As a Starwood Preferred Guest member, you have a plethora of awards from which to select. But at some point you just have to ask yourself, ‘What am I in it for?’
If you’re saving in hopes of obtaining your dream vacation, you might want to utilize the Nights and Flights award option. This option allows you to redeem 60,000 Starpoints for 50,000 airline miles and five free nights at a Category 3 hotel or resort. With Nights and Flights II, you can redeem 70,000 Starpoints and you’ll receive 50,000 miles and five free nights at a Category 4 hotel or resort.
Some, however, prefer to burn as they earn.
Burn 1,000 Starpoints and you’ll receive 50-percent off a stay of five consecutive nights at any Starwood Hotel or resort. Also, room upgrades can be had for as little as 1,000 points.
If you’re a compulsive point-burner, the Preferred Guest instant awards are right up your alley. Just ask the front desk during check-in what instant awards are available at the hotel and you will be offered an array of options from a massage or spa treatment to dinners and discounts.
From high-end resort awards to instant awards, Preferred Guest members should be able to find an award that suits their desires.
