Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) members can earn 250 bonus Starpoints per stay and get two sodas by booking a special rate plan at Four Points hotels in the Americas and the Caribbean for stays between May 1 and July 15, 2014. You must book by June 30.
The bonus Starpoints rate plan seems to be tied to the Best Available Rate (BAR) and you should check all the rates so that you are not overpaying for bonus points and two sodas.
You can access SPG’s website for this offer here.

The bonus points rate seems to be the same as the Best Flexible Rate. Unless someone else is picking up the tab, I would probably book one of the discount rates by myself and pocket the difference.
This rate offer will work best when there are no discount rates available for booking. Just make sure that you are not overpaying for points and make sure that you choose the bookings engine to show all the rates.
