It was 2 days ago from Marriott. I made the mistake of thinking they could extend the duration of the hold based on a few variables that ended up being false.

I bought the remaining 13k points at 3cpp from the TK website and ended up booking the reservation. I'm working with an infant reservation and will update ya'll with a trick to getting it done (if it works out tomorrow).

Is there a way not to get charged for the compulsory X-mas dinner at SR?

Nothing unusual for me, I average hundreds of award redeposits per year.
Booking is half the fun :)
