Many mistakes in the Southwest credit card post, where you calculate the points value.(These mistakes were already in the older posts as well.) The math is rigjt, it's just in the explanation where you c/p from other calculations

Mistakes are in quotation marks.

 A one-way Philadelphia-Orlando nonstop flight on 1/13 is $50.98 with tax. It can also be bought for 2,669 points plus $5.60 tax. So 2,669 points gets you a value of $45.38 ($50.98 airfare less the $5.60 tax on the points ticket), imputing a value of 1.7 cents ("47.38"/2,669) per point.

47.38 should be replaced with 45.38

A one-way LaGuardia-Chicago nonstop flight on 3/20 is $50.98 with tax. It can also be bought for 2,669 points plus $5.60 tax. So 2,669 points gets you a value of $45.38 ($50.98 airfare less the $5.60 tax on the points ticket), imputing a value of 1.7 cents ("47.38"/2,669) per point

47.38 should be replaced with 45.38

A one-way LaGuardia-Denver nonstop flight on 3/20 is $90.98 with tax. It can also be bought for 5,571 points plus $5.60 tax. So "5,789" points gets you a value of $85.38 ($90.98 airfare less the $5.60 tax on the points ticket), imputing a value of 1.53 cents (85.38/5,571) per point

5,789 should be replaced with 5,571

Latest tesla post has a couple mistakes.
2nd paragraph: States like ?
2nd paragraph regarding incentives no mention clarifying the obvious that it is about elctric vehicles.
Last paragraph (model x) will set you back 15k will set you back 15k
