How many SPG points to ask for if you find out that there are bed bugs in your hotel room. Realistic number

I think SPG points are $17.50 per thousand if you had to buy them. I would make them buy you a new suitcase plus replace clothes/points. If you have them give you 50,000 points that is like $875. The suitcase is a must however. Taking that home with you will lead to some massive expense down the road like a new bed or carpet.

I asked for 12k a night a few weeks ago and had little kickback

Got 30K for 3 nights + Travel Suit case replacement + free premium lounge access + free laundry and dry cleaning for the duration is the stay. Think I was lowballed on points though.

Say you're deathly allergic to bed bugs (I know someone who actually is). Should up the figure.

Did this happen?? Where?

I would ask 10k per night of the stay and see what they say back

10K is low balling it. You'd have to clean/replace all your clothes and luggage to make sure you don't bring those things back home with you. A huge pain in the ass. The hotel should justly compensate you for the potential home invasion.

Eeewwwww did not even think of having to replace all your clothes but so right. Gross.

Good point EY1

37

47,000

52,837

I got 25k for 2 roaches in a towel I found. So I would think more for bed bugs

P1 - SPG points worth depends on the type of redemption. Think if you use those points for a comparable SPG stay, you can actually get as much as $850 for 35K points

The departure of several key team members with no thought given to replacing them, resulting in an overload of work for inadequate compensation, only serves to undermine my morale.

How do i approach these matters to the partners knowing that they don't honor their promises?
