Using 50 Night Benefit for a SPG Brands Mattress for Asia

Is SPG Brands Mattress and Box Spring 40% Discount via the 50 Night Benefit - Starwood Preferred Guest worth it


Well, not quite as worth it as expected. As I was starting to accumulate nights in order to redeem a promo code to get a Sheraton Mattress and base, however, had a feeling that I really should check what the full process and costs would be like. So after simulating scenarios on their website, I realised that you need to manually reach out to the Sheraton team to use a promo code and also to get a quote for the shipping, taxes and customs costs (as the website doesn't process this information for you).

So after seeing the full costs, I am having second thoughts... In fact, I am most likely not staying at a Starwood hotel to work towards this anymore...  I'll be taking my Gold status to Marriott to enjoy my benefits there or perhaps explore the Hilton chain.

Update: 11/Jul/ 2017 - I decided to do a status match with the Hilton and start staying there

My intended purchase

Item: 180x200cm Queen Sized Sheraton bed
Delivery to: Singapore


Promotion: SPG Brands Mattress and Box Spring 40% Discount

The SPG Brands Mattress and Box Spring 40% Discount promotional code is valid on any SPG Brands mattress and box spring sold at westinstore.com, whotelsthestore.com, stregisboutique.com, luxurycollectionstore.com or sheratonstore.com.

Note - only westinstore.com, sheratonstore.com has an Asia Pacific store via their China English website (more details on their full terms around this promotion, pasted below).

Pros:


  • It's a King Koil Branded bed. King Koil has been in the business for years and makes quality beds
  • 40% discount on a good bed, is always a good deal, however, there are other fees to take note of, see below in "cons".

Cons:


  • No warranty, the "10 year manufacturer warranty" is voided, as soon as it is shipped out of China to another country, in my case Singapore. 
  • Delivery fee is 1500 USD per bed, although you could work out a freight forwarder to get a better deal?
  • GST fees is estimated at USD 521.38 for two beds so half that is USD 260.69 each bed and that's only an estimate
  • I see 

Here's direct feedback when I asked about a quote for a 180x200cm queen sized Sheraton bed.
