Budget Savvy Luxury Vacation for Four

There’s nothing like making family memories during a great vacation, but traveling with a family of 4 can get very expensive between the airfare, hotel, rental car, and food. To save on vacation cost, my husband and I decided to try the Starwood’s American Express. How does this work? With every dollar you spend on the Starwood’s American Express earns points toward free nights at Starwood properties


In late winter, after earning enough Starwood points, I reserved a studio with a full kitchenette for four nights at the St. John, Virgin Island Westin resort. Reserving the studio room months before the vacation, provided enough time to set a flight price alert, landing plane tickets from Atlanta to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands at $240 each. The Island of St. John and the Westin resort was absolutely breathtaking! It was the mountains that surround the clear water left us captivated. Using the Starwood’s American Express during the year earns us enough points for a nice summer vacation. Starwood has more than 1,300 properties worldwide in 100 countries which provide more than enough options when selecting our next vacation.
