I hadn't seen this posted yet. We received this offer via email yesterday.

Buy up tp 100,000 and get 60% more (up to 60,000) points. They also don't count toward your annual limit of purchasing points. So you can go ahead and buy 50,000 more without the promo.

Thought about it. Decent price, but if no specific plans, they might be devalued before they get used.

That's .78 cents per point, pretty much right on the Points Guys valuation. At that price, it is possible to come out ahead on any stays, assuming you plan on any. Just depends when and where. I've been getting well over 1 cent per points on some medical stays using Bonvoy points I have needed.

Tempting because like Steve I usually get way above 0.8c/point value out of them, but with another devaluation inevitable, the gaming of peak/non-peak stays and likely not being able to use them for quite a while (need to use all my II weeks first! :cool: ), I think I'll pass on this one.
