Wow. Is this how much thought goes into every DDMS post?

Kept going back and forth on whether to tackle this topic.
What do you guys think?

Also, should I delete the Aniston video link and reference?
Thoughts on how I dealt with ilherman's post?

Rumor had it that Emirates had gotten fed up with people "using Alaska miles using their showers".

Doesn't sound right.

You can view credit card offers by clicking on the “Other Credit Cards” tab on top of the DansDeals banner to view links for card offers. You can click on the link that says “View all card offers by issuing bank” and scroll down to view all card offers from the bank of your choice.
Why shouldn't the "other credit cards" portion be a direct link? Just sayin

Maybe it's just me, who has no experience with hotel points.
1) Your list starting:
-You will get 132K miles if you choose to transfer the miles to United.
And following
Which points are you transferring? SPG or Marriot?
2) you then refer to the 7 night certificate, which was not mentioned previously in this post.

It's slightly confusing but it makes sense once you read the whole thing. It might make more sense to set it up like this: mention the nights+flights options which gives you a 7 night cert and a certain number of airline miles (detailed after the chart). Then have the chart detailing how many spg or Marriott points are needed, then list how many miles you'll get at each airline.

yes.
But after "The best value is the largest mileage option, though there are smaller mileage options as well." write:
"When you transfer {how many} {what type} miles:"
and then the rest will be crystal clear.

Nice fix.
And strongly recommending first reading the other posts on the merger was just what uninformed readers (like myself) needed.

Not necessarily.

They charge a pretty hefty resort fee ($50+/night IIRC) and when you book with cash most packages throw in some sort of resort credit which the points option does not.

It was a pretty poor value using points when I was looking.

Appreciate the help getting that post polished up a bit :)

Is there a typo in the last paragraph in this post? (Nothing instead of noting?)
