Most likely NO! I posted yesterday about a double points promotion through Rocketmiles (a hotel booking sight where you earn a bunch of miles – up to 10,000 miles per night with this promotion). While this promotion is great a) if you were planning on staying at a hotel in the month of October and b) if the rate is equivalent or not much more to a rate you’d get by booking through the hotel directly, many of the hotels in small towns where rates are typically cheap (less than $100/night with a discount, AAA, corporate rate, etc.) are still super expensive. I personally have not found one scenario where a mattress run is worth it (mattress run = staying at a hotel simply for the points/miles that come with it as the benefits outweighs the cost).
Also, as a reminder, this promotion ends tonight and is for hotels booked for the month of October (must check out by October 31st). To learn more about the promotion you can read this prior post.
Has anyone found an opportunity for a mattress run?
