This extra Starpoints bonus is a great little bonus for doing the extra work of group bookings. At the same time, if you are planning an event or meeting at a Starwood property, definitely take a look at becoming a registered Starwood Preferred Planner so that you can get in on a signing bonus, 2% rebate on master-billed rooms, and your choice of a welcome bonus.
