Im just curious what people would do or have done with this amount of pounts
It would help if you would share where your "Dream" trip desires would take you. I am sure we could help you with that trip on this site.
For me, it would be Paris, Marriott C-E, for one week. For 360,000 points you would get a break on air fair, and I would forget the rental car. What a week you could have!
For more information and options, go to the "Rewards" section on the site, and view the packages and options. One thing to consider is that you may want to book your trip very early, as the great places tend to book up early.
Nice total to be spending! Without knowing where you are based or how many travelling, it is difficult to make a suggestion.
Personally, I would take one of the Travel Packages ... the 330K one that gives 120K air miles and 1 week in a Cat 7 hotel. That would give me 2 British Airways return flights from London Heathrow to Washington DC (Dulles) in Premium Economy and a week in the JW on Penn. If you were to do this in reverse, the best Marriott (personal preference) in London would be County Hall, but that's a Cat 8, so would need a 360K package.
If you share your 'dream' as I have just seen Jerry suggests, we may be able to be even more creative.
Let's go stay at a couple of Cat. 7 Hotels this year.
The first stay can be at The Cayman Islands. Just you and your sweetie. 5 nights will set you back 140,000 points. Add a 6th night for 35,000, if you'd like.
The second stay can be more family related. Lets take the two little ones to Vail Marriott Mountain Resort and Spa if you're into fun in the snow. Same tab..140 for 5 nights or 175 for 6.
Total 280,00 up to 350,000....lets you keep 50,000 to 120,000 in the bank.
Cat. 6 Hotels work, too. If it's sun and fun the family likes , let's head to one of the 7 Marriotts or 1 JW in Orlando. The 5 nights at 120,000 or 6 at 150,000 may save you enough to plan another trip next year!!!
Vail is a great choice!
Recently stayed there and with the air service nearby, we flew from MSP directly to the Rockies, and bypassed Denver.
Wonderful family hotel and downtown.
You're headed my way and I am headed yours!
Glad you commented on London County Hall Marriott, that's a great suggestion, and my 2nd choice!
boolka, would be very wise to search some of the previous posts on "Wherever" their desires are leaning toward.
I'm betting Boo is sitting in Paris right now, having blown the 400K, and just wondering what everyone else might have done....
I bet you are right!
I like Vail as well!
Where can you find these travle packages (flight + hotel) using points?
I have never them on the site,
Nothing clever, but there are a lot of dream vacations out there.
What's the word? Have you used the 400K? If so, how did it go? Were you persuaded by any of the suggestions thrown out by the group?
To my MRI friends...... Any other interesting ways to spend the 400,000?
Thats a very good question, what did happen?
Thanks For all the ideas Guys!
I decided to go to both the Cayman Islands and To Rome!
Thanks for the suggestions guys!
Have a great trip!
That was a great question.
Awesome. We'll wait to hear reviews, see some pictures, and hear about your adventures!
Nice Boo!!! Enjoy and share, please.
