Just received a request for a booking using World Points, redeemable through Bank of America. We do not have any arrangements with Bank of America to handle the points in order to have Bank of America reimburse us. Anyone familiar?

You can sign up with BofA to accept the points but not sure how long of a process that is. Also don't know if it is 100% payout, probably not.

I would just explain you are not signed up to accept boa world points. Looking at the site, there is a list of places to stay that do.

They are grasping, and looking for someone to bite. Don't bite that bait! Tell them to check the list of hotels on the BoA rewards site.

Thanks, all. Am following your advice...The guest wants to come immediately so we told her we would be happy to accept her personal credit card as payment since we do not have a working relationship with World Points. She has held off on booking...we will see.

Mountain inn jump on in whenever you want to, we would love to hear more from you!
Funny, I am switching to SQUARE to get rid of paying these points, and all their fees...what a crazy world we live in.
You stay, you pay, simple.

I've had guests stay and use their points before, but they've just had to charge their stay with the credit card that has their points program. We didn't have to do anything on our end.

Don't worry about it, it isn't your issue, it's hers. Someone else will book it. Or she never really wanted to... she's dumping her hassle with using the points on you.
