Expiration Date – April 21, 2016
Are you ready to try your luck in Vegas? Book award stays by April 21, to save 40% on Starpoints redemptions at any Caesars Entertainment hotel in Las Vegas through December 29, 2016!
And, because of your loyalty to Starwood, you’ll enjoy the VIP Vegas treatment too! The Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) and Caesars Entertainment partnership extends reciprocal benefits to the Elite members of both SPG and Total Rewards. You must first register to benefit and can read more about all the perks here - STARWOOD AND CAESARS PAIR UP.
Although you are eligible to redeem Starpoints for stays at participating Caesars Entertainment hotels, we do not usually suggest it and let us tell you why.
As you know from prior trvlvip Perks and Tips, we value SPG Starpoints at 2.2 cents per point, which is the value we would be willing to pay for Starpoints if we could buy them for cash. It is also the minimum value we feel you should expect before redeeming your points.
The number of Starpoints required for award stays at Caesars Entertainment hotels is typically very high compared to the cash rates. Casino hotels often have great sales on paid stays. This means the redemption (even when on sale) frequently yields a return that is much lower than 2.2 cents per Starpoint - often 50% lower!
To find out if a particular scenario is a good redemption deal follow these two steps:
Divide the total room rate, including tax, by the number of Starpoints required for the stay.
If the result is greater than 2.2 cents, go for it, but double-check your math because even with a 40% discount we often find that it doesn’t pencil out.
Phone redemptions will not be accepted. You should review the terms of the reservation carefully. The Starpoints you redeem for a stay include all taxes, but do not include resort charges.
If you crunch the numbers and find a great value for your Starpoints, go for it! It’s your lucky day! Go to Vegas, enjoy the VIP treatment, have a good time and stay lucky!
