Glad to see I'm not the only one. I was just running through the math on the value of this point purchase offer. Based on an upcoming travel plan, the cost in points to book the travel is at a rate of about 75 points per dollar. Buying points for that travel would require 45,000 points, or so. According to the offer, the base price for those points would be $1237.50 (36 points per dollar). The 45% off puts it at $680.63 (66 points per dollar). It's cheaper to just purchase the travel outright. Nothing about this is a deal.
