Book Tier 7 Awards With Tier 6 Pricing!
Marriott has let us know that we can book level 7 Starwood properties at level 6 point redemption levels between August and December 2018. For ease of discussion, let’s talk Starwood points. This means that a property that currently costs 35,000 points will cost 20,000 points during that window. Marriott equivalents are 105,000 and 60,000.
Here is a list of the category 7 properties.
Category 7 consists of Starwood’s uber hotels and resorts offering awe-inspiring surroundings in some of the world’s most spectacular destinations. Depending on the season, you will need 30,000 or 35,000 Starpoints® per night for a free night in a standard room at a Category 7 hotel.
Like racking up the Points?
Consider these offers to earn more Starpoints, the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express. If you are short on elite status, consider the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from Amex which gives 5 elite qualifying nights, and 2 stay credits just for having the card. The Platinum Card from American Express offers complimentary annual SPG Gold status just for having the card, so that is something else to consider. You should also consider the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card – Learn More Here.
This is a great deal for those heavy in points looking to book at one of these amazing properties for less!
