    I did a normal lookup today, to discover the $50 Points for Credit, which used to be 7500 points, has been removed. The $100, 15000 point award still exists, but the $50 appears to have been taken off.

    I'm not sure that .667 cents per point is a good deal either way. :(

    I value my points a lot more than that.

    Especially AX points where I have a choice of airlines, although some (e.g. QF) are more value than others (e.g. SQ).

    I value my points more than that as well, but you have to admit it's still better value than the $45,000 toaster!

    That's true but the rewards program is mainly for those who can't take up flights or don't want to. Although u may get an award flight, u still need spending money plus the lost income.

    But I agree!!... wouldn't use my 7500 points for $50, it wouldn't make sense to me but it would to others.

    As usual I take everything off topic. :oops:

    Is the "moddy angel" the same as the "moody angel"? :lol:

    I wonder if it got pulled due to being an unpopular option? Given that the $50 vouchers are still around (for less points), it is hardly an unprofitable option for Amex to have.

    OK the let me take it off topic again! :? :oops:

    Iagree that 7500 points for $50 credit/voucher is not a very good deal.

    I prefer to convert Amex points to qff points.

    The way I understand it is it that you need to use them for business/first class trips or upgrades to business/first to get maximum benefit.

    If you were to blow 8,000 points on SYD-MEL one way trip this would require ~$50 in taxes/charges giving a net value of ~$50 for 8,000 points. Even worse burn rate than the 7,500 for $50 offer. :roll:
