|Subject: Re: Hotel and Airline points - A dollar value??|
Hello Raul (right, not Paul?),
As Mark says, 2 cents per mile is a rule-of-thumb value for airline miles. For hotel points, it depends on the program; the programs I know best give 10 points per dollar charged, but others give points differently and have a completely different award scale. You might check the discussions of the program you have in mind at http://www.flyertalk.com .The topic of the value of that program's points often comes up.
