If there is a thread on this, then I apologize (and would appreciate being pointed to it), but I'm trying to determine what value Traveler Plus actually brings. It's always played up at the owner updates, but I haven't seen the value

For hotel stays, most of the time, I can get better deals from the hotel's website than I get through BG Traveler Plus - and from a points usage standpoint, I'm better off trying to rent out the points and then pay for a hotel stay

I expect I'll let T+ lapse this year, but before doing so, I want to make sure I'm not missing out on something that makes it worth the cost
