Yes, 150k points is probably worth between $1 and $1.5k depending on how you use them

Yeap worth it for the bonus points and if you use the cards right for their bonus categories (e.g. Plat for travel for 5x, Gold for meals for 4x, etc.)

How can I get that offer? 👀

Not sure… just came up for me! But yo I’ll refer you for an extra 30K each 🤓

Got the same offer and took it.

Coming back here… I didn’t realize the 150K was an exploding offer so I lost that and it dropped to 100K points only. Anything I can do? I already tried calling but nothing from me.
