Miles chats aren't broker rates
But yes, you should be able to get 1.3
What are they then? Fake brokers rates?
I just found a new supply of forks!

Who says miles chats shouldnít be broker rates. Brokers rip off the people who know nada
yes brokers definitely should work for free they do not need to earn a living

 There is a certain level of trust on the miles chats so maybe that goes into the pricing a little. Iím sure a reg broker has more horror stories then people who buy from miles chats. I guess thatís a fair redemption for the brokers

You can get more then 1.3 on all the miles chats. Get a friend that has connection to the chat to sell it for you.

Brokers are brokers. They can't buy at the same rate they are selling at..

Broker buys 400k @ 1.25, sells to another broker or TA, 400k @ 1.3-1.325, make $200-$300 commission.

You're saying he should find a friend (as his broker), and use the friendship card to cut out his friend / brokers parnassa?
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Agreed. I have a bridge, used, but fairly good condition. Any interest?

Well the friend can also buy the points at a little bit of a higher rate than the guy is getting and then sell the points on the chat and keep the extra money so everyone wins.

Brokers can pay more to people they know/trust and will have an easier time dealing with.
But if selling to a random broker 1.25 is the going rate
