Now’s a great time to be earning Starpoints. Although the future of the company and its beloved SPG program is up in the air as Marriott and Anbang continue their bidding war, Starpoints are still an extremely valuable currency. Earlier this month, SPG also announced the brand was launching a refer-a-friend promotion in which members could earn 1,000 bonus Starpoints if they referred a friend who then completes a stay within 60 days.

This week, we’re giving away 22,500 Starpoints to one lucky TPG reader. These Starpoints can be used to get to a destination on one of the program’s airline transfer partners or redeemed for free nights at one of Starwood’s properties, among other options. The 22,500 Starpoints have a retail value of $787.50, but thanks to SPG’s 25% off promotion, we were able to purchase the points for $590.62. This comes out to a value of 2.6 cents per point when purchased — just a tad above our 2.5 cent per point valuation.

Use your winnings to stay at the Westin Turtle Bay in Mauritius, a Category 4 property, for 10,000 Starpoints per night.
