    Thought I'd pose a question to the group: what's the LEAST amount of points you've earned on a stay?

    I just had a stay post for a Candlewood Suites stay from last week. Room was only $60, for 1 night...I got a whopping 450 total points (including Plat bonus!) I guess I am lucky I am a Plat...

    No extras for me this time.

    Can anyone undercut that?! :D

    Candlewood Suites, janitors closet at $15 per night. Total points = 75.
    Not a bad rate, but people coming in to get mops and brooms all night was kinda crappy.

    Four Points in Chambersburg. $45.00 for the room 3 nights ago and a total of 260 points which included the elite bonus of 125 points. Fortunately this was just a mattress run.

    But those are STARWOOD points, infinitely more valuable than my lousy Priority Club points!

    I did have one sub-$40 stay at a Holiday Inn with the Entertainment Card; earning fewer than 450 PC points on a stay is hard - many of my reward nights have triggered promotions ...

    Zero for a non qualifying rate.

    Holiday inn express for $29 ended up with 450 points.

    Candlewood is like residence inn they give less points than the non-extended stay hotels. That's why I avoid them and favor HI express, etc. I really wish they would give normal points earnings the first night or two then tail off for those staying like 3 weeks as I do understand the business reasons.
