Aside from our Fiji & Sydney trip in May, we’ll be having one more ‘big’ vacation in 2013.
Halloween in Oahu is supposedly epic and Justin has always wanted to experience it. So we’ll be going for a week in October!
We’ll be staying at the Westin Moana Surfrider at Waikiki Beach:
This will be our 2nd Starwood property stay. According to the spg.com website normal rates start from $350/night. EXPENSIVE.
But after using 28,800 Starwood points our rate will be $90/night. Some extra fees will be tacked on (sigh) but I’ll take a 50%+ discount for a property as nice as this! I remember seeing this hotel on our first Oahu trip in 2011 and I thought it was SO beautiful… and now we’ll actually be staying there! I recently completed the minimum spend for the Starwood AMEX Business card so the 25K points I got funded most of this hotel stay.
I also booked 2 tickets through Alaska Airlines using 50,000 British Avios points. (Thanks to the Chase British Airways card). The final cost out of pocket was $60 for the two of us. Sweet deal.
Has anyone been to Hawaii during Halloween? If so, let me know!
