Are you earning enough hotel points?

Erica Silverstein asks whether you should focus more on hotel points than airline miles.

No doubt some hotel point programs can be easier to redeem with than miles. Starwood is the perfect example: all of their ‘standard’ rooms are available for redemption.

I find that airline programs still offer the greatest value proposition provided that you redeem for international upgrades or international premium class tickets. But hotel points are certainly underemphasized in most folks’ portfolios.

I say collect both!
