    top tier redemption at CC is 50k, right? 8k RR typically gets you a sub-$200 one-way?

    Yes.

    Don't know as I don't fly Southwest. If correct that's a decent redemption. Especially if the airline miles are more useful to you than the hotel pts. (Not how I'd use the Club C pts.though.)

    i'm fairly confident i've seen $200+ on RR go for 10k+ points when searching a few weeks ago. I see another companion pass in my future, so I have to know these things, now :/

    as a new Carlson CC-holder, now, those Carlson points are much more valuable.

    For 'Wanna get away' fares, there is a fixed value of $0.0166 per point. 8k = ~$133 in fare. But, tickets are fully refundable back to RR points with no fees, which adds some value IMO. The highest redemption of 100k CC points gives you $300 in fare value.

    However, I agree...

    agree with that added value of refundable. 100k CC seems to be worth quite a bit more than $300 at this point

    Another thing to keep in mind, is the Club C cc holders get a free award night redemption with a minium 2 night (award) stay. So at top shelf property you could easily get a $600 value out of 50K in pts.
