500 Bonus Starpoints For Making A Cash & Points Booking (Targeted)

The SPG Dashboard is a pretty useful site you can use to access the offers available to you through SPG. It shows your progress towards earning status, how many points you’ve earned through promotions, etc. On top of that, it shows you both global and targeted promotions available to you.

With that in mind, it looks like Starwood has just introduced a new targeted promotion, though it seems to be pretty widely targeted. All the SPG accounts I have access to seem to show this on their dashboard.

If you’re targeted, Starwood is offering 500 bonus Starpoints when you make and complete a Cash & Points booking by September 11, 2016.


Bonus points should be posted to your SPG account within two to four weeks of the eligible stay. If you’re targeted, you don’t have to register for the promotion.

Cash & Points is one of the best uses of Starpoints, so this makes such a redemption even better. I value Starpoints at ~2.2 cents each, so to me 500 Starpoints are worth ~$11. That’s not anything massive, but it’s a nice bonus if you’d make a stay anyway, and in some cases could even sway the value proposition of a specific stay.

As a reminder, Starwood’s points redemption rates are as follows:

As you can see, Cash & Points bookings start at just 1,500 Starpoints plus $30 per night, so through this promotion your out of pocket for a one night stay at a Category 1 property could be just 1,000 Starpoints plus $30.

Cash & Points bookings at Le Meridien Marrakech cost just 1,5000 Starpoints + $30 per night

Were you targeted for 500 bonus Starpoints for making a Cash & Points booking?

(Tip of the hat to LoyaltyLobby)


  1. I’m a plat 75 and wasn’t targeted — in fact, I haven’t been targeted for anything recently. It’s frustrating that SPG so frequently specifically does not target their best customers for these promotions.

  2. Can you use this deal more than once? I wonder if you can book separately (say, a three-night stay and get 1,500 points total bonus), and then merge the bookings…

  3. I just looked at about 7-8 different hotels and none of them had cash & points rates available. Grrr.

  4. Didn’t get this offer. But did get an offer for 100 points for bidding on any SPG Moments auction.

  5. Lifetime Platinum member. Not targeted on any promotions since I lost the 75 status and my ambassador.
    Booked 3 Cash & Points stays this month, but no Bonus points, and no points for the 900$ spent on the 5 nights cash part 🙁
