Right, but two one way awards should price out at 70k each, regardless if one goes thru Europe and one goes over the pacific. There should have been no need to make RGN-BKK-CDG-EWR-IAH two...

Thanks everyone.

Nope. No long connections.

You don't happen to know the place in the routing rules to which I should have him refer an agent to get it corrected, do you? He already booked it, and now he has to...

Mine's the following:

One free night every other stay, up to two free nights. Cat 1-5 certs, which is unusual.

Award Availability Shenanigans

I know that there have been several posts about this in the past, but I just thought I'd solicit an opinion.

I've never used the Hertz certificate that comes with the award. The benefit is that one airline mile is more valuable than one Marriott point, and the ability to convert points to miles at a 1:1...

They're offering my wife the opportunity to buy up to Silver (3k/3eqs) for $498, so it's not limited to those over 85k. It looks like it's for anyone that is within 15k/15eqs of any tier.
