With the recent peak and off peak pricing, many FN certificates are harder to use. I know it will take some IT upgrades, but it just makes more sense to be able to make up the difference between the value of the free night certificates and points needed for a stay. Better yet, give the points value of the certificates more flexibility in being able to use its points equivalent for any stays. For example, I can use my 50K certificate to book a 2 night stay at a hotel requiring 25K a night or combine a 35K and a 50K certificate for a stay that needs 90K which I will then supplement with 5K from my account. Ahhh I know wishful thinking or maybe deluded because with all the changes that has happened in the program, I have now shifted my stays with Hyatt and Hilton.
