Million Mile Secrets readers are the best!  To thank you, Emily and I are giving away 9,000 Starwood points!

Blog Giveaway 9000 Starwood Points
Starwood Points Are on Sale! Use Them to Fly to a Beautiful Island – or for Hotel Stays Once You’re There!

I’ll show you how to enter!

Through June 30, 2017, you’ll get 35% off when you purchase (or gift!) 5,000+ Starwood points.

With the 35% savings, you can buy 20,000 Starwood points for $455.  You can transfer those points to a Starwood airline partner at a 1:1 transfer ratio, and receive a 5,000 mile bonus!  So this is like buying airline miles at rate of 1.8 cents each ($455 / 25,000 airline miles).

You can use 25,000 miles for a round-trip coach ticket within the US on airlines like American Airlines and Delta.  So if $455 is LESS than the cash price you’d pay for a ticket, this deal would make sense.

Enter this contest for a chance to win 9,000 Starwood points!

How to Enter

Link:   Click on this post and tell me the highest value you’ve redeemed Starwood points for

Starwood points are very flexible.  You can use them for lots of things, like hotels, flights, and Amtrak!

I want to know the most money you’ve saved with Starwood points.  What’s the best value you’ve received from them and how?  Or, if you haven’t redeemed Starwood points yet, what would you like to spend them on?

For example, I used 4,000 Starwood points to stay at the ITC Rajputana, a room that costs ~$130 per night, for a value of ~3.25 cents per point ($130 stay / 4,000 Starwood points)

Team member Keith used 120,000 Starwood points to stay 5 nights at the St. Regis Bali, which would have otherwise cost $4,205, giving him a value of ~3.5 cents per point ($4,205 stay / 120,000 Starwood points).

And team member Joseph transferred 20,000 Starwood points to Korean Air for a round-trip coach ticket from Cincinnati to Maui, a ticket that would have cost $1,000+, giving him a value of ~5 cents per point ($1,000 flight / 20,000 Starwood points).

You MUST click this linked post & comment with your answer on that post (don’t comment on this post!).

You can also complete as many of the other tasks as you want.  You’ll get 1 entry for each item you complete.  But your entries only count if you complete the first step.  The more ways you enter, the more chances you have to win!

You can enter until June 18, 2017, (Sunday) at 9:00 pm Central Time.

Good luck!

I stayed at te Westin Cancun. 20k a night

I topped up for Alaska redemption on Cathay – great value for me.

I used 14k SPG points for an upgraded room at Le Meridien Ra Beach in Spain that cost $450 EUR per night!

Just getting started with Starwood points with the business AmEx. Looking forward to the flexibility.

Redeemed for Hotel Marqués De Riscal in Spain (designed by Frank Gehry) at a value of approx $800/night.
