SPG points vs Pay quick question
« on: July 09, 2014, 06:55:39 PM »
Can anyone answer me real fast if it's worth giving my daughter somewhat more than $100 for a room or 4,000 points for a room. WHich is the better choice. Thanks

4k isn't worth $100.

So you think I should get the room for the 4,000 points and NOT pay the $100. (Sorry, I'm a little slow tonite)

You might even wanna add your name to the reservation so it should count towards status.

I did. Both our names are on the reservation but she's the only one going. What status are you referring to?

If you recommend booking an award night then why should he put his name on the reservation?  Do award nights count towards status?
