Points to Paradise

I am not ashamed to admit that I have used my credit card to purchase a pair of $1.99 tweezers at Walgreens.   Hey, don’t roll those eyes, each dollar spent is a point or two that counts towards a “free” hotel stay and by golly, I’m collecting..

every single one.

  I don’t know “what’s in your wallet” but I swear I can hear the ocean when I pull my Marriott VISA  out of mine.

Below are pictures I took this past summer when we finally cashed in our 2 night hotel “reward.”

b1
Sunrise stroll on the beach,  worth at least 7,500 points
b3
Direct Ocean view room on 10th floor, minimum 14,987  points for sure
b6
Poolside menu on a ping-pong paddle- clearly a 2,000 point bonus

 

 Three amazing pools,

2 hot jacuzzis

and I’m sure if I had looked, I’d have found a partridge in a palm tree.

(Value? According to Marriott – 40,000 points.)

 

So after this glorious week-end of free lodging the VISA-rewards-counter is sadly back at zero.

But that’s OK, my husband needs some shaving cream.

And you know what they say..A journey of a hundred thousand zillion points begins with one tiny purchase.

  1. Nice to get those rewards for stuff you use anyway….I have one card that gives me airline points – while I fly PLENTY it’s nice to fly to see family for free once in awhile.

    • Yup! Which airline do you use? We had SouthWest for a while..but I don’t fly enough to ever get enough points… you have to have a billion zillion points to ever get anything these days.. 😏
