You find a credit card on the street and you aren't even tempted.

Why should somebody else get the points?

Oh, all you CB guys, do you even know how to count? Miles are always worth more than cash. If it's a Chase card then it can be valued at around 1.6 cents per point and then if you transfer it to United you can value it at up to 1.9 cents per point. So if then you're losing out on up to 98.1 cents per point!

Can't, I've already given them to some company called Credit Excel in LKWD. I'd switch to you but I can't reach them as they change their phone number every week.

Of course it's more worth it if you're using them to travel; but for those who don't, can't/don't want to,
they are happy to sell them. To them it's free cash of $600 that they wouldn't otherwise have.
To some of us, it's $2,500 in airfare/hotels that I would have spent, but instead got for free!
