Sale: Buy Starpoints for 35% Off through July 2018
Starwood doesn’t appear to have made any cutbacks to its promotions since Marriott announced its upcoming unified loyalty program. Just like it did back in May, Starwood is once again selling SPG points for 35% off when you purchase between 5,000-30,000 points. The discount is available now through July 20, 2018.
This is a terrific deal because SPG points are ridiculously useful and valuable. The combined Marriott/SPG loyalty program has an astronomical 45 airline transfer partners, offering a huge range of opportunities to use these points. The discount brings the price per point down from 3.5 cents to 2.22 cents.
You can get far more value than 2.22 cents per point when redeeming Starpoints for international First Class flights. For example, you can transfer 40,000 points to Asiana and book a one-way ticket in Lufthansa First Class between North American and Europe. That ticket normally sells for $8,000+ if you pay cash. Of course you can also use SPG points to book hotel stays at tons of luxury properties around the world.
The usual Starwood purchase restrictions apply. You can purchase a maximum of 30,000 SPG points per year and your account must be active for at least 14 days.
