    Rob- loving the Ritz so much started the process with getting their credit card for some benefits, then this whole points thing that so many of you talk about really got me motivated and it will take my "experience" to a whole new level of travel. It looks like if I take 2 "reasonable" trips each year to the ritz and charge my daily expenses when I can, I can easily go to Aruba for free over Xmas/NYE. I thought I may have to give it up, or travel in a timeshare, which I would as long as it was on Palm Beach, I am a creature of habit

    Now, if I could find a mortgage company that took credit cards, lol.

    Mmmmmm. You could set up an account to receive credit card charges. Charge to this account (there would be a 3% fee). Pay your mortgage from this account.....
    I wouldn't advise it, nor do I think the points would be worth the 3%, but I'm trying to be creative

    Wow, disaster avoided today. While I love everything about the Aruba Ritz, I am equally troubled by their booking department. They are 2 for 2 with screwups, lol. I looked at marriott account today after booking our NYE trip and noticed it was messed up. I did book the Marriott Stellaris but in Aruba NOT San Juan. It was quickly fixed and it is the same cost but geez, don't make me proof read everything like I am in school...

    I have been to the Ritz in San Juan a couple years back, while I enjoyed the trip I don't see myself returning anytime soon, if ever. It could have been ugly, lol.
