(UPDATE 5/30 – Reposting as the last day to get the 35% discount is tomorrow, May 31st)

No doubt Starwood is looking to capitalize on all the recent Marriott-SPG airtime lately.  Need some extra SPG in your wallet?  Buy Starpoints (or gift them) for 35% off now through May 31st.

Stop by this page to check out the offer.  You need to buy at least 5,000 Starpoints to get the 35% off promotional rate.  If we max out the deal, it’s 30,000 points for $682.50, or 2.275 cents per point.  You’ll pay the same rate whether buying points for yourself or someone else.

Even better, these purchases have always earned double SPG points on the AmEx Starwood Preferred Guest cards.  (Hopefully the new cards will continue to earn the extra points on purchases.)  Effectively, you’re netting 31,365 SPG points, bringing your cost per point down to 2.175 cents.  By stacking this promotion even further with TopCashBack (currently 1.5% back on SPG purchases) you’ll only pay $672.27, dropping your cpp to 2.143 cents.

Going to Buy Starpoints?

I am.  I love Starpoints.  For some upcoming travel, I’d like to redeem towards a Marriott Nights + Flights promo soon, and I consistently have the best hotel experiences with Starwood.  As a matter of fact, I’m writing this post sitting in my room in the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta!

(Counterpoint – is a devaluation on the horizon?)

Can you redeem SPG points for better than 2.143 cents?  Or, Marriott points for better than 0.714 cents?  Let me know what you decide!
