  • What is Topguest? Topguest is a new and free members-only mobile application that gives you real hotel points, air miles, and elite travel perks automatically for your Facebook Places or Foursquare check-ins. What do you mean when you say real points? We think that the fake virtual points and badges you get on certain services are fun, but our discerning Topguest members demand more. That’s why we’ve entered into exclusive partnerships with many of the top real points programs for travelers, such Virgin America Elevate, Hilton HHonors, and Priority Club just to name a few. As a Topguest you get real points from these programs for your geolocation check-ins at their places. The best part is that whether you use Facebook Places, Foursquare, or even Gowalla to check-in, you will get Topguest rewards automatically. For a full list of our points program partners, click here What are the elite travel perks? Topguest rewards aren’t just limited to points. You’ll automatically receive these perks after just a few check-ins (usually 5 or less) at the associated partner places, Some perks include free rounds of drinks, spa passes, complimentary stay credits, 25% off premier rooms at top-flight hotels, and so on. Many of the most exclusive hotels in the world offer Topguest perks, such as Shangri-La, Thompson, Standard, and Viceroy.
