Why do e-certificate(s) cost more to purchase than the room cost?  I have found it is cheaper to just pay for a room at the Fairfield Inn Bryan College Station than to purchase addition certificates.... does not make sense to me!


Three nights is 45,000 points and I have 21,192 points and to purchase 24,000 points to get to 45,000 points is $300.00  If I book the room without using an  e-certificate the entire stay is $345.


I do not understand the logic!  Can someone explain it to me?
