Was offered points to give up my late checkout request. Anyone have experience with this? Is the amount of points being offered negotiable?

I was going to ask for 25k (was offered 18)...but they said they couldn’t offer more. I didn’t really need the extra 4 hours so I took it and ran. Thanks for the suggestions, all.

No, but If a hotel night is 25,000 points for 20 hours then 4 hours early departure is worth at least 5000 points. I would ask for that or a little more if it is a higher tier place.

Ask for points equivalent to a 1 night stay at that hotel. SA1 is technically right but you can’t buy partial nights with points and so they should at minimum offer you enough to take advantage of that benefit on a future stay.

If it's an inconvenience to you, then of course it's negotiable. Late check out isn't optional, it's a guaranteed benefit. But, don't think you are entitled to 100k points lol 5k- 10k should suffice
