Mike and I wanted to do Fiji for our 25th anniversary, but I just can't get it to work out w/ points, and we don't do anything full price! Plus, I know our time with the boys is limited, so if there's a way for us to vacation with them, I want to do it. Of course, that takes more points!

So, I just booked roundtrip airfare and lodging for 4 tickets and 2 rooms for $360 total out of pocket (which was all the airline tax stuff). Holiday Inn - points in mid May.

It's only 4 nights, but we arrive before 1pm on Saturday and depart around 5pm on Wed. I'm pretty sure we can get a late check out at hotel, so 3 full days and 2 half days.

Woo-hoo!

Oh yeah, they are psyched and quite surprised. 25K miles for roundtrip airfare is a killer deal for the Caribbean. Plus, Mike still has 'status' after all that travel, so we get the extra leg room / free drinks seats for free. Which is nice when you're travelling companions are all at least 6'3"!
