    I needed to book a room at one of the participating ICs

    so I used the Emirates link that was only advance pay for USD 269 nightly

    then I used my normal flexible booking for USD 164 nightly, same hotel, same room

    paying for a bonus is really not an attractive offer and in the end, an insult to members intelligence :confused:

    Paying for bonuses is just a scam to lure business travelers who do not pay out of their own pockets.

    Actually (and I might be naive and unique), I do go for the Double Points rate occasionally under the HHonors program (opps... "Wrong" thread) when I travel out my own pocket e.g. Family vacations and Staycations.
