Congratulations to rle, Gold member and winner of 20,000 points! Here’s a quote from his post about Elite night credit for redemption stays:

“We really love this ability to earn elite night credits when using points redemption!  It has helped pad our rollover nights and allowed us to finally reach Gold status this year (we don't travel for work so all our travel is personal and it has been a long journey).” Read full post here.
