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.
