I'm almost afraid to ask questions,
Don't be, we were all beginners at one point whether or not we admit it (except me of course   )

Lol. You may regret that. However, unless there's a time constraint I'll always try to research first. There's just certain things it's hard to find information about and other things that are utterly confusing no matter how often I read a thread and try to organize bits of data. Plus the rules change and often its difficult to ascertain what information is up to date when going through old threads.

We recently booked at a non chain hotel in Germany where hubs family is from. After communicating back and forth with them about rooms and rates, found out 4th night with Prestige is free if you go through conceriage service. I reserved first 4 nights, hubs last 5 nights since we each have our own card.

Just booked 5 nights in a 1-BR villa at the Westin Lagunamar, Cancun, mid-February next year. Total cost: 58,000 Starpoints. That works out to 14,500 SPG per night, plus the fifth night free, thus averaging out to 11,600 SPG/night.  For some reason -- and I'm not complaining -- they must consider February "low season."  My SPG account confirms that assumption, as the description of the point withdrawal says, "CAT 5-SPCLTY SELECT-5NT-LOW." 

Get 'em while they're hot! (Before it goes up in category on Tuesday.)
