Is there any way to get spa treatments for cheaper than their regular rates (GCs, or any other way)?
I like vanilla but my name is Venilla.

Any way to get SNA certs other than status earned by actually staying 50 nights?

Nope only platinums with 50 nights get them.
But if you know someone who's platinum you can stay under their account and use their SNAs.

I thought they could only be used on their stays - I guess maybe you could do the same thing we do for selling hilton nights

Yeah, these things always just seemed a little iffy to me-if it backfires would be a huge PITA if I've got my whole family with me - also may be an issue depending on room occupancy limits.

Anyway that aside, if anyone with SNA is interested in selling them PM me with an offer - curious what the going rate is...

They indeed accept SNA's. You can also just book a suite using 20k points a night.

Would if I could - don't have enough Starwood points.
Don't understand how people racked up so many- churning hasn't worked for me on that card

The $110 earns 4ppd if you're Platinum 75 and another 2ppd if you pay with your Amex SPG card.

You can use a SNA.
