Hey, it'd be ~$40 for the points, plus a cup of hotel coffee thrown in for free! (And, actually, a $5 Starbucks card if you do a Sunday - Thursday night stay, if that's your chosen Extras option.)

That's extremely common for almost all of these promotions (and even to earn points at all within that hotel's chain.) It's an incentive to book direct, so they keep the full booking cost instead of...

Yeah, there's no benefit to this if you have any of the fee Delta AmEx cards. The 20% rebate means that 8 $9-priced drinks only cost $57.60, and Main Cabin 1 boarding is already included. That means...
