This coming Monday, May 3, Starwood will be taking part in the first ever industry-wide travel promotion to support the U.S. Travel Association. What does that mean for us? Well, on Monday, May 3 at 10AM, they’ll be offering the opportunity to buy 10,000 Starpoints for $145, with a limit of five sets per person. So that means you could potentially buy 50,000 Starpoints for $725. Given that you can convert those 50,000 points into at least 60,000 miles, that’s just a bit over a cent per mile for transfers into a variety of programs. Not too shabby at all!
The catch, however, is that quantities are very limited. Only 470 are available. Still worth trying if you have the cash, though.
