Club Carlson has a 50% points buy deal right now so you can buy 40,000 (the annual max) points for $280 plus they give you 20,000 as a bonus so you end up with 60,000 points which can in turn be redeemed by them for 9,250 Avois so that is 3.027 cents per Avois. Seems like a great deal or at least good deal? Also I'm sitting on 146,000 club carlson points mostly from hotel bonus deals earlier this year. So is it worth it to buy the 60k and use the 148k to turn in for 38,000 Avois? The points are good for about 4 or 5 decent hotel nights so figure $500'ish value plus the $280 for the buy. 38,000 Avois at say $800 in value doesn't seem really great.
