Better Late Than Never — SPG 50% Off Redemption

This SPG platinum-lite member (I requalified for platinum status through “Stays Count Double” promotion) returned home from a Colorado trip to find an invitation in my mailbox. “Sample the world. For half the Starpoints.”

The 50% off a Category 1-5 hotel stay is appreciated, but the timing is rather late.

I have to make a confirmed reservation within the next 10 days by March 3, 2008 for a hotel stay to be completed by May 31, 2008. Fortunately, this frequent guest is fairly flexible and efficient at vacation planning. There is a 6-night award stay limitation (last year I was able to book a 9-night award with the half Starpoints offer).

SPG Platinum Elite

St. Regis Singapore, Sheraton Noosa Australia, or Luxury Collection Arabella Western Cape and Spa, Hermanus, South Africa…so many choices.

200,000 Mexicana airmiles and a 50% Starpoints award provides numerous combinations for a Loyalty Traveler vacation extravaganza on the cheap.
