Creative Ways To Buy Alaska & American Miles For Cheap

A few days ago I wrote about how Starwood’s 35% discount on purchased Starpoints expires on May 31, 2018.

Starwood ordinarily charges 3.5 cents per purchased Starpoint. If you max out this promotion you can buy up to 30,000 Starpoints at a cost of $682.50, which is a rate of 2.275 cents per Starpoint.

You can purchase a maximum of 30,000 Starpoints per account per calendar year, and accounts have to be at least 14 days old in order to participate in this promotion.

As I’ve explained, there can be value in this deal whether you want to redeem Starpoints for hotel stays, convert Starpoints into Marriott points at a 1:3 ratio, or convert Starpoints into airline miles.
