for a five-night stay, plus a beach and cave tour and $100 food and beverage credit at The Westin Aruba Resort & Casino; $339 a night with spa and dining credits at The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort, Puerto Rico.
I spent some time last night “hotel peeping” on the Starwood Cyber Monday sale page and in addition to finding some great deals, one of my favorite features was the ability to quickly “like” my favorite participating Starwood hotels on Facebook. Liking your favorite brands on Facebook is a great way to keep on top of special offers from your favorite hotels throughout the year. You can also view all Starwood participating hotels on a map to get inspiration on where to go. Want to see what hotels will be featured in the Five Days to Getaway promotion? Like Starwood Travel Exclusives on Facebook for a sneak peek of sale destinations each day from now, leading up to Cyber Monday.
Take a look and we’ll see you on Monday!
