It was a Saturday night stay, and points posted last night.
One rule that struck me curious about the promotion was the requirement not just to check in in person (so that one person couldn’t go do a mass check-in for 50 people) but also to check out in person. I didn’t think it would actually be enforced. Were they really going to make hotels verify who had come to the desk for checkout? Were they really going to add that as an IT capability? It seemed a stretch.
And in my case, it certainly wasn’t enforced.
