    Using the iPhone app, many hotels in London have award nights available through August 4, 2012. The online sights only seem to be available through July 29. The awards that I looked at appear to be fully cancelable as well

    That's amazing!
    My network was looking for a simple two rooms for the duration of the games & they were all either extremley expensive (ie. 300gbp+ per night) or not available.

    Also - all Holiday Inns & HIEs were fully reserved for use by Olympic Committee sponsors.

    Where did you find these at?

    I have 9 nights now booked at the Indigo Tower Hill, through 4 August. These are £500+ per night rooms. Amazingly, cancellation is the usual 6pm previous night. I smell an error, given the number of award nights available.

    Mjones - as you can buy 25k for $150, that is the way to go. Do it now because they will go quickly when generally available next week.

    Thanks so much for this tip.
    It can potentially save us a few hundred thousand dollars!

    I just tried to purchase points and they were selling for $312 for 25,000.
    Where do you see 25,000 for $150?
    Thanks.

    You need 5k to start. Book a random 15k hotel for points and cash, it will be 5k plus $60. Then cancel the room, all 15k ponts return to your accont instantly. Repeat as required.
