Well, at an approx value of 1.33cpp (7,500 Avios for $100) and if there was zero way of just buying the ticket cheaper than that would be a good deal....ASSUMING the award is even available.

Also, BA Award tickets typically include priority boarding/tsa line.

I just got 1.35 for Amex MR. I was sitting on a ton of them and got rid of about $10K worth.

 

Have you calculated the earn rate on your current MRs per dollar of spend across the lot of them?

I'd guesstimate mendel earns them at 0.5 or less.

I'm finding it harder to hit that value nowadays.

It is getting harder. I average 0.55 on gebits with bonus and 1.5+ for non-bonus, mostly mall + WM. Offset that with some cashback routes in order average at 0.3-0.4. I really miss AGC.

Where? Also, did you find a way to sell Avíos yet?

Through a broker.

 

Not for anything worthwhile.

I was able to burn up 80K with directs to Maui at 3cpp (Direct to Kona is practically non existent for SAAver) here recently but it's a serious beetch finding return flights. Even HNL-DFW is coming up nil. Edited by Zobelle

I'm aware of that list and I'm positive Rorer is as well. I believe he started this thread to have a discussion here, not to link elsewhere.

Was just posting for reference for everyone who was reading.

 

But yes I agree, this discussion is for CB, not DDF or any other forum.

Stay out of the M$ threads.

 

Don't make me post a link to Dan and DOC telling you how FOS you are.

Stay out of the MS threads.

Sorry. Will try to stay out of the MS related threads.

 

And BTW, it was an honest mistake from earlier.

 

Everyone should get back On topic without me.

 

I'll go back to lurking and I'll keep my mouth shut.

I would also take that list with a grain of salt. A lot of brokers post there. The real data points you have posted are the most valuable.

Really? The ongoing broker rate for MR is 1.35? I take that list with a grain of salt, but that is really quite low in my opinion.

Not when you're selling and not using points.

You can get 1.4 but from a broker that is a good price. With the new Amex card benefits hopefully that price will be going up.
