    Starting this week (official announcement due tomorrow) the cheapest TrueBlue awards will price at 3,500 points rather than the 5,000 from when the TrueBlue 2 program was introduced.

    Also, I've done some data analysis on the value of TrueBlue points and ocme to some interesting conclusions. The average value of a point is up to ~1.4 cents. That's more than it was last time I ran the numbers. International awards are a better deal than domestic ones. And there are some very clear trends suggesting that you should redeem for cheap flights and pay for more expensive ones.

    Finally, if you want to splurge the $599 Mint seats are a SPECTACULAR redemption value (the yellow dot on this chart):

    Thank you very much for the analysis. Gotta love those graphs! The engineer in me always geeks out over those.
