Sometimes Buying Points is the Better Deal

As a rule it usually is NOT in your favor to purchase points for a hotel stay.  Hotel and airline groups will swamp you with offers to purchase points.  Generally paying for the hotel is cheaper than buying points to cover the stay unless you are close to having enough points. BUT this week I came across a situation where it is much cheaper to purchase the points than to pay for the stay.

Choice Privileges is having a “members only madness week”. This week members can purchase points for 25% off.  Usually this is still not enough to encourage me to purchase except I remembered when looking for my next hotel stay that I had seen a Choice Hotel that was only 8,000 points for a weekend night this winter.  With this sale 8,000 points would only cost me $66.  The hotel I was looking at was going to cost me $220.83 total for the one night stay in a two queen room.

Also in the same city was the option for a hotel for 12,000 points that was a tick closer to the train station.  Those points this week would be $99 instead of $132 with the 25% off deal.  This hotel if you paid for it would be $282.78 for the date I need.  The 8,000 point hotel had good reviews and I am willing to walk the extra block or two to be at my destination so I went with that option.

Few people really want to brave the Midwest in cold temps so point values are down which can make for great redemption opportunities.

Choice Privileges® Reward Night Redemption


Nov 11, 2018 – Nov 30, 2018:
Sun – Thu 8000 /room
Fri – Sat 8000 /room
Dec 1, 2018 – Jan 31, 2019:
Sun – Thu 12000 /room
Fri – Sat 12000 /room
Feb 1, 2019 – Apr 15, 2019:
Sun – Thu 20000 /room
Fri – Sat 20000 /room

Wyndham Rewards Offer

Our biggest offer ever

Earn up to one free night at any of our 8,000+ hotels worldwide when you stay twice.* Register and book by June 30, 2018 and complete your second qualified stay by July 1, 2018 to get 15,000 bonus points that you can redeem for a free night* at Super 8, Ramada, Wyndham Grand, and more.

Not a Wyndham Rewards member? You can still book your stays now and register for the offer later.

*15,000 Wyndham Rewards points are good for one standard bedroom per night, subject to availability, blackout dates/rates and other restrictions.  Resort fees apply at Caesars hotels, even for award nights, and cannot be paid with points. See Promotion Terms & Conditions for additional information.

 

Stay twice for 15,000 points is a good promotion if you have lower cost hotels to book to earn the points.  Many Wyndham family hotels in our area are from $65 – $85 a night.

We have used Wyndham rewards points two ways.  #1 any hotel is 15,000 points so we cashed in 15,000 points for a night at the Mills House in Charleston.  Over the weekend rates can be around $270 so I was happy to use points instead.  #2 is a points and cash option.  We did this over Christmas break to spend three nights on Fort Myers Beach. 3,000 points and cash gave us a great vacation for a little money out of pocket.  Rooms again were running $270+ a night.  I do not have that kind of money to throw at a hotel room so I was thrilled to use points to offset the price.

You can register for the promotion here:  Register here
