My Choice Rewards program is paying off! WHOOT! Wednesday night, September 22, we got a FREE room in Independence, MO. After Nashville, I'd almost given up on Comfort Inns. We left St. Louis and traveled across Missouri, finally booking a hotel in Independence, Mo. We'd driven enough. And lo and behold, my "Stay 2, Get 1 free," finally kicked in! We got free digs in Independence, MO, at the Comfort Inn. Check it out, folks! Heh. Rosie has now been on the road for 10 days. She's on to the ChoicePrivileges "reward" program. Read the fine print, people, if you can find it. Those damn "points" will screw with you every time, but Rosie's learning. Slowly.
