Ice Rewards — upgrade to elite status
DON'T DO IT! It is not a good deal. Some guy called me last week and talked me into upgrading to "Elite Status" He said I can use my points to stay for free, only cost points. What he didn't say is that the points are in fact worth less than the program I was in. Example;

The elite program;

25 Aug 01 Sep 7 nights 1 Bdrm / Full 4 $1, 487.51* $1, 487.51
..with 100, 000 points $0.00*
Which means 100000 is worth 0.01487 dollars per point
$1487.51/100000 points = $0.01487 per point
Last year I booked this exact property.
I paid $387 cash + 10000 points
$1100.51/10000 points=$0.110051 per point
Do the math first!
