Of course there's the exception of people wanting to top off their points to get a night. But for most folks, if you're staying for 4 days or less, it is definitely much better value to use MR points for fixed points travel along with a discount code.

So you are definitely not wrong for calling me wrong to assume, but you are just clearly not educated about the points game. Remember, these post are about the question in the OP.
I know of the fixed point flight program but have never actually booked it. Is it possible to have a discount code when using the fixed point redemption? Where did you get the code from?

Sorry, should have clarified that I meant discount code to be used on hotel chains (eg. Marriot or Expedia) in conjunction with the 1,000 MR-S points = $10 promo they have right now (or using points to get an AMEX prepaid CC).

1000=10$ ends Sept 30th as well. Then back to 1000=$7 for non travel related purchases.
