    I’m not so sure that low spend stays favor miles over points. Two consecutive low priced stays earn considerable bonus points. I can find great value in Choice reward night redemptions. Finding saver award availability with American Airlines has become increasingly problematic, at least on the routs that I’ve been flying and/or checking.

    routes, not routs … spelling error

    I agree with you Ron. I may change to miles for the first half of August, since the 8K promo will be over, and not likely to kick in again that soon.

    Personally I favor earning points over miles. I would choose miles if I only planned for one hotel stay during the promotion period.

    I regularly book $150 to $200 per night rooms at Nordic Choice Hotels in Scandinavia for 8,000 or 10,000 points per night.

    @ Ric

    Thank you for initially and repeatedly pointing that out. IMO, even staying at some Nordic Choice properties at higher point redemptions represents a great value, particularly if the points were acquired via bonus points promotions or Daily Getaway purchases.

    While our travel styles differ to some, not great, extent, I appreciate your blog and its emphasis on practical, non-extravagant travel that can be affordable for many.

    So many others choose to write about “aspirational” properties and flights, but not everyone aspires to travel that way even if they can afford to do so with money, points, and/or miles.
