See title: Points/Miles Values NO BUYING/SELLING ALLOWED
Who cares if a broker added the wiki.  :)
So why not post value you got from a last minute trip. Doesn't say cash or selling in the title.

Sometimes you gotta use seichel.
This thread is for people selling to brokers to make sure it's the market rate. Obviously selling to end user will be higher, especially AA where they aren't necessarily in on the audit risk.

Giving someone .6 or .8 is taking them to the cleaners. Like when they offer 1.25 for MR.  :)
How much is a normal price for MR points from a broker?

Not sure there's a market for it, however IHG sells points directly for .5 (plus the cc points I'll earn on that transaction)

So .35?
you mean IHG sells theyre own points for .5 ?
