Where do you take that from?
Email SPG sent out to all plat members. Showing how we are taking "advantage" of their program

If there was no availability and the tix were $9k each, perhaps it wasn't such a bad redemption...

I wonder if any DDF'rs came close to topping any of the lists
Always HUCA, and then HUCA some more until you get what you want.

1) SPG doesn't give 2cpp for flights
2) Full fare biz is less than $9k for that route

Lol, was just about to make a post about that :D
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

It's SPG taking advantage of the members...

If there was no availability and the tix were $9k each, perhaps it wasn't such a bad redemption...

For 870k I'd take a different option, or ten...

This probably cost SPG as much as, if not more than transferring to airlines.
