You all know that beginning next year (Jan 1st, 2018) FlexPoints (yes, points from FlexPerk cards are called FlexPoints) will be worth 1.5 cpp flat. Some say it is a welcome change but I, like many FP regulars, think it is a huge nerf to the program. I don’t need 1.5 cpp from FP when I can get that exact value from far easier to obtain UR points. Likewise TYP, which is rather easy to obtain as well, also gives a guaranteed 1.3 cpp (soon to be 1.25). In my personal opinion anyone who redeemed FP for anything less than 1.5 cpp or so should be doing a better job of hording UR, TYP, and MR points. FP was and still is a backup program that you should only use when you can get cpp close to 2.0 cpp.
