I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone post we should be getting credits for nights stayed using points. Other programs do this and so should MR. Of course no points are awarded, but the nights certainly are credited.
If additional changes are being considered for the MR program, please consider this one as well.
Unless you have points to burn, why would anyone want to do that? As discussed earlier, the Instant Redemption conversion is absolutely dismal.
