Nothing out of the ordinary. I'm not in the "sky is falling" camp, running to poor value transfers based on no data (or based on ignoring actual data).

TPG has SPG points at 2.7 cents, Alaska at 1.9. Even at a full 25% bonus for 20K, that's a 12% loss right off the bat. And when the "great ways to use your Alaska points" starts with "you could, for example, use a free stopover to spend a few days in a hub like Seattle on a flight from New York to Anchorage", as opposed to 6K hotel properties around the world? I'll pass.
