Starpoints for 2.3 cents or Airlines Miles for 1.82 cents
There has been much discussion about the new Marriott and Starwood combined program. Let’s not go there. Instead, let’s focus on a great deal to purchase Starpoints to convert into Airline Miles. I’m sure most of already know that 20k SPG = 25k Airline miles, and they have a long list of partners. You can purchase 30k miles per account, per year, and your account has be at least 14 days old. But, remember, if you live in the same household, you can combine your SPG points with another person. So technically, a couple could buy 30k points each, transfer into one account, and convert the 60k SPG into 75k Airline Miles. That’s a spectacular deal. Of course, as I always say, don’t do this speculatively, but if you have a redemption in mind – this is a great offer!
The cost breakdown:
In case you’ve forgotten the transfer partners
One of the best uses is to transfer to Alaska. You could redeem it for Cathay Pacific First Class (feature pic) or Qantas First Class for just 70k miles or $1274.
