The more you have the less it seems you can get 400k UR+ gets you only 1.35 where as 50k gets you 1.4-1.45! Crazy market now!

It used to be יש בכלל מאתים מנה.

Now that only one AU to transfer to a year, that's no longer true.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

BIL just asked me about UR value. So would you say 1.4 for 160K is about market value or should he keep looking around?

I don't see how UR can be worth less than 1.5 when you can use it at that valuation for travel with a CSR (as mentioned several times.. & by David smith)

I think people don't realize what travel is

If Chase is crediting EZpass MTA tolls under travel it's a lot easier to use your points at 1.5 value that way

Not worth selling it for 1.5

You can only redeem at 1.5 for travel booked through UR travel portal.

It's pretty simple market dynamics why UR went down. Very similar situation to MR crashing earlier this year. Buyer demand remained steady, while market supply (especially bulk stock) and need to sell increased.

BIL just asked me about UR value. So would you say 1.4 for 160K is about market value or should he keep looking around?
From all the people who I have called trying to sell my points for such an amount 1.4 is a good price, a highly doubt you will find better! I have so many numbers to go through to see if anyone needs such big amounts! Will be happy if I get 1.4 or the like!

160k is slightly more then average so I would suggest call o or two people and see what there response is!

Someone offers me 1.4 for Amex (MR). Is this the most I can squeeze out of these points?
