I do think the 75 point is very worth it

The 100 point is not. Ambassadors are not necessarily a help.

you can get 5 nights credit as plat benefit

This is after the 5 night credit

premier only gives you an ambassador, right? people here have been saying they’re pretty useless. more like a dedicated customer service rep. so maybe not.

No this is the first level of premier (so you get 75% bonus in points versus 50% bonus at platinum)

Yes. You can even find the cheapest hotel and redeem points for 4 nights which will give u the elite nights as well. Or maybe splurge a little on an extended weekend.

Find a cheap hotel for a long weekend. The extra 25% on points on stays next year will be worth it
