not a huge savings but a good one none the less.

thanks spg
Exactly. A normal five-night category 3, 4, 5, or 6 award saves you 20% in Starpoints. 25% off is still a bigger savings than 20% off, even though it's not 25% vs. 0%. @:-)

And you also need to do the math on a category 1 or 2 award to see which would come out better.
