I don't get what the bias is, but OK.

TPG horrible reporting again. although I actually can understand the ease of making this mistake it goes to show a lack of real knowledge before posting.

Got @doctorofcredit to fall for it as well.

Please donít fall for bad TPG reporting. Higher flight prices have always been around 1c. They are comparing a cheap mint flight vs current expensive flights. Search expensive economy flights as well and you will see 1cpp there as well. Over a certain $ threshold the value goes down. (I donít know this number exactly but I am sure with some work it could be figured out). Find a cheap mint flight and you will see 1.4 again

Meh, I make sure any of my friends who know less than me, don't read TPG. I care, but not much we can do. I only send links from decent blogs even if tpg is the first link I see.

I was hoping to at least get @doctorofcredit to realize that nothing TPG posts is reliable

...and here I thought you were going to say Mint usually gets more than 1c.  Instead, you just say it's always usually been 1c and this is not new. Ugh.

Find a cheap mint flight and you will see 1.4Ę again. Can you share a route where you see this pricing of 1.4Ę per point. I tried several different routes and couldn't find anything. I'm always happy to be proven wrong and post a retraction/correction.

I could show you dozens of examples where that's false, but that's the besides the point. I do this for a living and don't claim that I have no biases.

Todays post about Blue Business would be contrary to what you said. A 10k point sign up is available thru referral and possibly incognito (although you do mention "public offer" - however thats the same as TPG writing pushing the AA card). Being that this card is being pushed hard on DDMS, I feel like that small piece of information should be mentioned.

few other instances where weak Sign up bonuses were being pushed
