UR-UR is less.
Ur-ur @1.275 if sent to account with saphirre reserve gives the ah 15% off any flight.
With wf down I don't see why it should be less than this

I guess I could sell a bit at a time, anyway.

Do you mean transfering to airline points? What would prevent me from being able to do that - is there a risk to that?

once you book a ticket for a 3rd party the account is no longer clean and brokers won’t buy the rest.

You mean book a ticket directly from the account? And by transferring to a third party, do you mean UR-UR?

What about if I transfer the points to the frequent flier program of their choice?
