Thanks D1.

I'm trying to book tickets for April. Tickets are super expensive without the points. Just deadlines I could do a 1:1 transfer from csr to united. Booking using chase points is 11k points more!

Looks like I won't be traveling this year 😑

Mileage plus X app. $250 GC for Dave and busters. = 2500 pts

Hooters and chili's are a little less @ 8/dollar.
