Helping Friends Using My Points

One of my friends was moving back to Houston and needed a place to stay while he got situated with his living arrangements. Given that I have enough Club Carlson points to spare, I was able to get him a room for 5 nights and the Park Inn, a Cat 1 hotel in Houston. This only costed me 36k points since I was able to get the last room free because I’m a CC holder.


The hotel was recently renovated in 2011 and included free internet, complimentary breakfast and an outside pool and gym…all a guy needs! This saved him at least $100 per night and of course he was very grateful for the help.

I think vacationing for almost free is awesome but helping a friend out using miles or points just gives you the warm fuzzies 🙂

  1. Moving to a new town is always challenging. And, one of the few Park Inn’s in the US too…great redemption!

  2. A true friend indeed!! Thanks for posting this!

  3. This room looks much better than the two Park Inns that I have stayed in. Do not ever stay at the Park Inn near the Montreal Airport~
