I got in on this promo in the hope that the points would be transferable and that I'd be able to extend the deadline to book, but that is not the case. I now have no use for them, because I can't book before then. Any other decent uses? Or should I just have them refund my tix?

TPG had a piece on using your 90k. Not gonna link it.

Quote
Washington-Reagan (DCA) to Charleston, SC (CHS) round-trip for 12,000 Avios is a heck a steal

Now if only I had any use for that....
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Sell?
Wonder what the going rate would be given the short shelf life, and limited availability...

You don't need such a high price to make a profit.

What were the "inconsistencies"?
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.
