In early February bmi announced a nice promotion whereby you earn 5,000 bmi miles for each stay at a Wyndham property through February 28 (maximum four). Well, this has now been extended through March 31, so there’s more time to earn bmi miles at less than one cent each.
I’m still debating whether or not to take advantage of this offer. I see some hotels that I could pay a visit to for $39 per night, which is a fantastic deal. But these are also the places I wouldn’t stay at unless my life depended on it. Take this TripAdvisor review, for example, of one of the hotels that’s very cheap:
No words can accurately convey how very unpleasant staying in this motel was. There were relatively fresh blood stains on the ripped comforter. Everything (walls, carpet, drapes) was grimy and mysteriously stained. Had to sleep in my clothes and couldn’t make myself take a shower in the morning for fear of having to use their towels. Would very strongly recommend staying elsewhere.
Or this one:
I found out it is a place that probably charges by the hour!! The locals said it was a hooker joint. It is NOT a clean place, nor maintained properly.
Yeah, no way in heck I’m staying there, but do I just go and check-in for the miles? Toughie….
