In short, just because they charge that much for it, doesn't mean that it's worth that much.

(FWIW, you are actually valuing the points at more than it costs to buy them)
Haha probably so. I likely use these points differently than most. I hack offers and then use them on luxury trips (luxury airfare and luxury hotels) whenever possible. I don't generally use them to "save money." So my point valuation is probably significantly different than most.
