Question Starwood Lurker asks:"Guess what's next"

Noticed that Starwood Lurker has changed his tagline to read: "Guess what's next?"

'Guessing next' is an integral & favorite pastime here, and as it's not polite to let our #1 SL go around with an unanswered question, seeing as he is always prompt in answering ours....

hmmm....{besides the obvious hopeful 1st Q promo bonanza of extra points/free weekends/double count for every stay}....

Our gift (no luggage tags ) for reaching Platinum status for 2011

Well, I've already booked a few stays for January so if SPG wants me to cancel and switch, it better be good. ^

I have no clues, but if StarwoodLurker asks something good is about to happen. I'll just hope that it will be somehow involving Nice because I'll be staying there for two weeks in a few days and I'd really like some nice extras.

Maybe a mini-promo between now and the end of the year giving plats some rollover? Hint, Hint, William

Every year around this time I start thinking about trying one of the other chains. This year my thoughts are turning very heavily to Hyatt. If I were to guess something that would incline me to stay with SPG it would be guaranteed breakfast for Platinum SPG members. I already found out that Hyatt offers this to their top-tier, so it is an attraction for Hyatt.

It's either the Q1 promo or the release of the 2011 Lurkers of Starwood calendar.
