In case you didn’t know, I love Hawaii AND I am a miles and points junkie AND I ♥ FREE!

This is my latest deal that I want to share with you.

The Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) American Express Card is the signature credit card for Starwood Hotels which includes Sheraton, St. Regis, W Hotels, Westin, Element, Four Points, aloft and The Luxury Collection.  There are properties throughout the US and the world.

When you apply for and are approved for the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express Card you will receive

  • 25,000 Starpoints after you make $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of Card Membership

It is fee FREE for the first year as well.

So, I got my SPG Amex Card a few months back and have been charging EVERYTHING on it. My goal was to reach 40,000 miles.  I DID IT!

Now comes the fun part – FREE Hotel Nights!  That combined 25,000 points + 15,000 points for my purchases and hotel stays(total of 40,000) will earn me 5 FREE Nights at the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay!  It’s a direct oceanfront hotel.  The room is normally $223 per night so it’s worth well over $1,000 and I’m staying for FREE!  Crazy Cool!

Look at this place – that’s the Sheraton Kona


There are a ton of places that I could have chosen to stay FREE for 5 nights instead including

  • W San Diego
  • The Westin Denver Downtown
  • Walt Disney World Dolphin or Swan in Orlando, Florida
  • Le Méridien Dallas, The Stoneleigh
  • Element Las Vegas Summerlin

Even International Hotels

  • Sheraton Beijing Dongcheng Hotel
  • Sheraton Fiji Resort
  • Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Darling Harbour
  • Aloft London Excel

There a many to choose from – check out the list
