35% off SPG award stays at some super high end resorts
Starwood Hotels and Resorts (SPG) is trying to coax you into spending points at some of their fanciest properties by offering a 35% discount.
You can see all the deals below. On the surface, it seems like a great deal. But when you dig in a but, you may realize that these are mostly Category 7 resorts with such high standard redemption rates it’s hard to get a great deal – except maybe if you can find award availability at very peak times.
Using a random selection of dates and resorts, I was having a hard time beating 2 cents a point – and my threshold for redeeming SPG points is generally a bit higher than that.
However, if you redeem for 5 nights, the 5th night is free which sweetens the redemption value quite a bit.
If you’ve got a massive stack of SPG, it might be worth a look. Besides the Naka Island resort, the next cheapest 5 night stay would come in at 1560,000 SPG.
More info is here. To book, you’ll need to call in to 1-888-625-4988 or your elite member line.
