They did this thing in such a backwards manner. What they should have done is converted the Australasia CP points into new CP points at some conversion rate other than 1:1. Instead, they are converting them 1:1 but adjusting the Australia/New Zealand point rates.

The point levels have become bizarre and extremely high in some cases. There is little correlation between property quality or cost and point level. When luxury properties go for 40,000 points and a Quality Inn goes for 75,000 points one has to go "huh?".

Sorry, Choice, but you're pushing me away.

I'll stick to HHonors, Priority Club, and, to a small extent now, SPG.
