Hi, just wondering how people value their Qantas points, over say, Hotel recognition points...

often after booking flights, you get an email for accomdoation.  Usually these come with discounts or double qantas point offers, however, if you book using qantas.com, you don't get the normal loyalty points with your preferred hotel as they don't count...

Do you normally still go ahead and book using Qantas.com, or would you book to obtain the hotel loyalty program?

I get reasonably high loyalty tiers with a number of hotel groups via my AMEX so I have shifted away from booking direct with hotels and probably book 95% of my accom via Qantas.com. I have free-reign up to about $250/n and know which hotels I like so I tend to chase Qantas points. 

The only reason I accumulate QFF points is for long haul upgrades from economy to Premium or business.
