Staying in LA for 2 nights. Is it better to use starwood points for 2 nights or buy one night and use starwood points second night (or MR or UR points?). And whats the best to pay, AMEX plat., Starwood or Sapphire? Or go thru FHR? Trying to stack rewards and minimal cash!
Depends on the price of the night and the category of the hotel. Also, not all hotels participate in Amex FHR. I wouldnt pay with the Amex Platinum card (unless its required by FHR, which I think it is but could be wrong) Either Amex SPG or Chase Sapphire is fine for payment, depending on which points you value more. Can you provide more information?
Which part of LA?
I would ideally look for cash+points. That helps stretch a lot better.
If it is Sheraton, add the Sheraton Amex offer on as many cards as possible.
If you are going to put the FHR benefits to use, FHR is the way to go.
