I'm not a teenager who needs their ego stroked - who cares about 18,000 pointless points? Is there ANY way I could get a tangible thank you - not to people who like their property!! Conflict of interest! But if I could turn 18K helpful points into a free night sometime...... Could a hotel or airline offer a bonus just for total points, regardless of where they are from? That would not be unethical. I do a lot of posting and I like to be helpful, but I am also human, and a gift brightens the day. NO need to argue with me; don't have time. Just a thought for the future.
