Compare the point price to the $ price. If you are getting a redemption of 0.007$ per point, you are good. Less than that you may be better paying with cash

It’s the most commonly accepted fair valuation https://thepointsguy.com/guide/monthly-valuations/amp/

Where are the best redemptions? Is it pretty standard across the globe that above $.007 is a good redemption for bonvoy?

I disagree with that. Cat 1 and Cat 2 properties can be a great value. For all categories, use the same math.

Yes, I was checking the same. Booking with corporate rate costed me $400 for 3 nights vs 120k points. I am going with cash option

Rough numbers says that’s a redemption rate of $.01, which sounds like a good value. Why go with cash? (Sincere question)

BCG1 that was it- thanks

Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon.

Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?

I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios. Also, that it is recommended to have at least one US stock, international stock , and bond. I am 24yo so ideally, I’d want to allocate 90%-100% to stocks and 0%-10% to the bond. Any other things I should be looking at?

Also as opposed to Accenture strategy where it might be someone’s 5th choice to go to, interactive tends to be people’s first choice given our mkt position
