If you use Starpoints for hotels, the bonus is great.
If you transfer them to airlines, that may be wasteful when you already have so many options via UR and MR.
I have yet to use points
for a hotel stay as I have found them to be too expensive in the past. I might just be better off paying cash and using my Platinum benefits with SPG Hotels. Thanks for Chase Mall and the Freedom Card I am banking UR's like crazy.
By "points" are you referring here to MRs or Starpoints?
Paying in MRs is a bad idea, but paying for rooms with Starpoints should be giving you a pretty good cent-per-point value. It doesn't change the fact that the room itself may be too expensive, though.
