Hope you all received an email today from Ihg, regarding donating points to Shelter in a storm campaign. What a great way we can help, albeit in a small way to the people of Vanartu effected by cyclone Pam. Hope we can all dig deep.

This may not be a 'popular' response, however ...

I'd rather donate cash, than my points - as I believe my $ is worth a $ to the charity - but a 'point' is valued at much less.

What value could a third-party place on 'points' ( to include points from other organisations as well ) ?

I've heard, that 'points' are valued at about a third of their value that the 'earner' may attribute to them, as they first need to be 'sold' in order for the gaining charity to be paid anything.

Somebody makes a profit - and it's not the charity, nor the 'earner' of the points ...
