Travel hacking / Chase Ultimate Rewards - Hotel Prices
« on: October 23, 2018, 11:18:52 AM »
I was trying to discuss travel hacking to a friend and wanted to prove that it was rewarding. 
I used my experience of booking 5 round trip (cheap) free flights on alligent so far as my proof.
So I asked him to tell me where he stayed before and I would figure out how many points it would be etc (exercise for myself to get more experience).
The hotel was a very swanky JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort.  My question is, have other travel hackers noticed how much the prices seem inflated on the rewards site to what you can book directly or find on google etc?  Not sure what to do about it, as the reason I am getting into this is travel.
My early findings are the airlines prices are spot on, but car and hotel prices appear more on the CUR site.
Thoughts appreciated for a newbie trying to take the next big step up.
