Are you certain? My understanding is that you don't receive elite benefits, or earn points, for 3rd party bookings. I know it to be the case with Expedia but I have no experience with Costco and...

IME, if a drop of rain hit your plane a week ago, they’ll call it WX. YMMV.

No, we weren’t alone on that trip. All three bedrooms are good size with nice, private bathrooms. The master is definitely bigger though.
