Is this a good deal?

It depends on how you plan to use these points. I compared a few hotels with respect to cost per night vs. points needed.

If you buy points for this hotel stay, it will cost you $132

 

In the above example, AAA regular rate for 2 Double Beds – Non Smoking is $156.40, if you buy this deal, it would cost you $132 (24,000 points @ $55 for 10,000 points). Not a great value, also If you redeem points, you lose the ability to participate in any promotions, discounts.

Couple of other examples

A quick review of several redemptions did not show a great value in purchasing the points upfront for a future use, It may be useful if you find a hotel for lower points in a prime location.
