Now is the time to buy points in the world’s largest hotel portfolio with a 30% discount. Last year Starwood and Marriott hotels completed their merger crating a hotel group with over 5,700 properties, in over 110 countries, trading as 30 different hotel brands, creating a total of 1.1 million guest rooms. Starpoints, the currency of the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) loyalty scheme can now be instantly transferred into Marriott Rewards, and vice-versa (1 Starpoint = 3 Marriott Rewards points). If you need to top-up either a Starwood or Marriott balance then you can currently get a 30% discount purchasing Starwood SPG points. These points can then be used to redeem free nights at Starwood properties, or even Marriott properties if you purchase and then transfer points.
To earn the maximum discount of 30% you need to purchase a minimum of 5,000 Starpoints. The discount amount vary on the amount of Starpoints you purchase.

- Buy 15,000 – 19,500 Starpoints and receive a 20% discount
