Low offer, it's like paying 1.35 for SPG.

WF are in demand right now.
Sure doesn't seem that way... doesn't bother me too much because we don't have huge amounts so redeeming for a statement credit is not a huge loss. The Merrill+ is a shame though to leave 2 cents per point for flights on the table and take a 1 cent statement credit... I guess they are not popular because it's mostly for domestic flight and in increments of 25k converting to $500 in flights so it's less flexible than other currencies....
