So you want to use your points for a nice getaway, but you just don’t want to go through the hassle of checking all your accounts and scraping together enough miles and points to get the vacation you’re looking for? Starwood might have a solution to your problem. Nights & Flights awards allow Preferred Guest members to combine their Starpoints and miles in order to pay for a whole vacation package. Preferred Guest members can redeem 60,000 Starpoints for 50,000 airline miles and five free nights at a category 3 hotel or resort. With Nights & Flights II, members redeem 70,000 Starpoints for 50,000 airline miles and five free nights at a category 4 hotel or resort.
Nights & Flights awards must be ordered at least 30 days prior to arrival for a U.S. airline, and it is the member’s responsibility to make their own flight arrangements. Members are also responsible to provide any extra miles that may be required for a specific flight. Nights & Flights awards cannot be less than five nights and additional free nights are sold separately. Nights & Flights awards may only be booked by calling a local Preferred Guest Customer Contact center. For more information and a listing of local Customer Contact Centers, visit http://www.spg.com
If Nights & Flights awards fail to fit your situation, maybe you would like to take advantage of a 50-percent discount off regular rack rates at participating Starwood hotels. Preferred Guest members can redeem 1,000 points to get a 50-percent discount off regular rack rate at participating Starwood hotels for up to five consecutive nights. Rack Rate awards are subject to availability so plan ahead. Members can contact their local Preferred Guest Customer Contact Center to redeem points for the discount.
