Hi everyone! I'm new to this world of points and miles, and dang there's a lot of stuff out there. I'm still trying to figure out what I can, sign up for award programs, etc. I don't have a lot of points accumulated anywhere really - 29k on AA, 22k on Delta, and my not much of anything for any at the hotels, but I'm ready to start filling them up. It kind of makes me sick at what I've lost through the years with work travel, personal travel, etc. Oh well, better get started..... My first question is about two single night hotel stays that I have coming up before the end of the month. We are headed out on vacation and will need a single night hotel stay on the way there and on the way back. I've looked at a lot of the promotions, and some don't start until Sept., some required registration back in the summer, some are consecutive two night stays, etc. My question is, what is the best thing going right now for this type of reservation? Airline miles, hotel points? Since I'm just now getting into these programs, I don't have a lot of targeted offers yet. I would be appreciative of any ideas. Thanks!
