Has anyone bought points to help pay for their hotel travel expense? I have 2 free nights at the ritz with a certificate thru my CC, and I will have enough points for 2 free nights at the Marriott with a little left over. So my question, has anyone purchased points to add to their balance? I can add the points cheaper than I could book the room for to make a free 5 night trip. Any experience? I am assuming its a pretty quick transaction, like entering your credit card, lol.
I have traveled for years but never got a cc with benefits or a hotel rewards card to build points- what a waste, but I am learning anyway.
