Unfortunately, "We don't currently have offers in... for these specific dates". I visited immediately after receiving the email and found availability but did not book immediately. A few of the options were average at best but a few of the options were better than average. The value of the point exceeded the value of the rooms.

Worked out to be a good value. $200 for two nights and 15,000 miles. The error message is a function of too many searches for one IP address. Connect via VPN and the search resulted in more results. The search function is a moving target of sorts as the options change with each search.

I jumped on this also. Was able to book 3 nights in Phnom Penh for 56k LM. Value of LM exceeded what I would usually buy them at.

I think the greater value is the miles earned, not the miles burned. I value 56,000 miles at $750 USA. I don't think booking hotel rooms with miles was discounted. Unclear if you earned 56K or burned 56K, regardless.

Sorry for the vagueness. This was for earning.

All in all I made 3 separate reservations for a total of 7 nights paying oop $1370 for a total of 88k LM earned.

At this juncture I am only hoping the (independent) hotels don't disappoint. If not for this promotion I would have gone the hilton/marriott route.

That reminds me. There was a promo last year about getting up to 15k* miles upon booking on Radisson hotels between august and september. I booked around that time and paid with my Visa/Lifemiles attached card and i never got those bonus miles. It was a year ago, but im sure the transaction is well recorded on both the CC statement and their system. Do you think there's any chance i could request and successfully get those miles?
