  1. Which of the hotel chain points programs do you, personally, like best? For the value, as well as your enjoyment of the hotels themselves?

    Also, how do you value Hilton Honors points v United MP miles and AA miles? I just added Hilton to my miles and points programs (wondering if I made the right choice…just decided spontaneously after realizing they were the only chain with a hotel in Reykjavik), and am wondering if concentrating my spending on hotel points is generating less “value” overall over time. As an example, my Hilton AmEx gets me 3x points for groceries, while my United MP Chase Visa gets me 2x miles for groceries. I want the hotel points (I have none at the moment), but are those points worth so much less than my Mileage Plus miles that it’s a bad spending deployment? Thanks so much!!!

  2. You missed the Wyndham Rewards 5000 bonus points for booking on their App and paying with VISA Checkout.
