Not my thing personally but you can definitely get great value if you book one of those or book first class to some places. But for me definitely not now with a kid. I'd rather sell points and buy flights to meet minimum spends on another card. It's the cycle of life. Or, for a recent last trip I booked with a business CIBC Aventura card. I used about $500 worth of points I think it was? Flight to Japan cost $1000 for two in the end since there was a nice cheap flight promo at the time too. Without the promo and without the $500 discount that would typically run me at least $2500 for two. In cases like that it just feels more worthwhile to sell the points for my purposes.Question — you ever tempted to keep points and go on a mini RTW?
