How much are 80k points worth on Amex

I'd probably use them on one of the airlines. Don't transfer them to SPG because the conversion ratio is awful. Same goes for JetBlue. But if you transfer them to delta/British air you should be able to get a ton of good value out of them




You should be getting at $1,100 out of them. Market value if you sold them to a points broker is usually around 1.35 cents per point, but I've seen transfer rewards with VX up to 2.25


Virgin America


Usually $100 per 10k points if you get giftcards

You should be able to get $1,500 out of them or so if you transfer them to other programs

Hey zs which programs to transfer them to ? Any suggestions ?


Thanks zs 😬

I would guess around $800. Gift cards have the best value. Don't use on 'paying with points'

What's vx?

I just bought an iPad Pro 9.7in with 107k points. Value on Amazon was $734

A1 you got screwed!

This is exactly why the banks still offer points haha. Nobody knows how to use them

@A1 - you should have converted it to 1k or so worth of Best Buy gift card and bought the iPad. Could have saved money/points

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.

Wharton EMBA worth it? Late career starter so limited white collar experience but interesting background/past life. Also have kids to support so can’t do a full time program. Want the MBA for career boost ($), as an entry to faang/MBB and to have more security for future opportunities. Worth it? Does the EMBA have the same faang/MBB recruitment access and weight as full time?
