I’ve rarely bought points. To me, it’s like cheating the game. Aeroplan just had a deal to sell points for 1 penny each. Marriott is giving a bonus for purchasing points. Unless it’s a last second booking and I’m in desperate need to get over the hump, I’m not opening my wallet. Even in those circumstances, I try to get more creative by considering other options e.g., flying another alliance or booking a different hotel. Today, there is no urgency to top off my account as there’s no urgency to travel. Today, hoarding cash as much as possible is better than hoarding points for an imaginary trip plan. I was frugal before this virus. Now, I’m cheap.
Are you buying points? Tell me why I’m wrong.
