I am kind of new at this rewards thing, and had a few questions. My husband and I are going to be spending Christmas in the Destin/Pensecola/Gulf Shores area. The dates are 12/23/2016-1/1/2017. We are looking at the Residence Inn at Miramar Beach, I think it is Residence Inn Sandestin. Anyone ever been there? Also, what would be the best way to earn the most points? How do I find out if there are any deals or packages then? I have tried to look around the website, but it's confusing! Any help or a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!
