Just 5,000 Starwood Points + $75 Can Get You a Stay at Fantastic Category 4 Starwood Hotels!

For instance, the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver can cost ~$300 per night.  Instead you could use 5,000 Starwood points + $75 for your stay.  So 5,000 Starwood points saves you ~$230 (~$300 regular cost of room – $75 cash) per night.

And the 30,000 Starwood points you earn with the AMEX Starwood personal or the small business card, plus $75 per night is enough for 6 nights at the Westin Bayshore and other category 4 Starwood hotels (30,000 Starwood points / 5,000 points per night)!

Which means in this case you could save ~$1,380 (6 nights x ~$230 in savings per night)!

Two round-trip flights to Orlando can cost ~$800.  And a 5-night stay at the Aloft Downtown Orlando could cost ~$1,600.

  1. I applied for both cards and while the consumer card got approved the business is pending and they want me to call them for further information. What do they want to know? What’s the best answer why I applied for both cards?
    Thanks

  2. @Franz – Sometimes they just want to know a little bit more about your business, i.e. the nature of your business, how long the business has been active, income, etc. Or they may just want to verify some information.

    You might be asked why you applied for the business card. For example, did you apply because you wanted to keep your business expenses separate for tax purposes or because you like the Sheraton lounge access that comes with card?

  3. Hi Daraius 🙂
    I am new to the miles & points thing. We are trying to plan a honeymoon trip from west coast (SFO/SJC) to Paris next year. in May 2016. For our first batch of cards, we are considering each will get the AA Citi Advantage, and the SPG card before its 30k miles bonus end on 9/14 and get 60k miles to book flights on AA. However, we dine out quite a bit, and know that the Chase Sapphire Rewards is a great travel card too. We know That one only transfers to United Airline and requires $4k spending, which also means we need to get the United Mileage Plus to go with United miles. We’re afraid its a bit too much to have both SPG & Chase sapphire at the same time (as we dont’ want to abuse MS spending too much). Our question to you: 1) which one would you rather get first? SPG or Chase Sapphire? 3) Which airline: United or AA have better rewards redemption for economy (meaning require low mileage & good on availability) to get from West Coast to Paris; 3) If we wait to get the Chase Sapphire card in our 2nd batch (which is another 3, 4 months) – what are our chances of approval? ( i heard Chase is pretty tough these days with the rule of if u have more than 4 cards open in the last 24 months, they won’t approve u). Our credits both in the 700-730 range across all 3 bureau.

    Thank you so much! sorry for so many questions 😛
