This great offer from American Express for their Starwood card expires March 31, 2015. You currently get 20,000 points (usually the offer is just 10,000 points).
This card is one we always try to use as these points are worth at least 4 cents to us (giving us a 4% cashback on when we redeem them).
We just got back from Sydney where we redeemed 40,000 points for 5 free nights at a Four Points by Sheraton where the rooms run around $400 during the peak season.
Starwood let you redeem 4 nights and you get the 5th night free!
Basically, a value of $2000 for hotels that was saved for just using a smart redemption and combining our points (my wifes and mine).
There is a $120 annual fee with this card but remember that you can combine points in one account within a household.
With our referral link you could earn a bonus offer of 20,000 Bonus Starpoints when you charge $1,000 in purchases to your Card in the first 3 months of card membership.
These points are perfect for free nights at Starwood hotels around the world:
Stay at the Walt Disney World Swan or Dolphin (onsite hotels at Disney World) for 10,000 Starpoints per Night. A family can stay at one of Disney’s high-end hotels for 5 nights for 40,000 points.
Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel (we are headed there soon at only 12,000 Starwood points per night).
The Park Lane Hotel, London for 12,000 Starwood points. Usually 500 pounds per night!
This is a steal (my hometown city) for just 7,000 points stay at the gorgeous Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa.
I just wanted to share some great hotels you can stay at relatively inexpensively using points so you can have a nice family holiday this summer and you don’t need to break the bank to do it!
Disclosure: If you get accepted for the card through this link, I get 10,000 points for the referral in my account. I appreciate your support of the blog.
