However, you'd need to be on the fee-free deal to make it work, 99 fee makes it less fun. And, of course, you can buy 40k points for $240 for the highest level redemption, so can't really say they are worth more.

Note that if you go via pc.com, the offer is only 20k for signing up. If you use the 40k link above, prepare for the risk of having to fight for 40k rather than 20k if not targetted.
This is a good point, its just a shame that there are not that many ICs in the UK. When you add to that the fee and the 10k spend it doesnt seem that worthwhile. However on the plus side it is a visa card and therefore accepted in more places than an AMEX.
