What Are Miles & Points Worth?

While we can’t exactly pinpoint the value of miles and points we can give an estimate of the overall value. Your mileage may vary when redeeming miles and points and my fluctuate on the time of year and redemption options.

To calculate the value of these miles and points I take the averages of what I would pay to purchase them and the value of the program it’s apart of.
