I came across the Hilton 50% sale and that got me thinking.

Few weeks ago, I used my all of my 120,000 points to book a room in a resort that would cost me $465 incl tax for the same # of days with the sale.

So, what is a better deal ? I don't mind using my points, but now my Gold Status has 0 points. Paying for it would also give me the 1k bonus points + the 25% bonus for Gold.

I have two more days left to cancel the award reservation, so appreciate any advice. Thanks!

Here's the official thread on this topic over at Flyertalk:


If you have an AMEX card 125K points gets you four nights at a Cat 6 hotel with AXON code so it could easily be converted to 4 x $200/night = $800 stay. Lower Cat properties give discounted redemptions for 5-6 night stays for example a 6 night cat 4'stay is 135K points.

So I would pay for the stay and collect the points.

I have 2013 reservations for the Casa Marina in Key West for fantasy fest and Grand Wailea in Maui which are both the equivalent of 100 points per $1.00 vs. your $0.40.

THat is really helpful. Any info on how effectively spend Marriot rewards? I have ard 150 points. I did see giftcards, but I make ard only 600-700$ gc

I've got a $200/night room for 17000 points, which is decent value. The minimum value should be around 1/3-cent per point.

If you get the Citi reserve Hilton card you get gold status for $95 per year, so I would not concider your status as a factor

true, but that requires a credit check. Doing a refi, so trying to minimize impact to credit.

So, what'd you do?
