 also the same applies to using ones pts for a free hotel night. I only view my savings as what I would have been willing to pay for  a Room. So since Id never go and reserve a Suite at full rate, I never will say I saved whatever the rate for a suite is/was, if somehow I was able to get 1 using my pts. Nor what the reg rate is if ordinarily I wouldnt have paid that rate but would have stayed elsewhere.

  The rate on room the past 2 nights was just under 500 GBP or appx $800. If Ididnt use my Marriott Euro Hooper(they dont exist but for 150k in MR pts you were able to stay at any Hotel inEurope for 7 nights certs were 2-2-3 nights each). The Hotels I chose were reg 40k per night so I got them for appx 1/2 off. Had it not been for these certs no way would I stayed DownTown so I dont see that I saved $800 a night but more like $70 what a B&B up in Golders Green would have cost me

 True it was much better being DT but $$ wise I didnt save $800 per night since I Never would have spent that kind of $$ when alternatives exist elsewhere

Others will say they saved $3200 (4 nights) Ok let them but they really are only fooling themsleves unless they on a reg basis actually spend that kind of $$ on Hotels, I dont nor do I ever plan to
