    Including my SPG AMEX, Platinum amenity, and all the current promotions etc, I've recently been earning 16.75 Starpoints per dollar on weekend nights, which I think is pretty good, but I'm relatively new to the points game. What is the highest number of Starpoints per dollar you've ever earned? Do you always pay cash when the Starpoints per dollar ratio meets a certain threshold?

    I've been getting 16 cents on a $205 rate the following way:
    Hotel specific bonus: 1000
    Welcome amenity: 500
    Grand Weekend bonus: 500
    Base points: 410
    SPG Amex: 410
    Great Weeks: 410
    Elite Bonus: 205
    Total = 3435 / 205 = 16.75
