Canceled the original reservation that used all the points from Contract 2, that I also would need for future reservations.

Rebooked the original reservation that would then allow me to use exactly as many points as I wanted from Contract 1, with the remaining (fewer) points coming from Contract 2.

Canceled the placeholder which put the Contract 1 points back where they belonged.

Convoluted?? You bet. I hate having to work the system like this, but grateful for learning the workaround from MOs many years ago.

This is amazing! Nice work!

Thanks, but it was a strategy I first saw here on MOs many moons ago.

Well done. Outsmarting the computer (thinking outside the "box", ha) will likely always be necessary for certain things no matter how good a program is (or isn't).
