SPG and Total Rewards celebrate their partnership by throwing a VIP weekend in Las Vegas with a blackjack tournament on February 21-23, 2014, for 15,000 Starpoints.
The package includes:
– Accommodation for two at Paris, Planet Hollywood or Caesars Palace
– Taste of Caesars Reception on Friday
– SPG members after hour reception on Friday at Nobu
– Blackjack tournament for two (price 1,000,000 Starpoints)
– Show tickets for two for Britney, Jersey Boys or Celine Dion
– Sunday brunch for two
The price is only 15,000 Starpoints that is exception value.
You can extend your stay for two days prior and/or after the event for $105 per night at Caesars, $75 per night at the Planet Hollywood or $85 per night at the Paris.
You can access Starwood Moments web page for this offer here. I wouldn’t be surprised if it sells out quickly.
This is a very good offer for 15,000 Starpoints and, if you are good at blackjack, you may leave Las Vegas with 1,000,000 more Starpoints.
