If you have some time to kill you could score yourself some free hotel points from La Quinta by playing their Play & Stay Game. The game is a simple slot machine style game that gives you a chance at winning free points or free stays.
In order to pay you need tokens, which you start off with some and then can earn more by inviting friends, liking them on Facebook, and following La Quinta on Twitter.
Like a typical slot machine, when you get all three matching you win. Plus you are then giving the opportunity to increase the amount by answering a trivia question and then increase it further by Tweeting of posting to Facebook. So La Quinta gets a bunch of publicity from you and you get free points in return.
Free nights start at 6,000 points with La Quinta Returns and you never know when that might come in handy. I spent 10 minutes playing the game today and earned 800 points. It may not be enough for a free night but since La Quinta Returns points do not expire I will have plenty of time to get more points.
