1.   2,000 Starwood Points or 20% Off Starwood Best Rate Guarantee

Via One Mile at a Time, you can choose 2,000 Starwood points or a 20% discount if you find a lower rate within 24 hours of booking your room.

I value Starwood points at ~2 cents each so 2,000 Starwood points are worth $40.  So unless you’re paying more than ~$200 a night for your room it probably makes sense to choose the Starwood points.
