If you’re really trying to get the most value for points, use them during festivals and events. The Four Points Munich Central is 50 m from Oktoberfest and 10,000 points/night for a room that would be 374€/night. I’ve also done the Sheraton Rio during Carnival, the W French Quarter in New Orleans during Mardi Gras, and the W Times Square and Weston Sydney on NYE

The palace in Madrid is pretty lit. Probably not the best bang for the points though

Looking at Mykonos for honeymoon and none of those seem like great redemptions for what you get. Le Méridien in Split, Croatia was only 10k and we really liked the hotel and city.

Randomly was browsing and saw that you could get nights at St. Regis Berlin for 200 per night.

I’ve been in logistics for 2 years, and I am starting to think… My stress tolerance has deepened, my problem solving skills and patience is at new heights, analysis and profitability and confidence is stronger.

Question about what’s realistic: My boss, vp of marketing, is dead set on working with an agency who can produce multiple videos over the course of several small shoots so that we can iterate on what’s working. From my experience, this would cost a lot more than our budget (80k) and would ultimately be more expensive than one larger shoot with more deliverables. Videos are short, 10s or less and without a real narrative — more just for a sizzle reel kind of thing. Thoughts? Nyc based.
