Title: Starpoint gift @ 50% discount - $525 for 30k
Post by: meraki1990 on November 04, 2016, 12:44:26 PM
Not trying to make money as I'm passing this on at 0 added cost - if you want to buy Starpoints at a discount with the current promotion of 25%-50%, and are not targeted for 50%, I can gift purchase Starpoints to your SPG account. (This is not against SPG's T&C as you can gift purchase these for any member, and I'm not selling the points that I currently have in my account.)

If you want less than 30k, specify the amount and I'll look it up and just pass on the exact price to you.

Disclaimer: I'm getting the points from this purchase from my CC, as I'm purchasing it with my CC and getting Paypal FF payments.

*Be sure that the account you're looking to get the points gifted has been a member for at least 14 days, and that the annual limit of 30k point purchase/gifted have not been met yet.

Bump, sold multiple, still available.

Account still showing 50% discount for gifting, I'll update when it drops.

People have been asking me for my rep, so here it is:

I used to be a moderator at NBR, with extensive sale histories of Macbooks, Dells, and computer parts.

I'm definitely interested. If we do this when could I expect the points, how many could I buy,  and will you be able to send me a propped PayPal invoice to keep things legit?

Points have been reported to be instantly available, but SPG states 24 hours, so YMMV.

I don't think personal PP has an invoice option. I've been burned by chargebacks after personal sales, and especially because this has no seller protection as nothing is being shipped, I prefer to keep it strictly to personal PP.

It's a trust aspect for both - I cannot cancel gifting points per SPG T&C, so I'd have to have assurance that the funds won't be clawed back as well.

On hold. Sorry to those who messaged me.

Can't seem to make purchases out of the 50% account any more, might be a glitch, need to wait for this to be solved before helping anyone else.

Says wrong credit card information when I know it's not the case.

You can only be gifted 30k total over the year, so no. You can always make another account and transfer through Marriott though. (Is that only free for gold members?)

Yup, 30k total to any account, gifted and purchased combined.

Marriott transfer also works, but $10 fee unless you are above Gold.

SPG household transfer works too but you have to have the same address on file for at least 30 days.

Can someone confirm - you can only transfer 50,000 Marriott per acct per year between people who are not in the same household. (50k in and 50k out - not combined)

You can pool points when you are making a high point reservation, then cancel it.

Sketchy way to do this, but it works.

Super fast transaction with meraki1990.   Thanks for the transaction and great savings on the points (my account was only targeted for 30%, so 50% discount was a great savings since I needed the points for an upcoming reservation).
