One Day Remains for Potentially Final SPG Points Buy Offer

by Shelli

Time is running out! Starwood Preferred Guest is back with their offer to buy SPG points for a 35% discount and it runs through May 31, 2018. Recently, we’ve all been thinking about how those of us who hold SPG cards will benefit or lose benefits now that Marriott’s plans for the SPG program start in August. And one thing I think we’ve all learned from the blending of the programs is to maximize our opportunities before they disappear. Though for now the programs do remain independent, buying SPG Starpoints could be one of those fading opportunities.

But there is still time to enjoy a 35% savings on Starpoints right now! Over the years I’ve been a buyer of Starpoints and have always, whether using them for hotels or transferring them to airlines to book award flights, gotten greater value out of the points than the cost to purchase them. If you are looking to make some Starwood reservations and need to top off your account, or if you have a paid stay coming up, check out this opportunity to purchase Starpoints at 35% off.

Save 35% On SPG Starpoints

With 35% off, points will cost you 2.275 cents per point when you purchase them.

There’s always been great value in SPG points, and many would say come August that value increases. Since SPG points transfer to Marriott points in a 3:1 ratio, this is also the equivalent of buying Marriott points at 0.76 cents a piece. And, with many different airline transfer options, you’ll still be able to convert your SPG points into airline miles at a 1:1 ratio, with a 5,000 mile bonus every 20,000 SPG points you transfer.

Bottom Line

SPG points are definitely some of the most valuable points around. Seeing if you can save money with the promotion on hotel stays you’re already planning could work out when you have the Starpoints. You can buy SPG points with a 35% discount here.

This promotion runs through May 31, 2018, so there is still time to take advantage of it. SPG allows members to buy up to 30,000 points per calendar year. They allow you to transfer points between household members who have the same address for at least 30 days. Always make math your friend and if you’ve got some redemptions in mind, see if it’s worth purchasing some points.

Will you be picking up some final SPG points with this 35% off sale? I already purchased mine!
