I found them valuable if you hold on to them until Amazon has a promo to use your point purchases and then buy Amazon gift cards.

Do you get a 1099 for this?

Unlike a new checking account sign up bonus or earned interest, credit card rewards are classified by the IRS as a rebate, and aren't considered taxable income.

according to the wiki TYP is 1.2-1.4 and QF is 1.35-1.45.

Is this outdated? shouldn't they move in tandem?

I'll take a PM.
Was a friend. I don't sell points. (That may or may not have to do with the fact that I don't really have a lot) :)

maybe in a while with supply likely to go down due to closing of CC farms and Amex closing lots of accounts

This is just speculation, take it with a grain of salt

What are CC farms?

Not sure if value will go up, due to transfer partners getting constantly devalued and slowdown of oversees economy.
