  4. @SB. Thanks
    If these details are correct, it looks like the free nights will be a disappointment compared to last year’s stay 3 get 1 free promo!
    I think given this scenario, I’d go with the Starpoints bonus

  5. that post is a hoax…. rumor mill

  6. 6 nights/3K points is 500 points/night. Given that, it’s entirely possible that triple points after 15 nights will be the best deal here, depending on what they base “triple” on (just single base points, or tripling the 2 points/$ base for Platinums, etc.). As always, the devil will be in the details…

  7. Looks like Gary has also posted about this today on View from the Wing

    Even if it’s just speculation…it’s getting some good traction.

  8. @Jamison – maybe…maybe not….that’s why it’s speculation

  9. fwiw. Here is another vote to ditch white text on black background.
