Some hotels for whatever reason do come up with crazy rates rather than say that the promo isn't available those days.

However, there are indeed some nice choices in there.

Can this rate be used to trigger the SPG Returning Rewards promo? Is it qualifying? Thank you.

Any paid rate (Cash & Points is an award) booked over a Starwood proprietary web site is considered to be eligible and therefore qualifying.

I am impressed. Sheraton Dubai Creek turns out AEd 1,950 prepaid LTO over AED 850 BAR. I am politely declining.

When I try to book through this link, my computer returns the message "Certificate error: navigation blocked. There is a problem with this website's security certificate." I've never seen this message on spg.com.

I have the same and use Firefox to over-ride. That odd domain which runs the promo needs some TLC.

Dear William,

This link is taking me to what looks like the regular SPG page, but when I search, I get no 30% off prices, only the prices I saw before using this link.

Please advise if this link should still work.

Thanks!

+1 you ain't kidding, piece of junk.

I was able to save $20 on an existing rate I had, other rates were....how to politically say......not so good, as well as the lack of properties I wanted to see.
