Also, one more question. If anyone got 7/3 (anniversary) and is looking to sell please PM me. Is this allowed by forum rules?

Yes, this is the regular all year around offer, if approved.

I assume I have to actually book the reservation for the 2k starpoints?

Id imagine that if you are spending 1K on a suite, you might not care to shop around. Almost like the people who buy mattresses from Sleepys at full price.

Does anyone have a copy of the T&C? I need it to fight against my denial. I used this site and they said it's not valid since they need to call to get the rate (it's not printed on their website):
