You can do the math, redemptions through CSR count as revenue tickets, so you get PQM and award miles as well, if that impacts your abalysis

Well I'm asking existing users to see what the options are on the redemption site. Not intrigued by the limited airline lounges either

It's standard airline fares at 1 point/1.5 cents transaction or transfer to any of the travel partners listed on the site. I believe those are the redemption options

I've been an EA for about a decade - I've worked at Start Ups, Post-IPO companies, and Venture Capital Firms. If you are a rockstar EA and looking for a place where people are genuine and kind, I would urge you to apply at Snapchat. Going to Snapchat was the best move I ever made. They REALLY prioritize their employees, and the benefits are absolutely incredible. I hear a lot about toxic EA cultures at *certain* other companies and Snap just does not do that. (Be warned: it's a FAST pace.)
