Fellow Insiders - I have an upcoming redemption stay on points in Aruba, and a big paid stay in Newport Beach the following week. I just realized that by making an airport hotel stay before flying to Aruba due to an early flight, I may be inadvertently hurting my double points calculus by using one of the three on a single night stay. Will my redemption stay in between paid stays count as one of my three stays (double points)? Does this count even though the double points ties strictly to base points earnings, and I won't have any base points earnings on a redemption stay? I hope this question makes sense... Anybody run in to this issue with a redemption stay counting against your three double-points stays? I appreciate any help you can offer.
