Starwood points are some of my favorite hotel points!
It’s time to celebrate Free Money Friday.

Marriott and Starwood. You can link your Starwood and Marriott accounts and transfer the points between them. 25,000 Starwood points will become 75,000 Marriott points.
Match Points. If you opened this card recently with a lower offer, you may be able to earn some extra points by requesting a match to the current offer. Sometimes they’ll give you some extra points and sometimes they won’t. I called yesterday, but wasn’t successful in getting the match.
Free Hotel Nights. You can use your Starpoints at 1,200 hotels in nearly 100 countries worldwide. There are no blackout dates.
Free Flights. You can redeem Starpoints on over 350 airlines with SPG Flights. There are no blackout dates.
Earning Points. You’ll earn up to 5 points per dollar spent at SPG hotels and 1 Starpoint for all other purchases.
Transferring Points. My husband and I combine our Starwood points to redeem them. It’s quick to transfer points to others in your household.
Referrals. You can receive 5,000 Starpoints for referrals, up to a maximum of 55,000 Starpoints per calendar year.
Increased Bonuses. Starwood sometimes bumps up the bonus to 30,000 points during the summer; they increased the bonus to 35,000 during the spring the last two years for a few weeks.
