My hotel is now booked for Surtex 2014! Last time I went, my assistant friend Mindy and I stayed at a hotel in Hell's Kitchen, but we would end up going over to Times Square every night taking in all the sites and sounds and food, which was a long walk, especially at night and in the cold. So, this year I decided we should be closer to all the action :) I used my Marriott rewards points to get us a hotel on Fifth Avenue, just a block from Times Square.
I've been saving all of my rewards points for this trip which has saved me the entire cost of the hotel room! This is just one way to cut costs and make the Surtex trip less stressful and easier on the pocketbook. You could also do the same with reward points for airplane tickets, car rentals, any number of options to help balance out the expenses of Surtex.
