    Well,i knoe as well the dip in the value that club carlson just did,in respect to the exchange to airline miles but lets be very true,was it ever viable enough to transfer them to airline miles.
    I dont think there would be many takers for the earlier deal of 100k club carlson points to 18k airline miles,as it is.The best part is almost all the club carlson members didnt even notice it,as u can see from the above as well.

    If no one used it, why did they bother changing the ratio?

    I didn't use it, but considering the long list of partners I could imagine it being useful as a way to top off a non-mainstream account for an award that one perhaps otherwise can't easily get miles for. And I think the lack of any notice is what p'ed off many. Doesn't make me confident that they will give warning for other changes. So instead of letting my points sit in my account, I will now do a ton of speculative bookings for future travel and change them around all the time as plans change.

    As far as Jett Rink knows™, yes.
    No, that's not it.

    Maybe it's not what Jett Rink knows, but it is nevertheless new.

    Is there anything else new/good here? Aren't these the same redemption rates for hotels as before?
