    Nice job! The most I got was 25k on a single stay.

    This is the best way to make us spend money...what about the Big Win? I played the game, made several stays and now I am just missing one night to reach the total of 17 nights...but I am not going to pay one more night to simply get 12000 more points. I have decided to STOP.

    The Big Win was good for some people, but I think the general consensus was that high level people were targeted with lower offers... I know mine was only 55k points, even though I'm a Platinum, and some others were offered similar meager offers.

    By comparison a single night stay at the Tampa IC got me 32k points, so I'm not paying the Big Win requirements too much attention.

    That's the dilemma that I am facing right now.

    I am only short 2 stays which is a Saturday night stay and it has to be in two of the cities that I was offered.

    Do I want to spend $200ish for about 65k more points mhmm...

    Me thinks I should try because that's about 13 nights on a PointSaver Reward. :D

    That's true... or one night at a really, really nice IC which is worth well more than $200ish.

    I'm sitting on a nice stash of IHG points but the requirements to complete my particular Big Win are such that it wouldn't make sense for me to move around too much for "just" the balance. It would be different if they had offered me an extra 100k points or something, but it wouldn't be cost efficient for me to spend money to get my particular reward, so I gave up on it a while back. :)
