- 230K UR and a CSR.
- 40K SPG and
- 55K MR when I meet MS.
- 21K IHG
Spouse is planning to get:
- 55K+80K UR points as she’s at 0/24 in mid April, so will hit Chase and Business CC’s- open to anything which helps with this trip most.
- 40K SPG
Epic road trip coming up: Leaving from SLC through Rushmore, then:
- Sioux Falls (7K SPG 1.6 cpp),
- Chicago (12K SPG 2.2 cpp),
- Dayton (20K IHG .7 cpp),
- Pittsburgh (10K SPG 3.4 cpp),
- Hershey (25K IHG .6 cpp).
I’m going to be in NYC July 21 to Aug 7 (17 nights). I am thinking the first week (through 28) at hotels near MSG, then Brooklyn AirBnB for the rest, unless there’s some good redemptions… which is why I need your wisdom.
For NYC, converting UR to Hyatt, I found 5 nights at 25K Hyatt Centric Times Square for 1.4 cpp and 2 nights in ADA room for 30K at Park Hyatt which looks like 2.58 cpp.
Returning from DC (12K SPG 2.4 cpp x 2 nights) through:
- Roanoke (4K SPG 4 cpp),
- Memphis (4K SPG 2 cpp),
- Amarillo (20K IHG .6 cpp),
- Phoenix (4K SPG 1.5 cpp) to San Diego.
I’m flexible on return cities- trying to do about 10 hours of driving a day. I’d like to use redemptions for these stays. I used awardomatic to find a quick guess of the cost, so the total would be: 65K SPG, 65K IHG, 185K UR. I am not getting near value on most of these redemptions.
